Patna: Brushing aside the claims for making Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar the next Prime Minister of the country, BJP Rajya Sabha Member Sushil Kumar Modi on Friday said that thousands of people in the country of 130 crore population are capable of becoming PM.
The RS member, who had worked closely with Kumar as his Deputy, said here that the leader and the party which will have the support of more than 250 members in Lok Sabha would only become the PM.
Modi accused Kumar of shielding corrupts to remain in power and dubbed the government in Bihar “of the corrupt, by the corrupt and for the corrupt”.
Claiming the zero tolerance towards corruption of Nitish Kumar rendered as an eye washes in the new government, Modi alleged that the government, Nitish Kumar was running with the support of RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav was actually a “system of corrupt governance”.
Under the changed scenario, Kumar had no moral right to make any comment on the statement of the Prime Minister regarding the polarization of corrupts. Kumar is flanked by Deputy Chief Minister Tejaswi Prasad Yadav, charge-sheeted in Rs 750 crore Mall scam, Modi alleged adding that the trial against Tejaswi would start any time.
Nitish Kumar had sought an explanation from Tejaswi in 2017 after a CBI raid in connection with the Mall scam, said Modi asked did Tejasvi get the clean chit that Nitish Kumar again joined his hands with him.
