Millennium Post

Nitish launches counter-attack against BJP

“I had no prime ministerial ambition,” senior JD(U) leader Nitish Kumar on Saturday said while countering BJP’s argument that he broke the alliance to occupy the top post and accused the saffron party of “spreading lies”.

“I have been accused of breaking the alliance with BJP to pursue ambition to become Prime Minister. But truth is that I had no such ambition,” he told a JD(U) function to mark the birth anniversary of socialist leader Karpoori Thakur. BJP is an expert in advertising falsehoods like Goebel, the minister for publicity in the Adolf Hitler regime, Kumar, who is playing a pivotal role in the merger of splinter parties of Janata Parivar, said.

“And even if for a minute I say yes I wanted to become Prime Minister, is it a sin?” he said ripping through assertions of BJP President Amit Shah against him. He said the BJP president had claimed that by becoming PM Modi, a person from extremely backward caste has fullfilled the dream of Karpoori Thakur.
