Mumbai: Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Sunday said that he has no desire to become the Chief Minister and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) can make him the Chief Minister.
During the JDU National Executive meeting, Kumar said that he is not associated with this post. Kumar said, “I had no desire to become the chief minister. I said that the people have given their mandate and anyone can be made the chief minister. BJP can make its chief minister.”
This statement is against the BJP, NDA’s ally of six out of seven MLAs of Janata Dal (United) in Arunachal Pradesh.

However, Kumar had already clarified that the developments in Arunachal Pradesh would not have any impact on the politics of Bihar as there is “no dispute” in the coalition government in Bihar.
Nitish had recently stepped down as party chief and handed over the JDU to party leader Ramchandra Prasad Singh.
Kumar is heading the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) government in Bihar along with JD (U), BJP, Hindustani Awam Morcha, and Vikascel Insan Party (VIP).
The NDA had won a majority of 125 seats in the 243-seat Bihar assembly in November. The BJP won 74 seats, JD (U) 43, while eight other NDA constituents won two seats.
