In a press conference on Monday, Nitish broke his silence on breaking away from Mahagathbandhan, saying he was compelled to take a decision after it became “impossible to continue”, adding that he intimated Lalu Prasad about allegations against Deputy CM Tejashwi Yadav and asked him to “issue a clarification on the CBI raids on him.”
Nitish asserted that he never asked anybody to resign but wanted Lalu to go public and clarify his stand on CBI raids. “But they were not ready to clarify,” Nitish said, referring to the reason which led to the dissolution of Mahagathbandhan.
Nitish Kumar In his Press Conference Said,
“BJP approached me soon after I resigned as Bihar Chief Minister, the party said that they are with us completely. Many people said everything was preplanned, but actually, things occurred at a rapid pace. We only wanted RJD to explain charges framed against them, but, later it seemed if they were not in a position to do so. Once Lalu ji was contesting Patna Univ Students’ Union election, I was in engineering college, I had 450/500 votes polled for him ”
But The Rubbing Salt on Bones Moment was yet to come when Nitish Kumar who was once projected as P.M. Candidate of Grand Alliance By Media made some a statement about P.M. Modi & called him the “biggest leader” in the country and added that “there is no one who can defeat him.”
“Nobody can compete with Narendra Modi. I don’t have the capability to do that, and there is nobody capable enough in the country right now,” he said, “there is no doubt that he will win in 2019 again.”

In a veiled attack on his party’s senior leader Sharad Yadav, who has expressed disappointment over Nitish’s decision to join hands with BJP, he said, “My party is only made for Bihar. I have nothing to do with other states. Who knows, few more problems could be solved at a time.”
