As a section of the BJP saw Narendra Modi’s induction in the parliamentary board as a step towards his becoming PM candidate,key ally JD(U) Sunday said only one with secular credentials should occupy the top slot.

Asked whether Modi’s inclusion is an indicator of his projection as PM candidate,JD(U) Bihar unit spokesman Niraj Kumar said,“JD(U) leadership’s stand in this regard has been known. We believe that a PM candidate should have secular credentials to take along diverse groups of people of the country.” He said that Modi’s induction is an “internal matter” of BJP.

In Delhi,JD(U) chief Sharad Yadav said he has no problem with the new team. On whether he foresaw any hitches in the future,he said,“Who knows what will happen tomorrow.”
