"He first supported demonetisation. He yesterday made it clear that JD(U) is not supporting 'bandh' call given by some parties. We also acknowledge his support to the bill," a party leader said.

BJP, he said, also appreciates government's efforts in getting bail of high-profile accused, some linked to ally RJD, cancelled by moving to the Supreme Court.

Incidentally, Shah had parried a query over Kumar's support to in a press conference the chief had held immediately after Prime Minister Modi's announcement in this regard.
