Coming down heavily on Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar’s call for a “BJP/RSS-mukt Bharat”, the BJP on Sunday said the Janata Dal-United (JD-U) leader was “daydreaming”.

“What is Nitish Kumar’s credibility to call for a BJP-mukt Bharat when he himself had been ‘BJP-yukt’ (associated with BJP) for 17 long years?” BJP spokesman Shahnawaz Hussain said.

Hussain said such statements were a “desperate bid on the part of a regional party leader” to hog the limelight. “Nitish Kumar’s JD-U is a regional party that has never contested on all the seats even in Bihar,” he said.

Hussain said the Bihar chief minister was dreaming of playing a crucial role in national politics. “These are his dreams but these dreams will not be realised. The Janata Dal is not united even in Bihar. So Nitish Kumar first needs to build his party at a national level before giving such statements,” Hussain added.

Nitish Kumar had on Saturday appealed to the opposition to unite against the Bharatiya Janata Party. “All the organisations which do not identify with BJP/RSS communal politics will have to come under one banner to save our democracy,” Nitish Kumar said.

He predicted that the country was heading towards a bipolar political divide with BJP-RSS on one side and the rest on the other. Nitish Kumar’s comments did not go down well with the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) as well. “RSS is the soul of India. How can they free India of its soul?” RSS leader Rakesh Sinha said on Sunday.

    Nitish is so scared for his survival that he is talking abt a slogan which he cannot even implement it. Sangh is an ideology, not a political party. Slogan looks like copy of cong mukt bharat , so not even a original . And everybody knows that second hand material is bound to fail?? Loser Nitish

      Mr. Nitish will be tested this year . If India has above normal monsoons, Bihar is bound to be inundated by floods. In such an event, his administration will collapse and only organizations that will provide relief will be Armed forces and RSS. Let's see his utterances then ...
