"Respected Nitish Kumarji and the JD(U) have supported the move by the Centre only in the national interest.

"As far as national interest is concerned, we are with the Centre and its policies like and putting Benami properties under the scanner. The JD(U) government under the leadership of will support the Narendra Modi government," he added.

The Bihar Chief Minister whose party, the JD(U), had been a ally till June 2013 has refused to join forces with the opposition that have planned a nation-wide protest on Monday.
