What did Giriraj say about leaders who attended 'Iftar' party?
In a tweet, Giriraj had taken a swipe at CM Kumar, Modi, Paswan and other leaders who were seen at an "Iftar" party.
The Union minister posted a tweet in Hindi, saying, "How beautiful would this picture have been if a Navratri meal would have been organized with the same eagerness. Why do we hold back on our own faith and get into pretense."
CM Kumar's response
Giriraj Singh makes such remarks deliberately: CM Kumar
Meanwhile, responding to Giriraj's remarks, CM Kumar said, "Giriraj Singh makes such remarks deliberately so that you (media) make news out of it." The Bihar CM was talking to reporters over the matter.
Giriraj's comments came even as Kumar was already upset over his party Janata Dal (United) being denied more than one cabinet seat in PM Modi's government.

Take part in Holi programs too, not just Iftar: Modi
Giriraj's BJP colleague and Bihar Deputy CM, Modi, also responded sharply, saying, "I don't know what he tweeted. Let me say, I am proud to be a Hindu. I take part in Holi programs too, not just Iftar."
"I have been a part of Iftar celebrations for 25 years. People who never hosted a Holi Milan party are raising questions today," he said.
