Bihar, Jharkhand are brothers, they don’t need to comment on each other: Nitish Kumar

Bihar’s Chief Minister Nitish Kumar said Monday that both Jharkhand and Bihar belong to the same family.

Mr. Kumar was reacting to his Jharkhand counterpart Hemant Soren, who recently sparked controversy by saying that the two regional languages ​​primarily spoken in Bihar – Bhojpuri and Magahi – “are borrowed languages ​​and the speakers of these languages ​​are dominant people.”

However, Mr. Kumar’s alliance partner, BJP, had called Mr. Soren’s comment “highly objectionable and intended to divide society.”

“You should never think about these things. Bihar and Jharkhand are brothers, they belong to the same family. I don’t know why people say something like that. People from both states do not need to comment on each other. Although Jharkhand was separated from us, we only have love for them, ”Kumar told the media after his weekly show Janata ke durbar mein mukhyamantri (Chief Minister at the People’s Court) ended.

Last week, Mr. Soren also told a private news channel that “the tribal society had fought for a separate state from Jharkhand because of its regional and tribal languages ​​and not because of Bhojpuri or Magahi.” Later, Jharkhand Mukti Morcha (JMM) leader and party spokesman Supriyo Bhattacharya said that his party “supports what the Chief Minister has said.”

Jharkhand was removed from Bihar in November 2000 and Mr. Soren’s JMM had played a key role in the movement for a separate state.
