“In Ladakh, Congress is down to only five seats while it had won 22 seats last time. When the ice melts in the Himalayas, Bihar feels the cold. Hence the trend from Ladakh will help create an atmosphere in Bihar as well,” Modi said.Attacking Nitish and Lalu for joining hands with Congress, the Prime Minister invoked late Prime Minister Chandra Shekhar, who was popularly called “Yuva Turk”.”While Chandra Shekhar broke his long relation with Congress at the call of JP, these leaders who claim to have the blessings of the Loknayak and do politics in his name joined hands with Congress.”Nitish ji, who had come in politics with the blessings of JP left him and surrendered to Congress for political opportunism. See the difference in the character of these two leaders–Chandra Shekhar and Nitish Kumar.”Chandra Shekar belonged to the adjacent Ballia district in Uttar Pradesh.Modi, who was accused by rivals of cancelling some rallies allegedly fearing a loss for NDA in Bihar polls, said he came now as the third phase of polls is starting in the state after a long festival break.”I have again got an opportunity to come to you. If you give me so much love, I will keep coming here. I will return your love with interest,” he said.The Prime Minister, who has been attacked by the opposition for remembering Bihar only at the time of polls, reminded that he had maintained long back that India will not develop till the eastern part of the country including states like Bihar are developed.advertisementAs part of his campaign blitzkrieg, Modi will address around one and half a dozen rallies for the remaining three phases of polls in the state. The third phase falls on October 28. So far 81 of 243 assembly seats have seen voting in last two phases. PTI AMR DV

‘New (Narendra Modi) government has given a new signal. So they (Pakistan) spoiled the talks, they spoiled the game,’ Swaraj told Indian reporters here after her meeting with the IBSA foreign ministers on the sidelines of the ongoing UN General Assembly session.Swaraj was asked to comment on Pakistan’s national security and foreign affairs adviser Sartaj Aziz’s remarks that talks between the two countries can happen only if New Delhi takes the initiative since India was the one which cancelled the 25 August talks.

As far as our reaction is concerned we have said repeatedly that if a reaction had to come it had to come at this time only. The initiative was there from our side,’ she said.She said it was Indian prime minister Narendra Modi who had invited Pakistani prime minister Nawaz Sharif for his swearing-in ceremony.During the bilateral meeting between the two prime ministers it was discussed that trade should start immediately at the Wagah-Attari border, said Swaraj.

Things began from there,’ she said.‘But before any talks, the ambassador has met with the Hurriyat leaders, that has never happened,’ Swaraj said.
