What sin has Narendra Modi committed, Rajnath asks JD(U)

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president Rajnath Singh, who arrived in Patna for his two day visit, after his party’s split with Janata Dal  (United)  cautioned Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar against the Congress. ‘Congress se bachkar rahiyega (beware of Congress),’  warned Singh though the BJP president did not name the Bihar chief minister during his address at a meeting of his party’s workers meet on Sunday.

‘You have made a mistake by joining hands with the Congress, It is a dangerous step to go with the Congress. But JD-U has joined hands with it’ said Singh. Stressing that the BJP was not in favour of ending its 17-year-old alliance with the JD-U, teh BJP president said that he has failed to understand why JD-U  ended the alliance.

Rajnath Singh said that BJP’s crime was to appoint Gujarat chief minister Narendra Modi as party campaign committee head. ‘How has Modi become an issue suddenly? Why he was not  n issue from 2002 to 2013,’ asked Singh.  Unlike most of the BJP leaders, including Rajiv Pratap Rudy, Ravi Shankar Prasad, and Shahnawaz Husain, who attacked Nitish Kumar for ending the alliance, Rajnath Singh did not take the name of the Bihar chief minister even once during his address.

He appealed to the workers to help the party win all 40 Lok Sabha seats in Bihar in the next general polls to ensure a BJP government at the centre.

While trashing JD(U)’s allegations that Narendra Modi was an ‘autocratic’ and ‘divisive’ leader, BJP president asked what ‘sin had he committed that provoked’ the erstwhile ally to walk away after remaining together for 17 long years.

‘What sin has Modi committed?’ Singh asked during his address to BJP workers at Sanjay Gandhi stadium here.

The BJP leader is on a two-day visit to bolster the party’s preparations for the next General Elections post the separation with JD(U).

Categorically rejecting the JD(U) charge of Modi being an ‘autocratic’ and ‘divisive’ leader with whom political relations was not possible, Singh attacked the erstwhile ally for ‘suddenly’ finding fault with the Gujarat chief minister and his leadership after remaining part of the alliance for 17 long years.

‘You have had no problems with Modi between 2002 and 2013, during which his stocks continued to rise ... But all of a sudden you have found fault with him and decided to part ways by citing difficulties in working with him,’ the BJP national president said.
