Samajwadi Party supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav has declared that Nitish Kumar will be the Chief Ministerial candidate of the JD(U)-RJD combine in Bihar. The decision comes at a time when there were uncertainties cropping up within the alliance and there seemed to be no headway or strategy as per as the plans regarding taking BJP in the Bihar elections were concerned.
“I am very happy about the unity of Lalu Prasad and Nitish Kumar. Kumar will be the chief ministerial candidate for Bihar. Laluji has proposed Nitish Kumar’s name for the chief ministership. Laluji said he will campaign. “There are no differences and we will not allow any differences to crop up,” Yadav said while declaring that they would fight together to uproot the “communal forces”.
Mulayam Singh Yadav disclosed the decision at a press conference which was also attended by RJD president Lalu Prasad Yadav and JD(U) chief Sharad Yadav.
