The ‘DNA of Nitish’ prevailed in the Bihar Council, but in a lighter vein

News Tech: Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s infamous ”DNA” jibe came back to haunt Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Thursday in course of a convivial discussion inside the legislative council.

”The CM has established that it is in the DNA of Bihar to switch sides,” said Samrat Chaudhary, BJP MLC and a former minister who has become the Leader of the Opposition in the Upper House.

The ambience, though, was a far cry from the acrimony that had characterised the 2015 assembly poll campaign when Modi went all guns blazing but failed to secure a victory for the BJP-led NDA.

”Tejashwi (deputy CM) is like my younger brother. I want to warn him that he may end up suffering our fate,” said the BJP leader.

The candour seemed a tad too embarrassing as Vijay Kumar Chaudhary, minister and fellow JD(U) MLC, rose in his seat for a rejoinder.

”I would like to add that while Gaus sahib may be right in pointing out the propensity of socialists to quarrel, our new alliance is going to be durable,” said Chaudhary. Samrat Chaudhary, whose father Shakuni Chaudhary was an old associate of Nitish Kumar, said, ”We have been victims of the CM’s unpredictable ways for two generations.” Vijay Chaudhary, whose penchant for poetry is well known, retorted, ”From this dal (party) to that dal, you have ended up in daldal (marsh)”.

The BJP MLC countered, ”Lotus will bloom in the marsh in 2024 and 2025,” a colorful assertion of his party’s prospects in the next Lok Sabha and assembly polls. Things ended on a light note as the chairman asked the next Speaker to take over, with the remark, ”Today is not meant for a day of debate. Let us keep it for another day.” PTI NAC ACD ACD
