Lalu backs Nitish for PM

 The RJD President Lalu Prasad On Wednesday backed Nitish Kumar on his call for unity among all non-BJP outfits and said his party would support the JD(U) chief for the post of prime minister in future.

“He is speaking right,” Prasad told reporters here when asked to comment on Kumar’s appeal for a wider opposition unity to defeat the BJP and make a “Sangh-mukt” Bharat.
“To defeat the nefarious ideology of RSS and BJP everybody has to unite,” he said before leaving for Delhi.

RJD is a partner in Bihar’s ruling alliance.
Kumar, who replaced Sharad Yadav as JD(U) president, had recently emphasised on coming together of Congress, Left and regional parties to defeat BJP in the 2019 Lok Sabha polls.

On Tuesday again he called for a “Sangh-mukt” Bharat appealing all parties opposed to RSS and BJP to unite.

The Bihar chief minister had said the Sangh believes in dividing the country on caste and communal lines and it is “confusing people through rumours”.

The RJD chief backing would provide strength to his appeal to cobble up a broader coalition against BJP.

When asked if his party would back Kumar for the post of prime minister in future, Prasad answered in the affirmative.
