NEW DELHI: The ill behaviour meted out to Rajya Sabha deputy chairman Harivansh has given a fresh weapon to the ruling NDA coalition in Bihar just ahead of the polls. How the issue is set to play out during the campaign was evident when deputy chief minister and BJP leader Sushil Kumar Modi on Monday referred to this episode as an attack on “pride of Bihar” and said that people will give a befitting reply to the opposition.
Speaking on the occasion of inauguration and foundation laying of infrastructure projects by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the Bihar deputy CM said, “I would like to mention a point here as every person in Bihar is deeply hurt. Rajya Sabha deputy chairman, Harivanshji is respected in Bihar and all over the country. The uncalled for incident which occurred with him in Parliament yesterday, has hurt the people and pride of Bihar. The people of Bihar will give a befitting reply to the opposition for their behavior.”
Chief minister Nitish Kumar also said that whatever happened in the Upper House on Sunday was “wrong” and highly “condemnable”. He said one should put his point clearly rather than resorting to such acts. Kumar said the reforms in agriculture laws have been brought for the benefit of the poor and farmers.
