Sushil Kumar Modi: On His Support For Nitish Kumar

Nitish Kumar’s silence on the CBI’s raids on properties linked to Lalu Prasad’s family, has given the BJP hope of wooing back its old ally. The JD(U) chief’s endorsement of demonetisation and his party’s support for the NDA’s presidential nominee, Ram Nath Kovind, have only worked to strengthen those hopes. BJP leader and former Bihar deputy chief minister Sushil Kumar Modi, who has worked extensively with Nitish Kumar, is closely watching his former colleague’s every move, and waiting to see if he breaks away from the Grand Alliance.
