BJP wrongly defending Swaraj: Bihar CM

Patna, June 15 (IANS) Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Monday targeted the BJP over the issue involving External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj by saying that it was wrongly defending her.

“BJP has been wrongly defending its leaders. It has exposed the work culture and mindset of the party,” Kumar told media persons here.

Swaraj admitted to having helped disgraced former IPL chief Lalit Modi procure documents to travel to Portugal last July.

He said it was wrong to justify the way Swaraj misused her post to facilitate a travel visa for Modi.

“It should not be justified as BJP leaders have been doing,” Kumar said.

Swaraj said that she helped Modi on “humanitarian grounds” but the Congress demanded her resignation for “gross impropriety”.

“Swaraj’s episode has brought the real face of the Narendra Modi government before the people of the country. BJP leaders have been doing everything to protect her despite the fact that laws were broken by her,” the minister said.

He said BJP leaders have become arrogant and are not ready to accept their wrongs and mistakes.


  1. The BJP has no time to rule, but now forced to the new calling of ” defending ministry of the party leaders”. They can’t hide the truth for ever.

  2. Why the BJP is not stretching an helping hand through defending the Rajastan Chief Minister involved with the same issue?
    Indeed, it shows the real sincerity and the spirit of discrimination of the party.
