Nitish parries questions on election campaign in Gujarat

Patna,(BiharTimes): Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar is yet to confirm whether he would be campaigning for Janata Dal (United) candidates or not in the coming Assembly election in Gujarat.
He parried direct questions from the media on the issue and said that the national leadership of his party would be able to say anything on the issue. He said that he would be quite busy all these months as he had to undertake Sewa Yatra and even had a plan to go to Pakistan later in the year.

The question was raised at the Press conference on the sidelines of Janata Darbar on Monday after the national president of the party, Sharad Yadav, announced that the Janata Dal (United) would be contesting election in some seats in Gujarat as there is no alliance with the BJP there. He said his party’s alliance with the BJP is in Bihar, Jharkhand, Rajasthan and Karnataka, but not in Gujarat and Madhya Pradesh. There was alliance in UP but in the 2012 Assembly election the alliance collapsed.

Answering a question on the policemen’s agitation Nitish said that his government would accept their genuine demands and told newspersons that the issue should not be highlighted too much.

It needs to be recalled that Bihar Policemen Association personnel wore black badges at the CM’s Janata Darbar on Monday.

Nitish also announced that President Pranab Mukherjee may be visiting Bihar on Oct 3, but added that the programme is yet to be finalized.
