Modi and Nitish are like cousins: Lalu

Patna: RJD supremo Lalu Prasad on Saturday said Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi and his Bihar counterpart Nitish Kumar are like "cousins" on communal issues.

"Both Modi and Kumar are like cousin brothers in relation to communal matters," Prasad told reporters here. He made this sarcastic remark when his attention was drawn to media reports suggesting that the international Time magazine report, under compilation now, will be presenting Modi and Prasad among top four influential personalities in India. "Both Modi and Kumar are holding communal flags," Lalu alleged.
