New Delhi: In what appears to be an embarrassing situation for Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar that JD (U) MP from Muzaffarpur, Jai Narayan Prasad Nishad is reportedly going to perform a yagna at his residence for realizing Gujarat CM Narendra Modi’s dream to become Prime Minister of India.

Former BJP MP Shyam Bihari said that Nishad has already been informed that the yagna is meant for making Modi Prime Minister of the country. JD (U) MP expressed no objection in this regard, added the BJP leader.

Commenting on the issue, BJP leader Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi said that the countrymen want change at the Centre and they want to participate in it. There is no wrong in performing puja for someone, added Naqvi. At the same time, JD (U) spokesperson Sabir Ali said that no political party gives importance to the Septuagenarian Nishad.

Nishad’s move will certainly irk Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar who has been at logger heads with his Gujarat counterpart Modi over the issue of Prime Ministerial candidate. On several occasions, Nitish refused to share dais with Modi for fear of erosion of minority vote bank.

In 2009 and 2010, Nitish had mounted pressure on the BJP high command not to allow Modi to campaigns in Bihar.
