He charged Patna district officials with colluding with the JD(U) and claimed that he was framed under a “conspiracy” hatched by the Nitish Kumar government.
Singh hit out at JD(U) national spokesperson K C Tyagi for allegdly ‘singling’ him out for attack over his remarks that critics and opponents of Modi should go to Pakistan, but maintaining ‘a cowardly silence’ on the hate speech by Samajwadi Party leader Azam Khan and JD(U) leader Shakuni Chaudhary, who had reportedly threatened to eliminate Modi.
Sticking to his guns that he had not violated provisions of the Model Code, Singh said, “I have not breached the provisions of the Model Code in place for the general elections in whatsoever manner to warrant criticism from all quarters and lodging of FIRs against me.”
