Sharad calls Nitish faltu (useless)
After using foul languages against Rahul Gandhi, the Janata Dal (United) president Sharad Yadav’s attacked his own party man and the chief minister, Nitish Kumar, saying he is a faltu (useless) person.
Addressing an election rally at Garua Vishnupur High School ground under Marhaura assembly constituency of Saran district he said Yeh dono Lalu aur Nitish vikas ki baten karte hain. Lalu, Nitish faltu hain. (Both Lalu and Nitish talk about development. They both are useless persons). Hum theek hain (I am fine).
Saran goes to poll on Thursday. Yadav later denied his remarks. Jo chunav lad rahe hain, ye Nitish, Lalu, Aaalu sab faltu hain, was a slip of the tongue. He couldn’t have meant Nitish as “he is the CM and top JD(U) leader,” was how he clarified.
While the Janata Dal (United) and the BJP strongly defended his remarks against Rahul Gandhi the party’s national spokesman, Shivanand Tiwari ducked the question by simply saying that he is yet to confirm his remarks. “I still can’t believe he used such language against his own CM,” he said.
