Nitish elected JD(U) president as party lauds his role in bringing together opposition parties

Date:

New Delhi: Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar was elected Janata Dal (United) president on Friday at the meeting of the party’s national executive which lauded his role in bringing together opposition parties and spearheading the demand for caste census.

Party’s chief spokesperson K C Tyagi said Kumar has agreed to take over the mantle from Lalan Singh.

Singh stepped down at the closed-door meeting and proposed Kumar’s name, saying his leadership will be needed at this crucial juncture in the run up to the 2024 Lok Sabha polls while he will be busy fighting his own election. He currently represents Munger constituency in Lok Sabha.

The BJP on Friday said Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar coming back at the helm of the JD(U) as its president is its “internal matter”, but the way it has happened has further reduced people’s faith in the party.

“The era of cheating is now over. The public will not accept the group of thugs now,” BJP legislator and Leader of Opposition in the Bihar Assembly Vijay Kumar Sinha told PTI here.

His reaction came after Kumar was elected as the president of the Janata Dal (United) at a meeting of the party’s national executive on Friday.
