PATNA: Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar on Saturday expressed concern over raising of flags of terror group ISIS and Pakistan in Jammu & Kashmir and referring to Prime Minister Narendra Modi asked “what happened to his 56-inch chest.”
“The person who had boasted of having 56-inch chest is in power in Delhi when flags of ISIS and Pakistan are being hoisted in Jammu & Kashmir. What happened to his 56-inch chest? What happened to the person who used to utter such tall talks?” Kumar asked.
Modi, as BJP’s prime ministerial candidate in January last year had said it required a 56-inch chest to make a Gujarat.
Kumar said raising of ISIS and Pakistan flags in at least two places in Kashmir on Friday is a matter of concern.
Kumar also charged the BJP with compromising the ideology of Shyama Prasad Mukherjee for forming a coalition government in Jammu & Kashmir with PDP.
To a question on his protege turned detractor Jitan Ram Manjhi joining hands with BJP, Kumar refused to make any comment.
