New Delhi: A video clip showing Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar visiting a tantrik to seek his blessings was released by the BJP on Saturday.

The video clip was released on social media by senior Bharatiya Janata Party leader and union Minister Giriraj Singh to embarrass Nitish Kumar, the chief ministerial candidate of the grand alliance of JD-U, RJD and Congress ahead of the October 28 polls in the ongoing five-phase elections.

At a time when the political temperature is hotting up ahead of the third phase of the Bihar assembly polls, the BJP leader played a video card against Nitish Kumar, the star campaigner of the grand alliance, which is giving a tough time to the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance.

In Singh’s video, the tantrik is seen raising slogans in favour of Nitish Kumar and telling him not to be worried. He is also seen raising slogans against Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief Lalu Prasad, once the arch rival of Nitish Kumar but now his main political ally in the Bihar polls.

Reacting to the video, Lalu Prasad, the former Bihar chief minister, told media here that he was a bigger tantrik than anyone. “I don’t care for such tantrik, I am bigger tantrik than any one.”

Neither Nitish Kumar nor any leader of his party was willing to react to the video which has reportedly gone viral on social media.

A senior JD-U leader, on condition of anonymity, told IANS here that the video has once again exposed the BJP’s desperation with reports coming that the grand alliance is winning the polls under the leadership of Nitish Kumar.

BJP President Amit Shah on Sunday said that the controversial Citizenship (Amendment) Bill was “very necessary” and added that the government was working on building a consensus with stakeholders in the northeast.

Addressing the media here, Amit Shah also said that the government had brought the bill after much thought and Home Minister Rajnath Singh was holding consultations with various people to address the opposition to the issue.

“There are two sides of a coin. There are decisions that some like and some don’t… The fate of huge number of refugees can’t be kept hanging in the balance and we are firm on it,” he said.

Asked what would be the BJP’s stand if suggestions come to withdraw the Bill as it has created unrest in the entire northeast, Amit Shah said: “Home Minister is holding discussions with political parties. Discussion with some parties have already taken place. If consensus emerges, we will definitely move ahead but the Citizenship Bill is highly necessary for the country.”

The Bill seeks to grant Indian citizenship to Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists, Jains, Parsis and Christians from Afghanistan, Bangladesh and Pakistan who entered India before December 31, 2014.
