Addressing a massive Swabhimaan Rally in Patna's Gandhi Maidan, Kumar said, "He ( Narendra Modi) said my DNA is bad. Who am I? I am one of you. Today, people of Bihar are collecting samples of their hair and nails and from tomorrow they will be sending it to the Prime Minister's Office for their DNA analysis. My DNA represents a Bihari".
