‘Wish Modi becomes CM again’: Nitish Kumar goofs up at poll rally | WATCH

Bihar CM Nitish Kumar's frequent slips of the tongue have become a focal point amid the Lok Sabha Elections. His recent blunders, including referring to PM Modi as a potential Chief Minister and mistakenly invoking the late Ram Vilas Paswan during a campaign, have drawn significant criticism.

Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar's repeated 'slip of tongue' instances have been drawing significant attention amid the Lok Sabha Elections 2024. Following the flub where he mentioned "four thousand seats for the NDA," for which he has been consistently targeted by the opposition, the Bihar Chief Minister on Sunday erroneously stated that "Narendra Modi will become Chief Minister once again."

During an election rally in Patna, the senior Janata Dal (United) leader inadvertently commented, "We wish to win over 400 seats across India and respected Narendra Modi should become Chief Minister again. Then India will develop, Bihar will develop, everything will happen," Kumar was heard saying.

Meanwhile, as soon as the other leaders on the dias realized the mistakes, they corrected the Chief Minister. Correcting his error, Kumar added, "Narendra Modi is already the Prime Minister. I am saying that he will now move ahead. That is what I want."

"Narendra Modi Pradhan Mantri toh hai he. Hum toh keh rahe hai ki woh aage badhe. Hum yahi chahte hai (Narendra Modi is already the Prime Minister. I am saying that he will now move ahead. That is what I want)," Kumar clarified.

This recent gaffe followed another instance a week prior, during which Kumar mistakenly called on people to vote for the late Ram Vilas Paswan, the former President of the undivided Lok Janshakti Party (LJP), instead of his son, Chirag Paswan. The Chief Minister was campaigning in Bihar for junior Paswan, who is contesting from the Hajipur seat as an NDA ally.

"Bihar ka koi bhi kaam peeche nahi rahega, har tarah se hoga, isliye toh hum log kehne aaye hai ki bhai Ram Vilas ji ko dijiye, ek baari (No work of Bihar will be left behind, it will be done in every way. That is why we have come to say that please vote for Ram Vilas Paswan)," Kumar mistakenly said.

Quickly correcting himself, he then appealed for votes for Chirag Paswan, "Ram Vilas ji ke putra ko aap dijiye, Chirag Paswan ji ko (Please vote for Ram Vilas Paswan's son Chirag Paswan)."

Meanwhile, in other news, Prime Minister Narendra Modi's stern 'mujra' jibe aimed at the opposition during a rally in Bihar on Saturday, May 25, has provoked a strong backlash from opposition leaders. While, RJD leader and former Bihar Deputy Chief Minister Tejashwi Yadav responded on Sunday by writing a letter to PM Modi, accusing him of making baseless and false statements to the public, Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge criticized PM Modi for the language he used. He stated, "It is an insult to the people of Bihar. It is very bad and he should not use such language. No one likes such things."
