"I had said that if they [the Central government] give Bihar a special status, then we will support Prime Minister Modi. Let them meet our demands first, only then will they see the difference," Manjhi told the media.
"Because I made the statement yesterday, they think that we have already given my support. We have not done so - first they have to meet our demands regarding the special status and the other topics I stressed on yesterday. How can we do anything today?" he added.
On Saturday, Manjhi had said that he will become a supporter of Prime Minister Modi if the Central government agrees to give his state special status.
"If he [Prime Minister Modi] fulfils his commitment to provide special category status to Bihar and clears our other demands like reimbursing the money spent by the state government to repair the national highway, I will become his supporter," Manjhi said.
