Cong asks secular forces in Bihar to unite under Nitish

Congress on Thursday gave a call to all secular parties to unite under Nitish Kumar for contesting the Bihar Assembly election later this year. “Nitish Kumar’s image is good and he has set a track record for development during his tenure. It is high time that all secular forces unite under his leadership so that their votes do not get divided and benefit rival parties like BJP,” Bihar Pradesh Congress Committee (BPCC) Chief Spokesperson H K Verma said.

“Time is less and all the secular forces should talk among themselves and decide about Nitish Kumar’s leadership for the Assembly polls scheduled later this year,” he said. Congress is supporting the JD(U) government in the state from outside and was part of secular alliance that won six out of 10 seats that went for bypoll last year merely three months after massive victory of NDA in Bihar last year. The Congress leader said Kumar has set an example among the leaders of the country by owning moral responsibility for JD (U)’s poor performance in the Lok Sabha polls  and resigning from the Chief Minister’s post.
