The JD (U) President and Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar said, no leader in the country is capable of beating Prime Minister Narendra Modi at Present.
Talking to reporters in Patna today, Nitish Kumar said that Modi is set to win in 2019 general elections.
He said, joining hands with BJP was not pre-planned.
Kumar added that the BJP only approached JD(U) after he resigned as Chief Minister.
The Chief Minister said that he doesn’t have any national ambition, adding that there is no other leader of Narendra Modi’s stature in the country. Nitish Kumar said, people in JDU were frustrated with grand alliance and now, party units are happy with the decision to join BJP led NDA.
Kumar said, the RJD made objectionable statements against grand alliance, however no leader from JD(U) said anything against RJD’s supreme leader. He said, his party will continue to support Gopal Krishna Gandhi for Vice Presidential election and BJP doesn’t have any problem with that.
