Patna, Jul 3 (TheBiharPost/IBNS): Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar on Monday categorically ruled himself out of the race to become the prime minister, saying he doesn’t have any such aspiration.

“I am not the face of the opposition nor I have any aspiration or capability to become the Prime Minister,” Kumar told the media on Monday on the sidelines of his weekly people’s interaction programme.

Talking about opposition unity, Kumar said Congress being the big party must set the alternative agenda to take on the BJP in the coming Lok sabha polls.

“The Opposition must have an agenda and the Congress is a big party. It is its job to set the agenda, an alternative narrative, a narrative that isn’t reactive,” Kumar was quoted as saying  by the Times of India.

“Alternative politics is demand of the time,” he added.

Kumar further expressed concern over the way politics crept into presidential elections which pushed to the background the issues of the farmers.

Incidentally,  Kumar’s JD-U has supported NDA’s presidential candidate Ram Nath Kovind against Bihar-born Meira Kumar fielded by the opposition.

But Kumar claims his support is not to any party but an “individual” who maintained very good relations with the state government and and never hot involved in any controversy.
