Patna: Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar wants BJP to declare categorically that Narendra Modi won’t be a candidate to the Prime Minister Ship. This should be declared publicly by the BJP. Instead, a secret understanding won’t do, said Nitish Kumar. He was answering the questions from the media reporters after quitting the NDA alliance.
Negotiations are on, from all corners to come to a settlement with Nitish Kumar. In the meanwhile BJP leaders didn’t attend the meeting called by Nitish Kumar after leaving the NDA alliance. Nitish had invited Deputy Chief Minister Susheel Modi and other senior leaders for discussion.
BJP leader and NDA convener in Bihar Nandakishore said that they were called for discussions regarding the ending of the alliance. But this does not come under our jurisdiction. So we decided not to attend this meeting, said he.
Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar said there are certain problems, in continuing the alliance with the BJP. When asked about the request from BJP to continue the alliance he said they are praying for the long life and at the same time injecting poison to kill it.
Nitish Kumar is adamant on the stand that Modi can’t be the Prime Ministerial candidate for the next Lok Sabha poll. BJP must be prepared to clear our apprehension about this. The Prime Ministererial candidate should be a secular man. For this very reason we can’t approve Modi’s candidature, he added.
The JDU Chairman Sharad Yadav denied having received an ultimatum to come to a final decision about the Prime Ministerial candidate within days. It’s definitely an internal affair of BJP to give the responsibility of election propaganda to Modi. But the aftermath of this decision is against the agenda of the NDA, said Sharad.
