Nitish Kumar is like 'foreign women' who change boyfriends anytime: BJP National General Secretary |

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) national general secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya on Thursday made sexist and misogynistic remarks against Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and compared him to "foreign women".

Vijayvargiya likened Nitish Kumar to “foreign women” commenting about the Janata Dal (United) leader leaving NDA for the second time.

"When I was travelling abroad, someone there said that women there change their boyfriends at any time. Bihar Chief Minister is also like that. He never knows whose hand he may hold or leave," Vijayvargiya told reporters in Indore.

Nitish Kumar had broken away from the BJP and formed a government with the RJD and other parties earlier this month. The Chief Minister and his deputy, RJD's Tejashwi Yadav' took oath on August 10.

The Bihar Grand Alliance has a combined strength of 163. Its effective strength climbed to 164 after Independent MLA Sumit Kumar Singh extended its support to Nitish Kumar. The new government is likely to prove the majority in the Bihar assembly on August 24.
