Patna: Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, at a function dubbed as 'Advantage Conclave' in Patna on Saturday, called for the final nail in the coffin of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) saying India had to be made 'Sangh-free' if democracy had to be maintained in the nation.

Kumar, who has a knack of turning even the most benign event into a partisan political affair, said that the time had arrived for all non-RSS parties, read the BJP, to unite and bring an end to the 'communal' Sangh Parivar once and for all.

"The current BJP, in the absence of Atal Bihari Vajpayee, L, K, Advani, and Murli Manohar Joshi, is only selling its communal agenda to divide people based on their religion. Uniting against the Sangh is the only way to save democracy in India," Kumar, who sees himself as the successor of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, said.

Presenting his own philosophy on management, the Chief Minister, who was seen a day ago in the company of several BJP leaders during a Ramnavami rally, in an obvious reference to the Prime Minister, said that management was more important than event management.

"There is a need to go deeper than just event management. Hard work for the welfare of the people is more important than just organizing events," Kumar said.

The Janata Dal – U President, who is conducting a statewide tour to justify imposition of prohibition in Bihar, said that he had found out that not only women were happy with the ban on the sale of alcoholic drink in Bihar; even men were coming out in praise of the prohibition.
