Reiterating his stance, Bihar Chief Minister on Saturday praised Narendra Modi government’s demonetisation drive calling it a ‘good decision’. “People are in trouble, but they feel that rich’s money is drowning,” he said at HT leader’s summit. “There are different ways of looking at demonetisation, if it’s really a surgical strike on corruption, as said by the BJP, then they will have to proceed further, they have to hit Benami,” he added. Speaking on Mamata Banerjee’s traitor remarks, he said that anyone can call him anything. Here’s a Tweet by NDTV where the Bihar CM can be seen making the comments.

“Anyone can call me anything, what can I do about it? But one thing is sure, too much aggression affects people perception in democracy and perception matters alot in democracy,” he said.

Upset with Nitish Kumar for not backing her campaign against demonetisation, Mamata had hit-out at her Bihar counterpart on Wednesday, saying “gaddari karne walon ko nahin chhodenge (betrayers will not be spared)”.

Speaking at a dharna in Patna, Banerjee had attacked Nitish Kumar without naming him. On the other hand, Nitish’s trenchant support for demonetisation drive has surprised many including his allies. Even the RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav has reportedly now come along with Nitish Kumar on the demonetiation scheme after discussions with the Bihar CM.
