Congress alone is to blame for the opposition mess - Nitish Kumar

Nitish Kumar endorsing the GST launch party was being interpreted as disharmony in the opposition alliance which the Congress has dismissed

Analysts say that Kumar is trying to carve a leadership space for himself in the opposition.

"I do not follow others, I follow my own policies", the CM told party workers during the state executive meeting of the JD (U).

Nitish Kumar also downplayed his earlier comments holding the Congress responsible for the "current mess" in the opposition ranks.

Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Monday declared 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.

We have always supported GST.

Political events around the upcoming Presidential poll issue pushed the farmers' issue far back. Union Minister and Republican Party of India (RPI) leader Ramdas Athawale had yesterday took a jibe at the Congress saying it was using Kumar as a "scapegoat" by fielding her as the opposition candidate in the July 17 presidential election. "At a function, in the presence of Mr Chidambaram and Rahul Gandhi, I had asked the Congress to take the lead".

"We can not take our eyes off either flood or drought so we must prepare for both to minimize their impact on life, cattle, or properties", the Chief Minister said.

The JD (U) president, who asked the opposition to move beyond "reactive narratives", also dispelled fears about fissures in Bihar's Grand Alliance and said the government would fulfill its commitment in time by implementing the "seven resolves" of good governance.

Although his action of supporting the NDA's presidential candidate Ram Nath Kovind (Bihar's former Governor) has caused some distress in the "Mahagathbandhan". Speaking on the issue of participation in RJD's "BJP Hatao, Desh Bachao" rally Nitish said he has only received informal invitation for the same. On the leader of the opposition's Ghulam Nabi Azad's statement that he has multiple ideologies he said that " "Some people have different ideologies. I am taking up your fight also.you want me to withdraw?

Senior JD-U leader and Bihar Energy Minister Bijender Prasad Yadav will attend the special session of Parliament on Friday midnight.

During the meeting, Kumar did not refer to the BJP or Prime Minister and his policies. We were not even aware of their castes.
