Patna (Bihar) [India], Jan 25 (ANI): RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav on Friday hit out at Nitish Kumar over a Bihar minister’s derogatory remark on Priyanka Gandhi.
"Nitish Kumar Ji is running an institute where he trains his ministers to abuse and make excuses, his cabinet ministers and spokespersons are trained there," Tejashwi said while talking to reporters here.
Tejashwi’s comment came after Bihar minister Vinod Narayan Jha, while commenting on Priyanka Gandhi's entry into active politics, said "Priyanka Gandhi is very beautiful, but has no other talent that I can see, neither does she have the political experience."
The 47-year-old was made a general secretary of the Congress, in charge of the party's campaign in eastern Uttar Pradesh for the Lok Sabha election due by May.
According to reports, Bihar’s Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Modi, also took a jibe at Priyanka's formal entry into politics, saying that "the Congress was feeling happy over the induction of a woman with a tainted life partner.” (ANI)
