SITAMARHI, Oct 27 : Hitting back at Nitish Kumar, who yesterday mouthed a limerick set to a film song to attack him, Prime Minister Narendra Modi today likened JD(U)-RJD-Congress alliance to "three idiots", advised the Chief Minister to perfect the art of "Mushaira" and practise it at leisure after the Bihar polls.
"I have been noticing that Laluji entertains well and Bihar is getting some entertainment after many years. But these days there is an intense rivalry going on between Laluji and Nitishji on many issues--protecting the criminals, doing nepotism, breaking off from truth. Now the competition is also in the field of entertainment.
"Yesterday, I saw Nitishji doing some Mushaira. He felt that he will call some courtiers and journalists, recite poems and defeat Lalu by starting a new form of entertainment. I knew there are three partners in the grand alliance--Congress RJD and JD(U).
But I wonder why Nitish Babu chose a song from the film Three Idiots for his first Mushaira. Even if you wanted to parody a poem why did you think of the Three Idiots," Modi said addressing a rally in Sitamarhi.
Kumar, the grand alliance's chief ministerial candidate, had yesterday mocked Modi for not keeping promises and his frequent trips abroad using a song from Bollywood blockbuster 'Three Idiots'.
Meanwhile, after a brief festival break, the high voltage fight between the Grand Secular Alliance and the NDA returns to Bihar with the third phase of voting on 50 Assembly seats on Wednesday. ?PTI
