Nitish attracts Namo ire in ‘Red zone’.

Narendra Modi’s oratory skills was never in doubt, and in his first attempt to win over the tribals of Jagdalpur, in the Baster district of Chhattisgarh, he made full use of it. It was the first time that the Gujarat Chief Minister ventured into the Maoist hotbed of southern Chhattisgarh, after he was declared the BJP’s prime ministerial candidate.

Modi exhorted the tribals to vote for the BJP in the forthcoming Assembly elections in Chhattisgarh and lashed out at the Congress for claiming to introduce the food security scheme. He praised the Chhattisgarh Chief Minister, Raman Singh, for introducing schemes to ensure food for the poor and the destitute in Chhattisgarh, way before the UPA government enacted the Food Security Act at the Centre.

Modi drew comparisons between Raman Singh and his Bihar counterpart Nitish Kumar and denounced the latter for not instituting an investigation into the BJP’s ‘ Hunkar’ rally blasts in Patna. He tore into Nitish Kumar for terming blasts as ‘normal’ and accused him of having a gala time with his party colleagues in Rajgir when the serial blasts took place.

While lauding Raman Singh’s attitude in the aftermath of the Maoist attack that claimed the lives of Congress leaders, he condemned Nitish Kumar for turning a blind eye towards the plight of the families who have lost their loved ones in the Patna blast.
