Projecting Nitish Kumar as a worthy candidate to become India’s next Prime Minister, Janata Dal (United) leader K.C. Tyagi has said that the Bihar Chief Minister is ideal for the post. Speaking to ANI here, Tyagi said that the decision to nominate Kumar as prime ministerial candidate was discussed at a meeting of the party on Monday.

“I think Nitish Kumar is suitable for the post, but it is up to our members to decide who could be the next Prime Minister,” Tyagi said.

The JD (U) currently has two seats in the Lok Sabha and Bihar offers a total of 40 seats in the lower house.

With the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) and Congress as alliance partners, Nitish could increase his tally for the upcoming 2019 elections.

The two parties are in a grand alliance with Lalu Yadav’s RJD in Bihar and the latest proposition is an attempt to form a similar affiliation for UP where the ruling Samajwadi Party is on a wobbly track and the BJP is fast gaining ground posyt its phenomenal 2014 Lok Sabha poll performance.

          Spare us your suggestions. What suits Bihar may not be suitable for the rest of India.

                I would say, Sapne are not bad... But Nitish Ji should first transform Bihar and then talk about anything. Still bihar does not see much industrialisation...people are still flocking outside for job...public system is same as before...How people will trust Nitish Ji as a PM??

                  Tyagi ws generally a better person than others in JDU. Now it seems senility has cropped in due to his age and talking all nonsense.

                    First Nitish should win an election on his own. he has never won an election on his own, it is either with help of BJP or RJD. Even today if RJD leaves and BJP refuse to support him his party would end up as third party in Bihar, forget the India, Mulayam at least wins UP on his own.

                        Nitish has less then 1 % quality to be better PM then MODI- Modi is India's et country just cannot replace him for any one else (What Rahul ?, Kejariwal? Sarad Pawar ? Diggi ? Akhilesh ? Mohan bhagvat? Ramdev ?Tiwari ? Swami ?) what would happen if they all supported MODIJI INDIA WOULD BE GOLD MINE AND AN ICON OF THIS CENTURY

                              Before the kid is born, stich the socks! Tyagi belongs to this category. Nitish is struggling in bihar to retain his CM chair as lallu goons are behind him. His days are numbered as he will be kicked out oneday to bring lallu's son as CM. This will happen one day. So, nitish desperately looking for alternative job :)

                                The Janata Dal (United) leader K.C. Tyagi has to realize India is a fast developing country in South Asia, not a banana republic, Nitish Kumar doesn't have leadership capabilities like Modi, Nitish Kumar has no charisma like Modi, Nitish Kumar is is a failed leader in his own state of Bihar and is controlled by the criminal gang of Lalu family, Nitish Kumar has the looks of a drunk/alcoholic, and overall a in spite of possessing degree in engineering.

                                      Nitish was not able to take care of Shabuddin, how can Nation be entrusted to him.lt;br/gt;He is another ikon of Congress. Let him continue where he is and see what he do forlt;br/gt;Bihar.

                                        Why Nitish ? Why not Laloo, all we need is his "Tabela" in Delhi to run the country.
