Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Monday said that he has no interest in contesting the election for the President of India post.
“Whoever said and what it is does not matter to me. I am sorry to say but please don’t print it in the news. I am serving the people of Bihar and I will continue it in future as well,” Nitish Kumar said while interacting with media persons after his Janata Darbar.
“Such a speculation started some months ago but I am not interested in it. I clarified in the past that I serve the people of Bihar and I am saying it again,” he said.
Earlier Shrawan Kumar, the Rural Development Minister and Janata Dal-United leader, said that Nitish Kumar is a “Sarva Gun Sampanna” leader having long political career in the country as well experience and ability to hold the post and successfully run it.
Building Construction Minister Ashok Chaudhary also said the same, saying that there is no bigger socialist leader than Nitish Kumar in the country and even leaders of the other parties appreciate it.

There are some flaws here and there, but with all the humour and lighter moments, they can be somewhat overlooked.
