New Delhi: RJD chief Lalu Prasad on Monday took a pot-shot at Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar over Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi's remarks against casteist leaders of Bihar and Uttar Pradesh. On Sunday, Modi while addressing state BJP executive meet had blamed caste politics for slow socio-economic growth of states like Bihar and UP.
"Nitish Kumar and Sushil Modi should respond to this. Narendra Modi is Nitish's leader. Both are a part of NDA," he told reporters on Monday. Lalu Prasad also hit out at Narednra Modi for his remark.
Modi, during a public meeting in Rajkot, had reportedly said that Bihar, at one point of time, was a political and spiritual leader of the country, but it slipped into socio-economical backwardness ever since the casteist leadership
took to centre stage, without taking names of individual politicians.
