Row as JD(U) says ‘Nitish Kumar is PM material’ | India News

PATNA: A day after JD(U) chief Rajiv Ranjan Singh alias Lalan said Bihar CM Nitish Kumar is PM material though he is not in the race for the post, his party’s parliamentary board president Upendra Kushwaha repeated this claim on Monday and said their “intention was not to upset anyone.” Lalan had made this statement in Patna on Sunday.
JD(U)’s Nalanda MP Kaushlendra Kumar even offered his seat to Nitish so that he could contest the next Lok Sabha polls. He cited the example of Narendra Modi, saying he too was the chief minister of Gujarat before becoming the PM.
BJP cautioned its alliance partner on the issue. “People decide who they want as their PM. Let me make it clear — there is no vacancy for this post in the near future,” the party’s state spokesperson Prem Ranjan Patel said.
