In yet another jolt to the Opposition bloc, Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar will not attend the Rahul Gandhi-led ‘Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra’ in Patna. Notably, Gandhi is scheduled to hold a rally in Bihar’s capital on January 30. According to sources, CM Kumar has already some programmes lined up on January 30.
In a recent press conference, Congress leader Prem Chandra Mishra announced that Nitish Kumar has agreed to attend the rally in Purnia. The confirmation came after Congress Legislature Party leader Shakeel Ahmed Khan and State President Akhilesh Singh personally met with Kumar and handed over a letter by Mallikarjun Kharge.
