Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar has sparked curiosity and bewilderment among journalists after an unexpected incident in Patna. As reporters questioned him about his recent reluctance to engage with the media, Nitish Kumar, on November 14, bowed down with folded hands in response. The incident occurred as the Chief Minister was leaving after paying tributes to former Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru on his birth anniversary.
This surprising gesture follows Kumar's recent controversial remarks in the Bihar assembly on sex education and family planning, which had already drawn criticism.
In a function organized on Nehru's anniversary, journalists queried, "kahe naraaz hain sir" (Why or Are You Upset With Us). In response, the Janata Dal (United) leader and Bihar CM bowed at his hips with folded hands before swiftly departing. Nitish Kumar has been under scrutiny for his recent outbursts and controversial statements, leading to speculation about his behavior and fitness for office.
