Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Monday criticised the election strategy adopted by the Congress in Gujarat and said the party was "veering towards extremism". The talks of Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi being a "janeu-dhari Hindu" (one who wears the sacred thread) and the deliberate sidelining of top leaders like Ahmed Patel indicate a worrying trend in the grand old party, Kumar told reporters on the sidelines of his weekly 'Lok Samvad' programme.
"These trends show the party is veering towards extremism in its quest for votes. This is something it has always accused the BJP of," he said.
