Kannur: Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Saturday accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of not implementing any of the electoral promises made by him. Addressing an election meeting at Panoor in support of Congress-led UDF in the district, the JD(U) chief alleged that Modi was deceiving people by making mere promises.
"Modi and his friends made a lot of promises during the last Lok Sabha polls to the people of Bihar but after getting power, they forgot all the offers they had made," he said, adding, "Modi had adopted the same attitude towards Kerala as well".
Kumar said it was the Grand Alliance of JD(U) and Congress which implemented the promises made to the people of Bihar. The total prohibition which his government implemented in Bihar was for the welfare of the people.
Training his guns on the Left parties, he said CPI(M) and CPI took a stand in favour of BJP during the Bihar polls. "CPI(M) was trying to help BJP in Kerala also as they did in Bihar," he charged.
He said, "The growth of BJP and communal forces in the state has to be viewed very seriously and it should be examined how this happened." The state's strength was its secular character and growing influence of communal forces was an indication of impending danger to the state, he added.
Kumar also highlighted the various development initiatives taken by Congress-led UDF government during its five-year rule....
