Watch: what Nitish Kumar had to say about becoming PM candidate

Nitish Kumar's exit from the BJP-led NDA and re-entry into a 'grand alliance' with Tejashwi Yadav-led RJD has re-ignited speculations that the JD(U) chief will contest as a prime ministerial candidate for the opposition in 2024. 

Nitish Kumar's exit from the BJP-led NDA and re-entry into a 'grand alliance' with Tejashwi Yadav-led RJD has re-ignited speculations that the JD(U) chief will contest as a prime ministerial candidate for the opposition in 2024.

Kumar, however, dismissed questions of reporters on the same and said his agenda is Bihar's development.

JD(U) third major ally to snap ties with BJP in last three years

In a day of fast-moving political developments, Bihar’s mercurial leader Nitish Kumar twice met Governor Phagu Chauhan, first to hand in his resignation as NDA chief minister and then after being elected leader of the RJD-led `Mahagathbandhan’ (grand alliance) to stake claim for the top job in the state once again.

Bihar: BJP to hold a state-wide protest against Nitish's exit from alliance

His move which was a reversal of what happened in 2017 when he left the Mahagathbandhan to rejoin the NDA, left ally BJP out in the cold for the second time in nine years.

He had deserted the NDA for the first time in 2013 after Narendra Modi became the coalition's Prime Ministerial candidate.
