Patna: While the supporters of Nitish Kumar, at the three-day convention of the Janata Dal – U in Rajgir on Monday were busy portraying him as the next Prime Minister of India, Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) national Vice President Raghuvansh Prasad Singh was taking exception to the idea saying such talks undermine the issues being faced by the people of Bihar.
Reacting strongly to the idea of Nitish Kumar being pushed as the 'Prime Ministerial' material, Singh said that such rhetoric by the JD-U leaders did not bode well for the people of Bihar who voted the Grand Alliance into power to resolve issues pertaining to Bihar.
"Such talks are dangerous to the unity of the alliance and will only help the BJP strengthen its position in the state," the senior RJD leader said.
Singh, who has been very critical against the JD-U in the past, said that if each secular party in the nation started to project its leader as the next Prime Minister of India, it would create nothing but problems ultimately helping the BJP.
The RJD leader, who is said to be speaking on behalf of his party chief Lalu Prasad Yadav, said that the JD-U was a very small party and it should worry about its strength in the state before projecting its leader as the Prime Ministerial candidate.BLOG COMMENTS POWERED BY DISQUS
