BJP leader Sushil Kumar Modi took a dig at Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and his Telangana counterpart K Chandrashekhar Rao, saying their meeting on Wednesday is a “meeting of two dreamers”.
Telangana Chief Minister Rao, fondly known as ‘KCR’, will reach Patna on Wednesday and meet Kumar as the two leaders seek to form a united front against the hegemony of the BJP.
KCR will also pay compensation checks to the family members of soldiers killed in a standoff with Chinese troops in Galwan Valley in eastern Ladakh.
Taking a swipe at the meeting, Modi said that it is a meeting of two leaders who are losing their ground in their respective states and “aspire to become the Prime Minister of the country”.
This is a meeting of two daydreamers who have no stand in front of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the BJP leader told reporters. He dubbed the meeting “the latest comedy show of opposition unity”.
Earlier this month, Nitish Kumar switched sides again, joining hands with Lalu Prasad Yadav’s Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) after parting ways with the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).
Sushil Modi was the deputy chief minister for over a decade with Kumar as the chief minister in the JD(U)-BJP government in Bihar.
