Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar’s JD-U was the first among the opposition parties to lend support to the NDA’s Presidential candidate Ram Nath Kovind, a former Bihar Governor. This came as a major blow to the Opposition.
Days after that, he purportedly said during a party meeting that the Congress alone was to blame for the current mess in the opposition ranks.
Downplaying his comments, Kumar on Monday said that he was not in the race to become the Prime Minister in the 2019 Lok Sabha election and that the state’s ruling Grand Alliance was very much intact.
