Minister of state for skill development and entrepreneurship Rajiv Pratap Rudy and senior BJP leader Sushil Kumar Modi on Friday got trolled on Twitter after posting screenshots of a Pakistan media website displaying Bihar CM Nitish Kumar’s election advertisement.
“Which voter is Nitish Kumar trying to woo by placing an ad in the e-paper of Pakistani leading newspaper Dawn?” questioned Modi on the popular social networking site, while Rudy posted asking who Nitish Kumar wanted to reach out to in Pakistan while the campaign advertisement pertained to the ongoing Bihar polls. He later deleted the tweet from his account.

This incident comes a day after BJP President Amit Shah’s comment at a rally in Raxaul, that if the BJP loses in Bihar, Diwali will be celebrated in Pakistan. “If BJP loses Bihar elections even by chance, though victory or defeat will happen in Patna, firecrackers would be burst in Pakistan,” he had said.
