PATNA: There is another bad news for Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar.
The Congress party after initially showing its love for Kumar has now officially declared it has now plans to invite the chief minister into the Grand Alliance.
“There are no talks with JD-U at any level to woo Kumar back,” Congress’ Bihar in-charge Shaktisinh Gohil told the Hindustan Times today.
Gohil added, “Our alliance is with Lalu Prasad-led RJD and Jitan Ram Manjhi-led HAM in Bihar and we are sticking to it.”
He said the Congress legislature party leader Sadanand Singh has been told to convey the party high command message to all party lawmakers.
The ‘clarification’ assumes significance amid the RJD opposing Kumar’s entry to the Grand Alliance.
Both sons of RJD chief Prasad—Tejashwi Yadav and Tej Pratap Yadav—had opposed Kumar’s entry bids to the GA tooth and nail even as a section of Congress leaders extended open invitation to the chief minister.
While Tejashwi said the door of the RJD is now closed for him, his elder brother Tej Pratap went to the extent of issuing “No Entry” notice for Kumar.
