With arch rivals contending to establish their feet in Bihar, social media platforms have become an easy bait for both Nitish Kumar and Narendra Modi to unravel their plans for the state and their persistent digs at each other. Narendra Modi being a cock-a-hoop political twitterati has managed to scoop the best out of the social media platform till this date; whereas, the vanguard of Bihar Asmita, Nitish Kumar, is still lagging behind with less than 60,000 followers in his pocket.

However, debunking his lacklustre twitter account, Nitish Kumar is all game for the real battle to begin. Toeing on the lines of his adversary, the JD(U) leader had a tete-a-tete with journalists across the board on twitter yesterday.

While scrolling through the string of tweets thronging the leader’s account one might get an inkling of his intent of getting back at Narendra Modi for his DNA jibe. Moreover, it seems that leader is full of vengeance and the assembly election triumph might render him the coveted solace.

Important issues discussed in the  Twitter tete-a-tete
