Nobody Strong Enough To Take On PM Modi In 2019, Says Nitish Kumar

Showering praise on Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Monday said that “nobody has the capability to challenge him” in the 2019 elections.

“Modi ji ka muqabla karne ki kisi mein chhamta hai nahi,” said Kumar in his first press conference after being sworn in as the chief minister for the sixth time.

Interestingly, Kumar had severed ties with the BJP before the 2014 elections after the NDA nominated Modi as its prime ministerial candidate. Kumar, however, had said his reason to break the alliance with the BJP was that he did not wish to empower the communal forces.
