"Since they have failed miserably on economic front after making tall claims during 2014 parliamentary elections, they (BJP and RSS) have triggered an emotional issue (JNU event) to hide the failure," Nitish told reporters after a state cabinet meeting. He also criticised the Centre for levelling sedition charge on JNU student's union president Kanhaiya Kumar, who hails from Bihar, without any evidence.
"If they have any evidence that justifies Kanhaiya Kumar's arrest on sedition charge, why do not they make it public?" he asked, and said that "JNU is on their (BJP and RSS) target because there is negligible percentage of people who believe in saffron ideology". "People of other parties are also nationalist...but they do not require a certificate of nationalism from them (BJP or RSS)," he said.
