Patna, July 30 (IANS) The Bharatiya Janata Party has removed Ram Kishore Singh as its Bihar spokesperson Tuesday, a day after he questioned Narendra Modi's popularity and his development model.
State BJP president Mangal Pandey removed Ram Kishore Singh following action demanded by some party leaders, including former minister Giriraj Singh, who is a vocal supporter of the Gujarat chief minister.
"Party has also issued a show-cause notice to Singh in this connection," Pandey said.
While negating Modi's claim on development, Ram Kishore Singh Monday praised Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar for inclusive growth of the state.
"Modi's so-called appeal will be exposed in the 2014 Lok Sabha polls. It will not be possible for the BJP to reach the magic number of 273 with allies Shiv Sena and Akali Dal. If it happens, it will be a miracle," he said.
He said that barring the Nano car project, the Modi government had done nothing substantial. He added Keshubhai Patel and other chief ministers had carried out development works in Gujarat.
