BJP pulls up JD-U leader on Modi, says 'Bihar will not forgive such remarks'

New Delhi/Patna, Sept 16 : Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Monday criticized Janata Dal United (JD-U) leader Narendra Singh's remarks on Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi, and said that the people of Bihar would not forgive such statements, and would answer them in the elections.

"JD-U is the same party whose leader Bhim Singh made a statement that people join army to die. The Chief Minister of Bihar had to apologize for this. Now Narendra Singh has made a similar statement. When they again come up with the apology letter, people of Bihar are not going to forgive them, and they will answer them in the elections," BJP spokesperson Meenakshi Lekhi said.

Narendra Singh, earlier in the day, mocked Modi's ambition to become the Prime Minister, and said that he has lost his mental balance.

"I think Modi has lost his mental balance. He is flying in the air, daydreaming about becoming the Prime Minister," he said in Patna.

BJP on Friday announced Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi as its prime ministerial candidate for the 2014 general elections.

The announcement came after a meeting of the party's parliamentary board here this evening, which unanimously decided to project Modi as the prime ministerial candidate.

Modi assured his party workers and supporters that he would leave no stone unturned in ensuring that the BJP emerges victorious in the 2014 Lok Sabha polls.
