Embarassed by withdrawal of JD(U) candidate from the race for Kisanganj Lok Sabha seat, Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Monday lambasted him as a “coward” and “betrayer” and hit out at the Congress for taking credit for opening of a campus of Aligarh Muslim University.
“Akhtarul Iman, by pulling himself out of the contest, has not only betrayed the JD(U) but also the people of Kisanganj,” Kumar said, addressing an election meeting in Bhawaniganj haat area.
Kumar was seeking votes for party candidate Mujaheed Alam contesting from Kochadhaman Assembly seat in the bypoll being held simultaneously with Parliamentary poll on April 24.
Kumar came down heavily on Congress for claiming credit for bringing a campus of AMU in Kisanganj.
“It’s Bihar government which provided land for AMU campus in Kisanganj…Congress has not even allocated money for the project so far,” he said.

Kumar had vented his anger against Congress when its chief Sonia Gandhi had come to lay foundation of the new campus here in January this year.
He had alleged that Congress-led UPA wanted to set up the campus in Katihar but changed it to Kisanganj only on his advice.
