The two who buried their hatchet to come together for Bihar polls targeted BJP and showed bonhomie among them. Earlier on two occasions, despite being scheduled, both the leaders failed to share dais as Nitish Kumar skipped the functions apparently against RJD creating roadblocks in process of merger and later tie-up for Bihar elections.

Nitish Kumar hit out at BJP and called it 'worst practitioner' of caste politics in the country. "While BJP accuses us of being 'casteist', the fact is that BJP's politics is centred on caste and to gain votes it's sparing no effort to organise caste based meetings and conventions," Kumar said.

Kumar, who drove JD(U) to sever ties with BJP on June 16, 2013 over elevation of Narendra Modi as BJP's Prime Ministerial candidate, made a mockery of BJP's claiming 'share' in the good governance in the state since 2005 when NDA came to power in Bihar.

"They are claiming share in good works even in ministries which were not with BJP ministers," Kumar added mocking the claim. Kumar alleged BJP is trying to whip 'communal frenzy' with an aim to derive votes of majority section which was dangerous for the country.
