Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar on Saturday attacked the UPA government saying that the Congress was synonymous with price rise.


"Congress party ka dusra naam manhgai party hai... jab tak ye log satta mein rahenge manhgai badhti raheji (Congress is synonymous with price rise... till the Congress is in power prices will rise," Kumar told reporters in reply to a question.

On the phone tapping of senior BJP leader Arun Jaitley, he said it was an act by a 'weak' government.

"A weak government always resorts to such tactics," Kumar said, adding it was a violation of privacy.
