On Wednesday, Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar slammed Yogi Adityanath, the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, for his comments on “throwing out infiltrators”, and added that “everyone belongs to this country”.
“Who does all this malicious campaigning? Who says all this faltu baat (nonsense)? Who will throw out people? No one dares do that. Everyone belongs to this country, everyone is Indian,” the JD(U) leader said in a public rally.
Though Mr Kumar did not directly name the UP CM, his comments were seen as a rejoinder to his Uttar Pradesh counterpart, who had talked about the new law that enables Indian citizenship for non-Muslim minorities from neighbouring Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan if they fled religious persecution and entered India before 2015.
