In what has been a lethal blow for Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, BJP workers of the state voiced aloud their apparent support for Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi. Party workers endorsed Modi by displaying his photographs and raising raising slogans in his support. This happened at a rally held in Bihar protesting against the economic policies of the Central government.
The solidarity shown in favour of Narendra Modi is also stated to be a message for Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar. The latter had earlier started a campaign against Modi stating that a “secular person must be projected as NDA’s prime ministerial candidate in 2014 general elections”. Sources have stated that the air at the protest rally was filled with slogans like “Modi Jindabad”, which is being seen as an indication that state party workers are not pleased with Nitish Kumar’s campaign against Modi.
