Patna - Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Monday hit back at Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi over his 'festering caste politics' remarks, saying people should think about their own situations before preaching to others.
"People should think about their own situations. Bihar has overcome all shortcomings and obstacles and is on the path of progress. We don't comment on others," he told media here.
Modi had earlier on Sunday blamed the 'festering caste politics' in Bihar as the main reason for that state's backwardness.
"Bihar, at one point of time, was a political and spiritual leader of the country, but it slipped into socio-economical backwardness ever since casteist leadership took centrestage," he said, while speaking at a meeting of the BJP state executive in Rajkot.
