New Delhi: In a veiled attack against his bete noire Nitish Kumar, Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi said Bihar would not forgive him for breaking ties with the BJP.
Addressing the party leaders and workers in Bihar on teleconference on Saturday evening, Narendra Modi, who is BJP’s election campaign chief, said those who 'betrayed' BJP would be defeated by people of the State.
Instead of spelling out the election strategy, Modi used much of his talks with them the angst over ally Janata Dal (United).
"There is a 1974-like anti-Congress wave prevailing in the country now. The mandate of the people of Bihar was for NDA. Like then (in 1974), those who betrayed the people's mandate in Bihar will be taught a lesson," Modi told party leaders.
The decision to choose Bihar to begin his future game plan has assumed significant as JD-U who rules in Bihar had recently announced a split with BJP after 17 years of coalition.
