New Delhi: After LK Advani's controversial remark which said that 2014 elections may see a non Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) and a non Congress Prime Minister, its the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat that has come up with a mind boggling comment as he rated Bihar ahead of Gujarat in terms of performance, taking many by surprise in BJP as the Nitish Kumar vs Narendra Modi debate heats up.
The remark came up while Bhagwat was having an interaction with foreign correspondents and was asked the question that which state in India can be considered a role model for good governance. The answer to the question took many by surprise as the RSS chief pointed at Bihar ahead of Gujarat.
As per reports, Bhagwat said that "Bihar, Gujarat, Chhattisgarh to some extent, MP to some extent, some parts of Maharashtra," can be considered as the states with the required merits. When he was specifically asked that why Bihar first then he responded by saying that "aisa log kahte hain(this is what people say)."
On the other hand when asked about the reaction of the party on this comment, RSS spokesman Manmohan Vaidya merely said, "the story about Shri Mohanji Bhagwat doing rounds in media today is totally false." Now with the 2014 election approaching, the classic revelry between the two political stalwarts increase with the judge of the competition being the people of the country who will caste their votes in 2014.
