Undettered, NaMo’s Patna Hunkar subdues Shehzada

Modi, at his Hunkar rally in Patna, said he would stop calling Rahul Gandhi a Shehzada (prince) if the Congress decides to discontinue its ‘dynastic rule’.

‘Congress ke mitra bahut pareshan hai ki Modi shehzada kyon keh rahe hain... unhe nind nahin aati hai (Congress leaders are troubled with Rahul being referred to as shehzada. They are unable to sleep well),’ Modi said at a poll rally.

‘Lekin main phuchhta hun ki shehzade kehne ki naubat kyun aai (I want to know why I was compelled to refer him as shehzade?)’ he said at the BJP’s election rally in Gandhi Maidan, his first public meeting in Bihar in over three years. Modi, the BJP’s PM candidate, said people dislike dynastic rule as much as the Congress tends to feel offended over this sensitive issue.

Modi also tore into his bete noire Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar on his home turf, saying he was an ‘opportunist’ who had ‘betrayed and backstabbed’ Jai Prakash Narayan, Ram Manohar Lohia and also people of Bihar for prime ministerial dreams.

In his broadside against the Bihar chief minister, Modi added, ‘Our Muslim brothers in Bihar are so backward. In Gujarat, some of the fastest developing regions are Muslim dominated.’

Repeatedly attacking Nitish for the snapping of JD(U)-BJP ties in June this year, Modi alleged that Bihar CM was playing hide and seek with Congress, against whom his mentors JP and Lohia fought all their lives, and was dreaming of becoming the prime minister.

‘One who shunned Jai Prakash, why can’t he leave BJP? He fought all his life to free the nation from the Congress and the one who claims to be Lohia’s disciple has stabbed him in his back and is now playing hide and seek with Congress,’ the BJP leader said.
