The “clarification” comes amid wide speculations in the political circles about Kumar is joining the BJP camp given his entirely different stand over various national issues in recent days as compared to both his allies, RJD and the Congress.

Kumar’s JD-U has not only supported NDA’s presidential candidate Ram Nath Kovind but also the GST in sharp contrast to his allies which opposed both.

Addressing the meeting, the chief minister also launched attacks on the BJP saying the party had no role in the freedom movement, as per reports.

“The BJP has no role in the freedom movement yet it rules the country,” he rued and also hit out at his old ally for “cow vigilantism”.
