In a scathing attack on Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar , senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader and former minister Giriraj Singh on Saturday said that the JD(U) leader was quarreling with Narendra Modi like a "dehati aurat" (rural woman) out of "jealousy".
"He is behaving like a dehati aurat (rural woman) and quarreling with Narendra Modi out of jealousy," the BJP leader told reporters at Patna airport after Narendra Modi flew for Gaurichak to meet family of blast victim Rajnarain Singh.
"It does not seem he is a Chief Minister...the way he is acting against Narendra Modi out of jealousy," he said, adding, "This reflects his small mindedness."
On the chief minister's indirect dig on Modi that some people were trying to "disturb" the harmony of the state, Singh said Kumar was "vitiating" the environment but the BJP would not allow it to happen.
Singh, who had served as minister for Animal Husbandry in the BJP-JD(U) coalition government in Bihar, alleged that there was violation of protocol for Modi.
"The District Magistrate did not visit him at state guest house and also at airport except for a Deputy Superintendent of Police level officer no other senior civil or police officers were present to supervise security arrangements for Narendra Modi at the airport," he said and alleged this was done to "please" Kumar.
Narendra Modi is putting up at state guest house which is across the road to Chief Minister Nitish Kumar's One Anne Marg residence in Patna.
