Moments after Nitish Kumar was sworn in as Bihar Chief Minister on Wednesday parting ways with the BJP and joining the Grand Alliance to form government in the state, he called for a united Opposition ahead of the General elections scheduled to be held in 2024.
Kumar parted ways with the BJP alleging that the party was trying to break the JD(U), and joined hands with political opponents RJD, the Congress and the Left parties in the Mahagathbandhan on Tuesday.
Speculations have been rife regarding his future with his 'national ambitions' doing rounds in the political sphere since his move against the NDA, with whom he had reunited in 2017.
However, the Chief Minister rejected any such speculations after being sworn in today.
"Those who came to power in 2014, will they be victorious in 2024? I would like all (opposition) to be united for 2024. I am not a contender for any such post (on PM post)," he said while speaking to the reporters after his swearing-in.
Nitish Kumar was sworn in as the Chief Minister while RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav became his Deputy in the Bihar government on Wednesday.
