Giriraj Singh exacerbated the ongoing war with words in the backdrop of the troubles caused by flood and waterlogging; by apologising on behalf of the NDA to the people living in affected areas for missing out on Durga Puja festivities.

He tweeted: “The Durga Puja fair has started from today. I apologize on behalf of Bihar NDA to those Sanatanis where puja pandals and melas have not been organized due to floods.”

Taking to Twitter, Singh apologised to the people, indirectly hitting out at the Nitish government again. He has previously targeted Nitish Kumar-led government and blamed the chief minister and his deputy Sushil Kumar Modi for people’s misery.

By refusing to back out from the open squabble initiated by his allegations over favouritism in relief distribution in Begusarai’s flood affected areas earlier this week, the Union minister has not only put the top leadership of the two major alliance partners in Bihar in a bind but also brought them to a state of confrontation.

Nitish Kumar had recently approached the Prime Minister asking to clarify whether this is Giriraj Singh’s personal frustrations or the general stance of the entire party. Pawan Varme, JD(U) Spokesperson said an attack on the Chief Minister is not acceptable especially when the BJP is running a coalition government.
