PATNA - Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Sushma Swaraj said Thursday that her comments on Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi were misreported.
“I have all regards for Modi bhai. There are no problems with him,” Swaraj told reporters here. She said the media had misreported her remarks on the performance of Modi and his absence from campaign in the ongoing Bihar polls.
Media reports had Wednesday quoted Swaraj as saying in Patna: “Modi’s magic has worked well in Gujarat. It does not mean that every magic would work at every place, nor is it necessary.”
“In Bihar the magic of (Chief Minister) Nitish Kumar and (Deputy Chief Minister) Sushil Modi is working well,” she had said.
Reports later said that BJP president Nitin Gadkari had directed Swaraj to clarify her remarks on Narendra Modi.
