    BJP on path of self-destruction: Nitish

    PATNA: A day after Narendra Modi was anointed by the BJP as its prime ministerial candidate for the 2014 Lok Sabha polls, Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar said projection of a " Hindu fundamentalist" would not help the saffron party to wrest power at the Centre.

    "Vinash kale vipreet buddhi (wrong thinking at a time of crisis)," said Nitish on whose insistence the JD(U) walked out of NDA, breaking its 17-year-old alliance with the BJP three month ago when it Modi's ascendency became clear. "We knew this would happen, so there is no element of surprise in this decision... Mere media hype will not yield any result," he said.

    "The people of the country will never accept the party and its divisive ideology, which aims to weaken and divide the nation. There will be no Modi impact in Bihar," the CM said.

    LJP chief Ram Vilas Paswan said the NDA has already disintegrated over the Modi issue and post election, hardly any party will join the alliance or support the BJP to form government. "On its own, the BJP cannot win enough seats to form the government. The internal conflict within the BJP will further mar its chances," he said. Paswan said as the choice of RSS, Modi would only further its communal agenda.

    Paswan claimed the JD(U), too, had been weakened in Bihar after the break-up of the NDA. "In Bihar, the BJP may be in a little advantageous position ... there will be direct contest between the BJP and RJD-LJP alliance," he said.

    "Modi's dream to address (the nation) from the ramparts of Red Fort will never be fulfilled," said food and consumer protection minister and JD (U) national general secretary Shyam Rajak.

    Transport minister Brishen Patel said Nitish should be projected as the prime ministerial candidate as the person who "put a lawless and backward state like Bihar on the track of development".

    BJP on path of self-destruction: Nitish - The Times of India

    ************************

    Is the elevation of Mr Modi as the PM candidate spooking Nitish Kumar?

    He took a deliberated and considered decision by severing ties with the BJP..

    It is obvious that being the savvied politician that he is, he would have worked out the pros and cons and the arithmetic of the votes wherein he must have realised that the Muslim votes were criticall and hence his decision to part ways.

    Therefore, why should he care as to what the BJP does or who they select. After all, it, in no way affects his electoral arithmetic- at least the one he has done! So, why this sudden outburst?

    Or has he having second thoughts, given the massive rally attendance that he is seeing Modi drawing all over the country, to include States where BJP has no presence as AP (in Hyderadabd) and where people paid to enter, instead of being bussed in to swell the crowd artificially - a new phenomenon!

    Or has Nitish Kumar become the 'conscience' of India and 'Mr India' himself, as his sidekick Pawan Verma assigns the status to himself?

    Mr India, I believe, is an Invisible Man.

    Is Modi's ascendancy giving rise to Mr Nitish Kumar's and Pawan Verma's fear that they might vanish forever from India's political scene, or at least, if that does not happen, become a footnote in Bihar and India's political legacy?

    Pawan Verma, the suave spokes person for JD(U), on TV last night mentioned Gujarat's %age of poor as 33% whereas it is 16%. Among all states Gujarat and Bihar showed the maximum fall in poverty rates between 2004-2005 and 2009-2010 as per Planning Commission (Link). Both commendable performances.

    Pawan Verma also talked about `incusive growth` of Bihar vs non-inclusive growth of Gujarat. With 80% of citizens of Bihar not having electricity he must mean `inclusive suffering` perhaps.

    No need for JD(U) spokes persons to disparage Gujarat or be economical with the truth just because they do not like the Chief Minister.

    Not meant to disparage the improvement JD(U) under Nitish Kumar has brought to the state but Bihar has still plenty of catching up to do with other states.

    PS : Love to see the day when Nitish Kumar has to take his plea for `special status` for Bihar to Prime Minister Narendra Modi...:p

    Pawan Verma ia adept in changing statistics.

    He has been corrected many a time.

    What is most disconcerting is his nasal tone. Apparently there is some constriction in his nasal canal.

    He loses out in the debates because of his Holier than Thou sermon from the pulpit.

    However, he is way more acceptable than Sanjay Jha, the hamara congress dot com man who has weaselled his way up the Congress food chain, by having himself anointed as a Spokesman.

    2014 will not open the doors for him to be elevated as a Minister,and thus crush his ambition because he is nowhere in the lines of Jayanthi Natarajan or Mickey Manish Tiwari!

    What do you all think is Nitish's prospect in Bihar given that he is no longer riding the winning combine of yore.

    Laloo and Paswan is riding high, at least in their statements.

    What is the prospect of the Congress?

    What is the prospect of the BJP?
