It also slammed him for being invited to the event. “Bangalore rolls out the red carpet for CM Nitish Kumar!” The posters also mention boldly about incidents of bridge collapses in Bihar under his regime. “First date of Sultanganj Bridge Collapse – April 2022, Second date of Sultanganj bridge collapse – June 2023.”

Another poster ridiculed him as “Shri Nitish Kumar, the CM, Government of Bihar, the man who builds underwater bridges.” The posters with pictures of Sultanganj bridge collapse were also put up.

Nitish Kumar is one of the prominent leaders taking part in the event and has not reacted to the development.

Commenting on the criticism by former CM Kumaraswamy and BJP on deputing IAS officers to receive alliance leaders, Shivakumar stated, Congress is in power and as per protocol the officers are deputed.

“Even I have received political leaders. Kumaraswamy is waiting for the invitation by the NDA and he is not getting it. He is making the statements to be in news,” he said. — IANS
