Bihar better than Gujarat, says RSS Supremo Mohan Bhagwat

Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangha Chief Mohan Bhagwat has praised Bihar CM Nitish Kumar for his Development Model and compared him better than Narendra Modi. He said that Bihar was ahead of Gujarat in terms of development.

In his first-ever chat with foreign media, when asked to rate state govts on good governance, he said bihar, gujarat, in that order,” tweeted Rama Lakshmi, a journalist with the Washington Post’s New Delhi bureau.

Earlier he had supported Narendra Modi as a PM Candidate slamming Nitish Kumar who said that NDA should have a secular PM nominee. Nitish Kumar has openly advocated his stand against Narendra Modi being projected as the NDA’s prime ministerial candidate.

It seems that RSS leaders were trying to ease Mr Kumar as JD(U) would be a crucial ally in NDA for the upcoming Lok Sabha election.

A few days back, BJP president Nitin Gadkari held a luncheon meeting with Kumar where the duo discussed issues ranging from development index to 2014 General elections. Gadkari also assured Mr Kumar saying that no decision has been taken yet on Mr Modi’s status for the general elections.

The RSS has said Mr Bhagwat has not been quoted correctly. It says that the RSS chief said that the people of each state feel that the model followed by their government is superior.
