Shivanand Tiwari upset over repeated media question over Narendra Modi


Patna,(BiharTimes): Janata Dal (United) spokesman and national general secretary, Shivanand Tiwari, on Saturday lost his cool when media once again asked the question on prime ministerial candidate of the BJP. Incidentally, this happened when he along with party chief Sharad Yadav and BJP spokesman, Shahnawaz Husain, were present in the state Assembly for the filing of nomination papers for the Rajya Sabha by-election by the Janata Dal (United) leader, K C Tyagi.

When mediapersons asked the same old question about the likelihood of Narendra Modi being projected as the BJP’s prime ministerial candidate, Tiwari retorted: “I fail to understand why media is getting restless on this issue. It is our job to decide as to who will be the PM candidate...Media has made the matter a monkey disease.”

Sharad Yadav, who was present when Tyagi filed his nomination, left the venue when Tiwari was talking to the media.

A visibly upset Tiwari said, it is well known that BJP is the largest partner of NDA. So the PM candidate would be from it and would be finalised after discussion in the coalition.

Shahnawaz Hussain, who was with Tiwari, did not respond to the media’s questions on the issue of Modi.
