A day earlier, Prasad was quoted as saying in a local newspaper that his first choice for PM candidate is Kumar while stating he had no idea as to if Rahul Gandhi was in the race.

“Nitish Kumar is my first choice as the PM candidate,” the RJD chief had reportedly said in an interview, though adding there were many candidates in the race.

It’s dead sure, he asserted, that the BJP will not return to power after the next 2019 LS polls. He added he had no information if Congress Vice-President would be projected as PM candidate although the LS polls are still very far away.

“There are so many candidates from the opposition camp, such as Nitish Kumar, Myulayam Singh Yadav, Mamata Banerjee, J Jayalalitha and M Karunanidhi who qualify for the PM post but ‘Jisaka sanyog banega wahi Pradhan Mantri hoga (But, it all depends on circumstances),” Prasad added.
