"The article is a historical fact. But under pressure from the Congress, the state government got it removed," senior BJP leader Sushil Kumar Modi said in a statement.
"CM Nitish Kumar had said that he did not work under pressure from anybody. But, his government is taking decisions sometimes under pressure from RJD chief Lalu Prasad and sometimes from the Congress," he said.
Sushil Kumar  Modi maintained that the state government should clearly state whether it was not true that the "late Prime Minister Indira Gandhi had put Loknayak Jayprakash Narayan in jail during emergency and subjected him to torture which led to his death...isn't Congress responsible for the death of JP."
The BJP leader, a disciple of the socialist leader said, "For the sake of protecting the government, the secular alliance is trying to change history. The question arises whether the state government would now stop the honorarium being paid to participants of JP movement under pressure from
the Congress."
Modi said that Nitish Kumar had claimed that he himself was a follower of Ram Manohar Lohia and JP. First he made a mockery of it by joining hands with the Congress to form government in the state and the same government was now indulging in removing JP's history, he said.
