BJP MP Kirti Azad says he has been snubbed by Nitish

In an indication that all was not well between NDA partners in Bihar, BJP MP Kirti Azad on Sunday accused chief minister Nitish Kumar of snubbing him at a review meeting.

‘The chief minister snubbed me twice when I raised the issue of water-logging in my constituency at the review meeting by him at Darbhanga on Saturday,’ Azad said in Darbhanga.

‘He (Kumar) spoke to me in an indignant way and asked to keep quite while I was trying to highlight development issues of my constituency ... He did it not once, but twice,’ the BJP MP from Darbhanga said, adding it was done in full view of officials and public representatives.

Azad said despite Kumar’s ‘impolite’ behaviour, he was undeterred and highlighted the shortcomings in the implementation of the centrally-sponsored schemes, including the Prime Minister’s Gram Sadak Yojana in the district.

Azad said it claimed to have set up schools and hospitals but had not appointed teachers and doctors in them in sufficient numbers.
