After winning only 43 seats, Kumar’s JDU is BJP’s junior partner. Kumar indicated that LJP damaged JDU’s prospects in different seats. “There were some people trying to create confusion. They succeeded partially. I have nothing to say about it,” Kumar said. BJP has to take the decision on whether LJP should continue in NDA, he said.
On Friday, there will be a meeting of all the alliance partners in Patna and thereafter some decision on government formation will be taken, he said. “Right now, nothing has been finalised. Before I go to the governor to offer my resignation, there would be a meeting and a decision would be taken. So that everything happens simultaneously.”
Kumar said he had no plans to retire immediately though he said 2020 would be his last election. “You didn’t hear me properly. I say this in every election that all is well that ends well,” he said. He refused to comment on Tejashwi Yadav’s claim that the mandate was in his favour.
