The Bihar CM then touched the prime minister's feet when they were having a conversation. The incident garnered widespread attention, with the Opposition criticising the move. However, BJP leaders supported saying that the gesture was way to show respect.

Meanwhile, during Friday's parliamentary meeting of the NDA members, Nitish took a jibe at the Opposition saying, "'Agli baar jab aap aaiye toh kuch log jo idhar udhar jeet gaya hai, agli baar sab haarega. Humko poora bharosa hai' (I feel that the next time you (Modi) come back to power, those who have won seats here and there will not any of the seats. I have full faith)."
