"Nitish Kumar has harmed (the state) more than Lalu Prasad and is hence a bigger culprit. He derailed a speeding train by snapping ties with BJP without a valid reason whereas Lalu Prasad's RJD had derailed only a stationary train," Sushil Modi told a private TV channel.
"Bihar was speeding fast on the path of development during NDA rule but you (Nitish Kumar) derailed the speeding train in the name Narendra Modi after he was made Prime Ministerial candidate of the BJP," said Sushil Modi, who was deputy chief minister during NDA rule in the state,
Prasad had shaken a little a stationary train it had inherited from Congress in 1990," said Sushil Modi, who was leader of opposition during RJD rule.
Asked as why BJP-led NDA was not declaring its candidate for chief minister's post when the secular alliance has already named Nitish Kumar, Sushil Modi, who is rated as a frontrunner for it, said the decision would be taken by the party's Parliamentary board.
"In any case we have a captain in Prime Minister Narendra Modi for Bihar elections. So how can it be said that our team is without a captain?" he said.
