Nitish Kumar denies rumours of tension in the Mahagathbandhan

Lalu Prasad Yadav and Nitish Kumar

Nitish's statements intensify the cracks within the Opposition. Earlier, JD (U) has decided that it would not participate in the rally as a party.

Earlier on June 19, Chief Minister Nitish said that a thorough discussion will be held on the matter within the Janata Dal (United) party. "The Congress alone is to blame for the current mess in the Opposition fold...", he said.

Three police officials, including two superintendent-rank officers, in Bihar were issued show cause notices on Monday for allegedly fiddling with their mobile phones during Chief Minister Nitish Kumar's address at an event last week.

"Even when my party was in the NDA and the BJP was opposed to the GST, we were in support of the grand tax legislation".

A day after hinting towards his rift with Congress, Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar said that the national party should present an alternative agenda against the Modi government as merely harping about the unity in opposition won't help the country.

He was sidelined for two seasons with injuries, and finally played this season in the National Basketball Association . McGruder started 65 games this season for the Miami Heat, averaging 6.4 points and three rebounds per game.

"Our leader Nitish Kumar will be attending the RJD's anti-BJP rally in his personal capacity, if he is invited", JD (U) spokesperson Sanjay Singh said after the party's state executive committee meeting.

Singhvi also sought to downplay the JD (U) decision to support NDA presidential candidate Ram Nath Kovind, saying parties can take individual decisions. "People in Bihar are laughing at us, that despite being the second largest party in Parliament, we are being bullied by the Chief Minister", said a senior leader from the state. "I don't have the capability nor do I have the aspiration for it", Kumar said. "I can not be", he said, adding, "Have you so far that someone whose name is talked about for something gets it?"

"It is because of the Congress that we could not have an alliance in UP, it was because of the Congress that we could not have an alliance in Assam, and the Congress did not take us into confidence for the presidential polls as well", he said.

According to him, ordinary workers want to get out of the coalition and sit in Opposition, and corner the Bihar government over its failures.

Amid continuing differences within Bihar's ruling Grand Alliance, Janata Dal-United (JD-U) has chose to attend the rollout of GST in Parliament, while Lalu Prasad's Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) - like the Congress - will not.
