Patna, June 26: Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leader Tejashwi Yadav on Tuesday stated that there is no possibility of an alliance with Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar.
“Doors to Nitish Kumar are permanently closed for an alliance”, he asserted.
His statement comes a day after, Hindustani Awam Morcha (HAM) chief Jitan Ram Manjhi said: “If Nitish Kumar gives up CM seat and joins ‘mahagathbandhan’, then I think Tejashvi Prasad ji will be our CM face for 2020 Bihar elections”.
In February, Manjhi left the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) for RJD-led grand alliance.
JDU and RJD fought in alliance with Nitish Kumar as its chief ministerial face in the last assembly elections in Bihar, while Tejashwi was appointed as the deputy chief minister post the elections.
The Rashtriya Janata Dal has already announced Tejashwi as its chief ministerial face for Bihar polls in 2020.
