"Nitish Kumar's letter to the Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley is nothing but an attempt to mislead the people of Bihar on the special package of Rs 1.65 crore (Rs 1.25 lakh crore package announced in recent Bihar rally in addition to Rs 40657 crore announced previously) announced by the Prime Minister for the poll-bound state," he said in a statement.
    
Castigating the Chief Minister for his negative attitude towards the Centre by trashing the special package, the former deputy chief minister said that it was clear from the senior JD(U) leader's attitude that development of Bihar was not possible till such a government comes to power in the state which could work in tandem with the Central government.
    
The BJP leader also alleged that the Chief Minister was running down the special package for Bihar after getting hassled with the Prime Minister's five-time visit to the state recently.
    
Kumar used to charge Modi with forgetting Bihar by not visiting it even once after coming to power at the Centre in May last year, but once the Prime Minister started coming over regularly in recent months, the Chief Minister has got hassled and was trying to run down the special package, he said.
