Speaking to the media, Kumar said, "I have said earlier also that I am not the PM face of opposition in 2019, neither am I eligible". "They (Congress) have also ditched Jawaharlal Nehru's ideologies", said Kumar.

"Alternative politics is demand of the time", he added.

Taking a dig at the Congress and the RJD, the JD (U) leader said the opposition should not object to all government moves just for the sake of opposition unity.
Although widely considered by JD (U) leaders and workers as the prime ministerial candidate of a likely alliance of non-NDA parties, Nitish Kumar denied yet again that he is in the race.
Nitish's statements intensify the cracks within the Opposition following two recent events: the presidential election, in which Nitish broke ranks with the Opposition in declaring his support for Ram Nath Kovind, and Parliament's midnight session over GST which the Congress and a few other Opposition parties boycotted.
Nitish Kumar said the ruling alliance in Bihar remains strong and that he is committed to take the state forward.
Earlier on June 19, Chief Minister Nitish said that a thorough discussion will be held on the matter within the Janata Dal (United) party. Nitish has been citing good track-record and cordial nature of Kovind as the reason behind supporting him. After that when the congress chose to boycott the midnight session of the parliament to lauch the GST in the country, then also his party choose to attend the celebration.
