Oppn parties should unite and support Nitish to fight PM Modi: JD(U)

Patna (Bihar) [India], Mar 17 (ANI): In the wake of Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) adding one state after another in its kitty, Janata Dal (United) on Friday urged all opposition parties to come together and create an alternative against the former.

JD(U) leader Sanjay Singh while speaking to ANI said that Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar will be the best alternative to fight Prime Minister Narendra Modi fame.

"Opposition should come together in order to create alternative against Prime Minister Modi. And, that alternative will be Nitish Kumar," Singh told ANI.

After the BJP's stupendous performance in the recently-held assembly elections, the central leadership has asked leaders and legislators to gear up for the 2019 general election.

BJP president Amit Shah has reportedly asked party leaders to be ready for the Lok Sabha elections, and asserted that the party's recent victories were an outcome of people's vote against caste-ism, family rule and corruption, and in favour of Prime Minister Modi's leadership. (ANI)
