The BJP was yet to recuperate from the shock of it allies — TDP and YSR Congress — parting their way from the NDA alliance over Special Category Status (SCS), on Tuesday Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar attacked the saffron party leaders by saying ‘will not compromise on issue of social harmony.”

Referring to the allegations of corruption against Lalu Prasad Yadav’s family without taking any name, the Bihar chief minister said, “I had asked them to clarify about the corruption charges in public but they failed. We took our own decision. We did not compromise with corruption and in the same way we will not compromise on social harmony,”

“Some people are creating disturbance in the society by issuing meaningless statements. Such people should be aware of the fact that I will not tolerate any attempt to disturb social harmony in Bihar,” Kumar said, while addressing a youth program organised by his party at SK Memorial Hall in Patna.

The Bihar chief minister without taking names of state BJP president Nityanand Rai and Giriraj Singh, who recently made statements contrary to the state government’s stand on the murder of a BJP leader, said, “There was a murder in Darbhanga district recently due to a land dispute and some started saying that the murder was carried out because a square was named PM Narendra Modi chowk.”

“Bihar deputy CM himself tweeted about the murder. Police officers investigating the murder also said that the incident happened because of land dispute,” Kumar added.

“If any political leader goes to Darbhanga and meaningless statements, it is wrong,” the CM added.
