As Prime Minister Narendra Modi landed in Bihar to kick-start his party’s poll campaign, Chief Minister Nitish Kumar today launched an attack on him, posing seven questions to him on retrieval of blackmoney, farmers’ issues and the promises he had made to the state during Lok Sabha polls.

“I am raising 7 critical issues-2 specific to Bihar and 5 that in my view people across India want to hear from the Prime Minister,” Kumar said in a tweet.

Taking a dig at the Prime Minister, he said, “We’re grateful after 14 months Modiji finds time to visit Bihar as we get ready to hear more promises what about the old ones?”

“You promised special status for Bihar. 14 months and people are still waiting,” the chief minister said in his posers to the PM.

        OMG!!!! He still remember Bihar? No, no, no, no.... The election is coming, I think. Did Mr. Modi tell anything about the special status for Bihar, which he had promised during General election? Development in Bihar? Oh, really? How can Bihar develop its industries, when all the near by states having special status, and thus have a lower rate of taxes than Bihar? Why does he forget that developed states like Maharashtra, Gujrat also enjoys the special status. Then, why Bihar should not get that? Politics is hurting Bihar, so Mr. PM, Please provide special status for Bihar. Rest will be taken care by Bihar. We don't need your special fund but the special status for Bihar.

          That is largely true but not in the case of Nitish. So, since Modi will do nothing for Bihar and Nitish has a track record, Nitish should rule.
