Rabri Devi calls Nitish Kumar “dishonest and thief”

Campaigning in Bihar Assembly elections reached a new low with former chief minister Rabri Devi on Friday calling Chief Minister Nitish Kumar dishonest and thief.

Nitish Kumar beiman aur chor hai, iske raj ka khatma karna hai (Nitish is dishonest and a thief, his government should be thrown out), Rabri Devi said while castigating Kumar for allegedly forestalling an inquiry into a CAG report that highlighted irregularities in execution of development schemes worth more than Rs 11,400 crore. Instead of allowing the CBI to probe the irregularities, Kumar and his government moved the Patna High Court seeking stay on the probe, she said at a poll rally.

During the Lok Sabha polls too, Rabri Devi had invited criticism and ECs ire for calling Kumar and former JD(U) leader Lallan Singh (brother-in-law) of each other.
