NDA’s PM candidate should be from BJP: Nitish Kumar

Patna: Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar Monday said only a Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader will be the National Democratic Alliance’s (NDA) prime ministerial candidate for the 2014 Lok Sabha elections.

Nitish and Modi“A BJP leader will be the NDA’s prime ministerial candidate,” Nitish Kumar said here.

A day after the BJP ruled out the possibility of Nitish Kumar becoming the NDA’s prime ministerial candidate, he said he was never a contender for the post.

Nitish Kumar refused to comment on Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi as the party’s prime ministerial candidate.

Earlier, he and his party, the Janata Dal-United, had expressed strong reservations about Modi as the BJP’s prime ministerial candidate.

Nitish Kumar had said earlier that it would not take a minute for his party to break ties with the BJP if the latter projected Modi as its prime ministerial candidate.

He had also objected to his photographs with Modi in newspaper advertisements during the BJP national executive meeting in Patna in June 2010.
