No honey without beehive: Nitish on Rahul's remark

April 08, 2013 17:41 IST

Apparently referring to Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi's remark that India was a beehive, Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Monday questioned where honey would come from if there was no beehive.

"Madhumakkhi ka chhatta nahin rahega to shahad kahan se ayega (where will honey come from if there is no beehive)," Kumar told reporters in reply to a question.

The chief minister initially sought to ignore a question on Gandhi's 'beehive' remark, but came back to it after replying to a few questions.

The chief minister also said, "Shahad bahut gunkari cheej hota hai aur Bihar mein shahad ka utpadan sabse jyada hota hai (Honey has several positive ingredients and Bihar is the biggest producer of honey)."

The Congress leader had recently made the beehive remark during an address to industrialists.
