"It was wrong to say that there was something wrong with the DNA of Nitish Kumar. It was an insult to Bihar," the Aam Aadmi Party leader told a seminar organised by the Bihar government on good governance. "The people of Bihar will reply to it in the assembly elections," he added. Kejriwal stated the Bharatiya Janata Party had committed the same mistake during Delhi's assembly elections by questioning his 'gotra'.

"Now they have raised the question of DNA... People will reply to them," he added. Kejriwal supported Nitish Kumar's demand of special category status for Bihar and described the Rs 1.25 lakh crore package for the state announced by PM Modi as an attempt to buy over the people of Bihar. Kejriwal, who shared the dais with Nitish Kumar, lauded his government's good governance.

"People in Delhi also talk about Nitish Kumar's good governance," he added. He said he was happy to know that nearly 11 crore people had benefited from the the Right to Service Act started by the Bihar government.
