Bihar chief minister chief minister Nitish Kumar has taken to social media to hit at prime minister Narendra Modi on facts and promises. Not to be left behind in the virtual world, his alliance partner Lalu Prasad Yadav asked the PM not to mislead "innocent" Biharis by telling more lies.

"Modiji was always unmatched in theatrics, rhetoric and using unsubstantiated facts. Now tactical silence is his new weapon of choice," Nitish said in a series of tweets as Modi addressed election rallies on Sunday. "The saga continues, so let us brace ourselves for a repeat performance in Bihar," Nitish said referring to Modi's rhetorical skills.

In another tweet, the Bihar CM questioned Modi for his silence on promises like bringing back black money from abroad, hike in MSP for farmers, employment for youths, special status for Bihar among others and charged the PM with forgetting all those promises he had made during the 2014 Lok Sabha election. "No words on promises he made and then conveniently forgot - black money, farmer MSP, youth employment, special status for Bihar - lists goes on," he said.

"For someone who doesn't miss an opportunity to talk or tweet on literally anything, it is baffling that Modiji doesn't speak a word on issues that exhort the collective conscience of the country or bother the common masses... No words on gruesome killing of dalit children in Haryana, mob lynching in Dadri or skyrocketing prices of dal," Nitish said.

In the same mocking tone RJD chief Lalu Prasad asked Modi not to mislead "innocent" Biharis. "Modi Ji, before opening ur (your) mouth to mislead innocent Biharis by fabricating further lies luk (look) at the mirror for unfulfilled promises since 2014," Lalu said in his tweet.

The RJD chief also asked Modi to fulfil the promises he had made during the last Lok Sabha polls before announcing more new 'jumlas'. "Bhashanbazi chhod yatharth ke dharatal par uttarkar jwanlant muddon ka hal karo (Stop lecturing us and take steps to solve burning issues by stepping down on the surface of reality)," Lalu told Modi.
