    Nitish Kumar is commander of secular forces: Ajmer dargah chief

    PATNA: Chief minister Nitish Kumar, who is looking for expansion of his Muslim vote bank after split in NDA, got a shot in his arm when the religious head of Ajmer Sharif dargah, one of the most important Muslim shrines in the country, praised the CM and called him 'commander' of secular forces.

    The Sajjada Nashin (successor to the Chishti order) of Dargah Khwaja Garib Nawaz in Ajmer, Diwan Syed Shah Zainul Abedin Ali Khan, said he has learnt that under the leadership of Nitish, the Muslim society has developed widespread interest in education and Muslim boys and girls are getting enrolled in educational institutions in large numbers.

    Diwan sahib, as he is popularly known, who hit the headlines in April last year for boycotting the visit of Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari, prayed to the Almighty to encourage Nitish to do more for Bihar and serve its people without any discrimination and bring happiness on all faces.

    The CM met the Sajjada Nashin on late Friday evening in the Khanqah at Maner, on the outskirts of Patna, during the 744th Urs of Hazrat Sultanul Makhdoom Sheikh Kamaluddin Ahmad Yahya Maneri. The Yahya Maneri's Urs from this year is being observed as Sufi Mahotsava by the state government, said tourism secretary Mihir Kumar Singh.

    The CM sought the blessings of Diwan sahib, who was here to attend the annual Urs, the birth anniversary of Sufi saint. The religious head blessed Nitish and prayed for his success in political, social and personal life.

    Nitish also met Maner shrine Sajjada Nashin Hazrat Syed Shah Enayatullah Firdausi and also released his English title 'Fragrance of Sufi-ism'. He offered 'chadar' at the mausoleum and prayed for peace and communal harmony.

    The CM also informed the Ajmer shrine head about the Sufi circuit being developed in the state, which will connect all the spots linked to Sufi saints. Under this plan, the government has decided to organize Sufi Mahotsava at Maner and other important places. "With the blessings of the Sufi saints and their followers, we will progress and reach new heights of development," the CM said.

    Good. Atleast there will be a split in Muslim votes between RJD and JDU. Benefit for BJP, as they can rigorously polarise the hindu votes in their favour. People in Bihar should see how Nitish ended the NDA partnership for his own selfish reasons.

    Nitish K and JDU are entitled to their own agenda.

    They would have surely weighed issues before taking the decision.

    If the Maharajgunge elections is to be taken as an indicator, then Laloo, the political clown, is surely gaining grounds.

    And if the split means the clown comes to rule the circus, then good luck to Behar!

    It won't make any difference to the tobacco industry since both chew tobacco!
