Patna: Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) state President Ramchandra Purvey, talking to the media shortly after participating in the nationwide bandh by the leftist parties, trade unions, and a number of anti-NDA parties in Patna on Wednesday, accused Chief Minister Nitish Kumar of using derogatory language to describe his opponents that was beneath the dignity of the office he occupied.
As the RJD allies in the Mahagathbandhan burnt effigies of Nitish Kumar and Prime Minister Narendra Modi at district headquarters across the state, Purvey, referring to the recent comment by the Chief Minister wherin he said that the Grand Alliance would embrace even a 'sadak chhap' (an man with low intelligence) as long as he or she was anti-NDA, said that such language was not worthy of a Chief Minister who is supposed to set an example for others.
"Nitish Kumar called Rashtriya Lok Samata Party (RLSP) leader Upendra Kushwaha a lowlife and Muskesh Sahni a 'sadak chhap' person. These same 'sadak chhap' leaders will strip all the power of Nitish Kumar and bring him down to the 'sadak chhap'," he said.
Describing Nitish Kumar as a back-stabber, Purvey said that he was in power by betraying the mandate of the people.
"He ignored the verdict of the voters and formed the government with the help of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). People of Bihar are now going to teach him a lesson," the RJD said.
