Prasad also rubbished reports that talks got stuck on projecting Nitish Kumar as chief ministerial candidate.

Accepting that the exercise was not easy which could be solved 'with chu mantar',  Prasad told reporters that considering the fact that not much time was left for Bihar poll  he, Nitish Kumar and others would soon sit to reach to a decision whether to go for merger or adjustment after assessing all aspects and situation.

"Merger or adjustment we will decided after assessing all aspects and situation like safeguarding respective party symbol its not a big issue... hamara maan saf rahna chahiye (our soul shall be clean)," Prasad said on arrival from Delhi.
    
Prasad said neither JD(U) nor Nitish Kumar ever put CM candidature condition before him or other leaders.

"We will take a decision on these issues at an appropriate time," the RJD chief said "the bigger issue is to defeat BJP and not who will be CM or occupy what post".
