Patna: Faced by criticism for allegedly moving his eyes from Bihar to Delhi in his quest to 'dethrone' Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Sunday sought to clear the air saying he was not a claimant to the PM's post nor was he interested in leading an anti-Sangh front on a national level.

Talking to reporters after meeting with his fans and admirers for most of the day who made a beeline to congratulate Kumar for becoming the President of the Janata Dal – U, the Chief Minister said that neither did he aspire to become the Prime Minister of India nor he had any desire to lead the anti-Sangh force.

"I just want to play the role of a catalyst and let others take up the responsibility to lead the movement to free India from the communal forces like the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS). As far as becoming the Prime Minister of India is concerned, it all depends on the destiny," the JD-U chief said.

"If one is destined to become the Prime Minister of India, no one can stop him otherwise you could try for the next seven lives and yet, you will never be elected to the PM's post," Kumar said.
