Modi hits back at Nitish over verse attack, likens grand alliance partners to '3 Idiots'
Sitamarhi, Oct 27 : Hitting back at Nitish Kumar, who yesterday mouthed a limerick set to a film song to attack him, Prime Minister Narendra Modi today likened JD(U)-RJD-Congress alliance to "three idiots", advised the Chief Minister to perfect the art of "Mushaira" and practise it at leisure after the Bihar polls.
"I have been noticing that Laluji entertains well and Bihar is getting some entertainment after many years. But these days there is an intense rivalry going on between Laluji and Nitishji on many issues--protecting the criminals, doing nepotism, breaking off from truth. Now the competition is also in the field of entertainment.
"Yesterday, I saw Nitishji doing some Mushaira. He felt that he will call some courtiers and journalists, recite poems and defeat Lalu by starting a new form of entertainment. I knew there are three partners in the grand alliance--Congress RJD and JD(U). But I wonder why Nitish Babu chose a song from the film Three Idiots for his first Mushaira. Even if you wanted to parody a poem why did you think of the Three Idiots," Modi said addressing a rally in Sitamarhi.
Nitish had yesterday mocked Modi for not keeping promises and his frequent trips abroad using a song from Bollywood blockbuster 'Three Idiots'.
"Bahati Hawa sa tha woh, Gujarat se aaya tha woh, kaala dhan laane wala thaa wo, kahan gaya use doondho. Humko desh ki fikr sataati hai, woh bus videsh ke daure lagaate hain, humko badhti mahangai satata, wo bas mann ki baat sunata. Har waqt apni selfie khinchta tha woh, Dawood ko laane wala tha woh, kahan gaya use dhoondo," Nitish had said, parodying a song from the film.
Hitting back, Modi said, "What a game of entertainment Nitish Babu! You still have a week's time. Spend it doing this. Call your four-six courtiers, hold a Mushaira.
"Practise it, perfect it, you will get many opportunities after November 8 (the day of counting). You can then sing at leisure songs of your suffering and shed tears ruing why you left someone, why you joined someone. Keep writing poems on all this and keep shedding tears," Modi said.
