Nitish's statements intensify the cracks within the Opposition.
"Refuting the reports on a rift in the alliance, Nitish said that Party issues are discussed in the meeting I had said it in a context and there should be no interpretation outside.", he said.
The JD (U) has scotched rumours that Nitish Kumar will not attend RJD's proposed rally in Patna next month. I have said earlier also, I am not the face for opposition for 2019 polls, neither can I be.
Though, in spite of showing his continued coalition with Congress, he urged to the party that it should present an alternative narrative as Congress is a big party and only reactive narrative and talks of unity won't work.
On Monday, Kumar said: "Just talking of unity among opposition parties is not enough...there must be a narrative - not just in reaction to what the BJP offers, but an alternative narrative", as quoted by NDTV.
"We got bogged down speaking against each other on the issue of the presidential candidate and lost the momentum on a more burning issues like farmer problems, triggering a spate of suicides in different parts of the country", Kumar said.
Trump Optimistic Senate Health Care Bill Gains Support Needed
The legislation is expected to continue to change as senators negotiate ahead of the planned vote later this week. By putting Medicaid on a budget, the bill saves $772 billion over 10 years. "1 in 5 Mainers are on Medicaid".
Relentless attacks by Nitish on the Congress and its leadership in the last few days have forced the grand old party on the back foot.
Nitish Kumar on Sunday said that the Congress alone was "responsible for the current mess in the opposition".
He made this comment after JD (U) chose to support NDA Presidential nominee, Ram Nath Kovind. "I can not be", he said, adding, "Have you so far that someone whose name is talked about for something gets it?"
When asked why he did not attend the special midnight session of Parliament for the launch of the Goods and Services Tax, the Janata Dal (United) leader said he was not invited.
"There was no invitation, so where is the question of attending or skipping?" he added.
Nitish put Congress on the stand saying since the INC is the largest party in the "Mahagathbandhan" it should take the lead and set the opposition's agenda for the 2019 general elections. Kumar also met former Prime Minister and Janata Dal (Secular) supremo H D Deve Gowda and sought his party's support to her candidature. They believe it will help the Congress's revival in the state, or else, "we won't be able to win even seven seats in the next Assembly elections".
