BJP may not have fielded Chief Minister Narendra Modi in Bihar assembly poll campaign but its senior leader L K Advani today praised him while seeking votes saying minorities in Gujarat had the best of opportunities.
"The minorities enjoy the best opportunities in Gujarat and per capita
income is high. People belonging to all sections of the society are
happy a lot, though it is a different issue that the chief minister gets
bad press all the time because of politics and people in Congress," he
told an election meeting here.
Modi will not be campaigning in Bihar with Chief Minister Nitish Kumar having indicated his reservations.
In June, the chief minister had cancelled a dinner for the BJP top brass
to convey his disapproval over an advertisement that had featured him
with Modi on the aid provided by Gujarat to cope with the devastating
floods that had hit Kosi region, two years ago.
Kumar had subsequently returned the Rs 5 crore lying unspent in the
chief minister's relief account that was received from Gujarat for the
floods. Because of the Bihar CM's reservations, Modi had also stayed
away from campaigning in Bihar in the run-up to last year's Lok Sabha
Advani described the Congress as the 'mother of all corruption' and
claimed NDA-ruled states in the country had set an example of good
"NDA-ruled states have proved to be role model for others," he said.
He also said he felt the absence of ailing senior colleague Atal Bihari Vajpayee and JD(U) George Fernandes.
