ALSO READ'Imaginary' plans cannot let anyone become PM: BJP on Nitish-for-PM Nitish congratulates BJP, says demonetisation gave satisfaction to poor BJP-RJD in war of words as Nitish Kumar sparks suspense by painting lotus Sushil Modi, Rabri Devi spar over Nitish cosying up with BJP Nitish Kumar flays BJP leaders for 'defaming' Bihar
Mocking the suggestions made by the Janata Dal (United) to make Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar the prime ministerial face, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Friday said every political party should remember that by just making 'imaginary plans', one cannot be elected as the Prime Minister.
"Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) wants to see Arvind Kejriwal as a prime minister, Akhilesh Yadav, Mamata Banerjee are also there in the race. Every regional party projects their leader suitable to the post of a prime minister, but just by imagining things, one cannot be elected as the prime minister," BJP leader Sushil Modi told ANI.
RJD is also angry over the recent meeting of two senior JDU leaders Shyam Rajak and Sanjay Singh with Union Minister Ram Kripal Yadav on the day of Holi which both leaders called an informal meeting.
However, in order to douse the fire over the grand alliance, RJD leader and deputy CM Tejaswi Yadav and his MLC mother Rabri Devi have asked Raghuvansh Prasad Singh to refrain from making comments which are adverse to health of grand alliance.
In the wake of Prime Minister Modi-led BJP adding one state after another in its kitty, the JD (U) urged all opposition parties to come together and create an alternative against the former.
JD (U) leader Sanjay Singh, while speaking to ANI, said that Nitish will be the best alternative to fight Prime Minister Modi.
"Opposition should come together in order to create alternative against Prime Minister Modi. And, that alternative will be Nitish Kumar," Singh told ANI.
After the BJP's stupendous performance in the recently-held assembly elections, the central leadership has asked leaders and legislators to gear up for the 2019 general election.
BJP president Amit Shah has reportedly asked party leaders to be ready for the Lok Sabha elections while asserting that the party's recent victories was an outcome of the people's vote against casteism, family rule and corruption, and in favour of Prime Minister Modi's leadership.
It may be noted that ever since BJP recorded a thumping majority in Uttar Pradesh, senior RJD leader Raghuvansh Prasad Singh has alleged that Nitish Kumar's party JDU by deciding not to fight polls in UP covertly helped the BJP to win elections.
Nitish Kumar too, reacting to the UP poll results had slammed the Samajwadi-Congress alliance asserting that their opposition to de-monetization ruined their chances in elections.
He said that opposition de-monetization was a wrong move by parties like Congress, Samajwadi Party and BSP.
