A day after Gujarat CM Narendra Modi took a dig at his Bihar counterpart Nitish Kumar,saying “some chief ministers are shown black flags in their own states”,Kumar reiterated that the alliance in Bihar with the BJP was intact.

The Bihar Chief Minister parried questions on Modi as possible NDA PM candidate. “I cannot answer questions on ifs and buts. Our alliance has been going well and is intact,” Kumar said.

He sought to divert media attention by saying he would invite Nawaz Sharif to Bihar once Sharif took over the reins of Pakistan. He recounted his Pakistan visit and hospitality extended to him there. Kumar has decided to open a museum at the CM’s official residence to put on display souvenirs and mementos received during his foreign trips.
