Actor-politician Shatrughan Sinha on Tuesday dubbed Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar as Prime Ministerial material and said that he wanted to build bridges between the former partners BJP and the JD(U).
Nitish Kumar is PM material. He is among the select few good and successful chief ministers in the country today, Sinha,BJP Lok Sabha member from Patna Saheb,said at Jaiprakash Narayan Airport.
Sinha clarified that he was saying so as Kumar was among many leaders qualified for the post. At the end of the day one can become PM only after being chosen by the party and numbers in the elections, he said. He also said that on the basis of his good rapport with Kumar,he would try to build bridges between the NDA and JD(U).
Sinha,who served as Union minister in the Atal Bihari Vajpayee government,said he was not in favour of the BJP baying for Kumars blood and calling the break up with JD(U) a betrayal.
