You can't in native JIRA. The comments are in a single field in the database.  There may be a plugin that allows it. 

Kindly Let me know the plugin name or link. I am not able to find the plugin.

I said there MAY be one. I'm not aware of one.

You can do this with Better Excel Plugin.

There is actually a pre-configured export type that will list the columns you selected plus the comments per issue.

If I correctly understand you want to export only those comments that were posted while the issue was in a specific status. That is also doable by applying a custom filter (predicate) to the comments collection before exporting that to Excel. The predicate should find out the periods from the issue change history during which "status = YOURSTATUSHERE" and match those periods against the submission date of a comment. 

For scripting please see: http://www.midori-global.com/products/jira-better-excel-plugin/documentation/scripting
