Patna: Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Thursday criticised the Modi government after Uttarakhand High Court quashed the order of that had put the state under President’s Rule.

“This is a very important verdict, what was done in Uttarakhand was against the constitution. The BJP can’t tolerate other party’s rule, they will do anything to dismantle those governments,” Nitish told the media here.
