PATNA: JD-U chief Nitish Kumar today rejected the observations by RJD leader Mohammad Shahabuddin regarding his being a “chief minister by circumstances”.
“People of Bihar know whom they have given their mandate and it is not important for him to comment over who says what,” Kumar told the media in Patna, reacting to Shahabuddin’s remarks.
He said he was hardly bothered by such remarks and would continue doing his works as usual.
Senior RJD leader and deputy chief minister in the government Tejashwi Yadav quickly came in the damage-control mode saying their ruling Grand Alliance in Bihar is as strong as Himalaya.
“Our alliance is as strong as Himalaya and the government was doing better works in the interests of Bihar,” Tejashwi tweeted today.
Tejashwi is younger son of RJD chief Lalu Prasad.
The entire controversy got created after Shahabuddin who came out of jail yesterday said “Nitish Kumar is a chief minister by circumstances and he can’t win more than 20 seats if he contests the elections alone.”
He also rejected Kumar being a “mass leader”.
