Lalu appealed to Nitish Kumar to consider the decision of support to Kovind

Vastavam web:  RJD chief Lalu Prasad today again appealed to Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar not to make a “historic blunder” by extending support to the NDA nominee for the presidential poll.Describing the combined opposition nominee Meira Kumar as “Bihar ki Beti” (daughter of Bihar), Prasad appealed to Kumar to “mend the historic blunder” of supporting NDA candidate Ram Nath Kovind.The RJD president, however, made it clear that the divergent paths taken by his party and the JD(U) would have no impact on the Grand Alliance government in Bihar headed by Kumar.”There will be no impact of this (different views of the RJD and the JD(U)) on the Grand Alliance government in the future,” Prasad said.

“Kovind as governor of Bihar walked hand-in-hand with the state government on the path of development he has displayed attachment with Bihar,” Singh said.Rajak is deputy leader in the state assembly and a member of the JD(U) core committee which decided on Tuesday to support Kovind.”He is a Shiv Sena man harbouring hardcore hinduvta ideology how can he be a clean man?” Mastan argued.Later in the evening, Kumar visited Prasad’s residence to attend an Iftar party where he was warmly greeted by the host and Deputy Chief Minister Tejawsi Yadav. Prasad’s daughter Misa Bharti, a Rajya Sabha member, said talks were held between the two leaders, but refused to divulge the details.
