"Nitish Kumar is certainly PM material," the Bharatiya Janata Party's (BJP) Lok Sabha member from Patna Saheb said.

Shatrughan Sinha said Nitish Kumar was a nice human being and a man of principles. "He is a mature politician and a good man,” Sinha said.

Asked about the possibility of Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi becoming the BJP's prime ministerial candidate, Shatrughan Sinha said while Modi was his "dearest leader" and popular nationally, Nitish Kumar "is complete PM material".

Last week, Shatrughan Sinha had said that he favoured BJP leader LK Advani over Modi and expressed unhappiness over the sidelining of the senior leader in the party and its decision making process.
