"He not only in India but also in Pakistan never used to forget to mention that he had quit NDA over 2002 Godhra riots. But he has now joined the BJP and is singing paeans to Narendra Modi the man behind the 2002 massacre," Kumar said at an election rally at Parbatta here.

"Kisi ne eisa palti maar neta kabhi dekha nahi (nobody has seen such an expert leader in doing such sharp somersault)," he said taking a jibe at Paswan.

The Janata Dal (United) leader also took a jibe at Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief Lalu Prasad Yadav.

“He has been saying in his every election meeting that Nitish is no factor in the present Lok Sabha elections. If this is so where is the need for him to take my name everywhere?” he asked.

Accompanied by rebel RJD MLA Samrat Chaudhary, Kumar said the former had made a valid point before the Election Commission as to how Lalu facing conviction in a fodder scam case was heading a political party.

Kumar regretted that the opponent parties were running away from core issues during the campaigns.
