Move beyond reactive narratives, Nitish tells opposition

Move beyond reactive narratives, Nitish tells opposition

Kumar said, "The opposition should have alternative narratives to go to the people against the ruling party on key issues like the problem of farmers".

At a meeting of party workers today, while Mr Kumar hit out at the Congress, he also said he would attend the rally in Patna next month if invited, said party spokesman Sanjay Singh. Nitish Kumar and Congress are allies partner in Bihar and on the national level too they have been constantly trying to form a mahagatbandhan 2019.

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

Political events around the upcoming Presidential poll issue pushed the farmers' issue far back.

Bihar Chief Minister and JD (U) leader Nitish Kumar on Monday said "an alternative narrative" was the need of the hour for the Opposition as a mere "reactive narrative" was not helping them in countering the government. For the 2017 Presidential election, Kumar had initially attempted to unite the Opposition parties to pick a joint candidate.

He made this comment after JD (U) chose to support NDA Presidential nominee, Ram Nath Kovind.

During the meeting, Kumar did not refer to the BJP or Prime Minister and his policies. "The grand alliance government's priority is to implement the programmes that it promised", Kumar said.

"Nitish Kumar is absolutely right. People in Bihar are laughing at us, that despite being the second largest party in Parliament, we are being bullied by the Chief Minister", said a senior leader from the state. Going against the decision of its alliance partners, the RJD and the Congress, Nitish Kumar's JD (U) has chose to back the candidature of former Bihar governor Kovind. "The Congress president had very categorically said a few days ago that in the end, these are decision taken entirely by any individual party, and that decision is of that party alone", said Congress spokesperson Abhishek Manu Singhvi.

The Congress leader also had said that he (Nitish) had taken the first step for defeating a Dalit leader (Oppostion's Presidential candidate Meira Kumar) by extending support to Kovind.

When asked about GST and his attendance in the midnight GST session, Nitish said, "We have always supported GST".
