PATNA: Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar hit back at the state BJP President Samrat Chaudhary’s recent remark of ‘mitti me mila denge’ (reducing to dust), stating that the new generation of BJP leaders lack brains. Kumar, who is also the de facto leader of JDU, commented that he did not want to respond to such comments made by BJP honchos. Chaudhary’s statement warned of reducing Nitish Kumar and his party to dust, drawing parallels to Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath’s warning to mafias in the Assembly.
Kumar further stated that those who use such words have no brains and can do whatever they want. He also made a jibe at BJP leaders, saying that they lack intelligence. Chaudhary’s statement had claimed that the BJP workers should commit to reducing Nitish Kumar politically to dust in the 2024 and 2025 elections, alleging that he has taken too many U-turns and has betrayed the BJP.
Taking potshots at Nitish Kumar, Bihar BJP President Samrat Chaudhary said, “People are not ready to see Nitish Kumar anymore. He has taken so many U-turns that every BJP worker now has to take revenge. The Prime Minister had fulfilled his promise of making Nitish Kumar the Chief Minister in 2020, but even after that, he ran away.”
“Now that he has run away, we have to ensure reducing him to dust politically. In 2024 and 2025, BJP workers should make a commitment to reduce Nitish to dust politically,” he said.
