  • Congress Calls On Nitish To Reconsider Support To Kovind

He said that a "Sangh-mukt Bharat" (RSS-free India, which the Opposition aim for) would be possible only if all Opposition parties are united. Speaking at the state executive meeting of his party, Nitish said, "The idea of a Sangh-mukt Bharat can not fructify without taking all opposition parties into confidence".

Mr Kumar added, "The JD (U) is not a party which depends on others and my party will not compromise under any circumstances". He said that there were no cracks in Opposition unity and the Presidential poll is a single incident. "The Congress alone is to blame for the current mess in the Opposition fold...", he said.

Lalu, on the other hand, trained guns on Nitish Kumar, saying Bihar chief minister had committed a "historical mistake" by extending support to Kovind. "Congress is a part of Maha Gathbandhan (Grand Alliance) in Bihar and it is our priority to fulfill the programmes of the Maha Gadhbandhan", Nitish said.

Kumar further expressed concern over the way politics crept into presidential elections which pushed to the background the issues of the farmers.

IMF cuts US growth outlook
Elsewhere, the International Monetary Fund said the U.S. tax system was in need of fundamental reform and radical simplification. Growth was revised down to 2.1 per cent from 2.3 per cent this year and to 2.1 per cent from 2.5 per cent next year.

A day after hitting the Congress by terming it as the "weakest link" in the opposition, Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar said on Monday that mere unity would not yield much fruits to the opposition; it should also have "alternative narrative". "I don't have the capability nor do I have the aspiration for it", Kumar said.

Meira Kumar, the opposition's presidential nominee, today asserted that she was not a "scapegoat" in the upcoming election to the country's top constitutional post as she was fighting for an ideology.

Singhvi also sought to downplay the JD (U) decision to support NDA presidential candidate Ram Nath Kovind, saying parties can take individual decisions. Senior leaders of the JD (U) say that the corruption allegations against Lalu Prasad and his family members are a big reason for a dilemma in the JD (U) over attending the public meeting. "I do not want to be Prime Minister", added Nitish. When pointed out that liquor, real estate and petroleum had been kept out of the GST ambit, Kumar, who has been keen on implementing total prohibition in the state since April past year, said such issues would be taken up subsequently by the authorities.

According to him, ordinary workers want to get out of the coalition and sit in Opposition, and corner the Bihar government over its failures. We were not even aware of their castes.
