PM Modi’s Ayodhya Remark Brings Back Memory Of Nitish’s Taunt In 2015

PM Modi, while addressing a joint rally with Nitish Kumar, began with applauding the incumbent CM, but his comments on Ayodhya were perceived by many as an indirect dig at Nitish Kumar. 

In Bihar’s Mithila region today, while campaigning for the ongoing Bihar elections, Prime Minister Modi referred to the Ram temple in Ayodhya as he outlined his government’s work and highlighted his coalition’s promises for the state.

PM Modi, while addressing a joint rally with Nitish Kumar, began with applauding the incumbent CM, but his comments on Ayodhya were perceived by many as an indirect dig at Nitish Kumar.

Ma Sita” (Lord Ram’s consort) would look with happiness upon her birthplace Mithila as well as Ayodhya,” the Prime Minister said.

“After centuries of penance, finally a grand Ram Temple is being built in Ayodhya. Those in politics who used to ask us for a tareekh (date), they are compelled to applaud. This is the identity of the BJP, the NDA – what we say, we do,” PM Modi said.

Many said that the Prime Minister’s comment reminded of memories of Nitish Kumar’s criticism of the BJP in 2015, when he was still in coalition with Lalu Yadav’s RJD and Congress. Nitish had said: “BJP and RSS people keep saying – Ram Lalla hum aayenge, mandir wahin banayenge, par tareekh nahin batayenge (Ram Lalla we will come, build a temple there, but won’t give a date).”

However, before making a comment on Ayodhya, PM Modi showered praises on Nitish Kumar. He said: “In the last 15 years, Bihar has progressed under Nitish-ji’s leadership.” PM Modi also called Nitish “Bhaavi Mukhyamantri” (prospective Chief Minister) and gave him credit for the economic turnaround of Bihar.
