BJP has left no stone unturned to address grievances: Sushil Modi

Sushil Modi said, "BJP did not leave any stone unturned to address the grievance. Twice Dharmendra Pradhan came to Patna and asked Nitish ji if there was any problem. A day before the fall of the government, a big leader of our party called from Delhi and asked that Nitish is all right, isn't he? So he said - everything is fine. Later those leaders asked whether Lalan Singh's statement was seen on TV. So Nitish ji replied to him that there is Giriraj in your party, so is Lalan Singh. There was an attempt to break JDU. This is a false allegation. We have not broken any party till date. We made Nitish ji the CM of Bihar five times.
