NEW DELHI: Bihar Chief Minister Janata Dal (U) leader Nitish Kumar today stated that it is Congress party’s job to set a coherent opposition agenda that is “non-reactive”. He further ruled out any desire to be the opposition’s face for Prime Minister in 2019.
“The opposition must have an agenda and it currently does not have one,” said the JD U leader who’s also Bihar’s chief minister.
To say that differences between Nitish and the Congress leadership have been apparent lately is an understatement, but on Monday Nitish for the first time spelled out exactly what his problem with the main opposition party is.
“The Opposition must have an agenda and the Congress is a big party. It is its job to set the agenda, an alternative narrative, a narrative that isn’t reactive,” Nitish said.
