BJP's double standards exposed, says Nitish

Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Monday assailed the BJP for adopting double standards in the Lalit Modi row in which the Opposition has been baying for External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj’s blood.

“They have different yardsticks for different persons. Whenever an issue of impropriety was raised in the previous regime, the BJP would be the first one to seek resignation of the leader concerned. And now, when a UK newspaper has exposed this misdemeanour, the entire BJP leaders, backed by its parent organisation, RSS, have joined hands to defend Swaraj,” said Nitish.

He added that had the UK tabloid not reported the wrongdoing, “the BJP leaders would have kept blowing their trumpet that Modi regime is a scam-free government.”

Talking to media after his weekly Janata Durbar, the JD-U strongman again took a swipe at the BJP president Amit Shah and advised him to perform yoga at his home or “at Munger School of Yoga, which is considered as the most authentic institute which teaches yoga.”

Nitish’s remarks come in the wake of reports that Amit Shah will perform yoga in Patna on June 21, the International Yoga Day. “Has he seen his body? I suggest he should do yoga in the privacy of his residence. This will help him keep good health,” Nitish  had earlier said.
