New Delhi: The removal of posters of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP president Amit Shah in Bihar indicated the inevitability of NDA’s defeat and was done to help them escape responsibility for losing the assembly elections, Congress leader Abhishek Manu Singhvi said on Saturday.
“You have to ask those who took off the posters the reason for this action… it is very clear to anybody who has been in Bihar, to anybody who is following this process closely, that a certain defeat is staring them in the face,” he said here.
The Congress leader said that the removal of posters of the two would help them escape the responsibility of the “disastrous result” as they were the lead campaigners for the Bharatiya Janata Party in the state.
“They have seen the writing on the wall… when you see the writing on the wall, you do not want your own face on the wall because you will then be held responsible as the twin lead campaigners for the disastrous result which is bound to follow,” Singhvi said.
The posters of Modi and Shah were reportedly replaced in boll-bound Bihar with those of state BJP leaders like Sushil Modi, C.P. Thakur and Ashwani Choubey.
According to reports, Modi has cancelled a rally he was scheduled to address on October 20 in the state, besides two rallies on Friday in Hajipur in Vaishali district and Buxar district in the state.
