I don't aspire to be PM, my mandate is to stay in Bihar:Nitish

"I am an ordinary person. I belong to a poor state. A very ordinary political activist I am. So, I don't aspire for those big things. I only aspire for one thing--that Bihar should grow, should develop. That's all," Nitish told a news channel when asked if he thought he should be Prime Minister in future.

In reply to a question on his achievements making him a worthy claimant from Bihar CM to the post of PM, he said "there may be many people from Bihar who are capable of becoming Prime Minister but so far as I am concerned, I don't think on those terms. And I am serious about it (my answer)."

He said his victory today meant the people wanted him to serve Bihar. "I confine myself to limits of Bihar. That is also the mandate of the people of Bihar," he said.
Nitish Kumar-led JD(U)-BJP alliance in the state stormed back to power in Bihar with a huge victory in the assembly polls. The coalition managed to win more than 206 seats in the 243-member state legislature.
