Country needs PM with six-inch brain: JD-U’s Bihar leader

Patna : In the wake of the Pathankot terror attack, Bihar’s ruling Janata Dal-United on Monday took a dig at Narendra Modi, saying the country needed a prime minister with a six-inch brain rather than a 56-inch chest.

“Our country does not need a prime minister with a 56-inch chest; what we need is a PM with six-inch brain,” JD-U spokesperson Neeraj Kumar said.

The JD-U leader said the attack on the Indian Air Force base in Pathankot town of Punjab had shocked and saddened the people across the country.

Neeraj said Modi had become an “item boy” of foreign policy.

“It is difficult to understand Modi’s foreign policy. He has become an item boy of foreign policy,” he said.

Neeraj Kumar, considered close to Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, alleged that Modi indulged in sycophancy with his Pakistan counterpart Nawaz Sharif for 120 minutes during his unscheduled visit to Lahore in December.

Addressing a Bharatiya Janata Party rally in Gorakhpur in Uttar Pradesh in January 2014, Modi had talked of 56-inch chest while taking a dig at Mulayam Singh Yadav regarding development of the latter’s state.
