"What is the need for me to contest the Assembly polls? I am already a Member of Legislative Council and have two-three years left to complete the term," Kumar told sources.
"I will rather concentrate on electioneering for the NDA in its bid to seek a second term in office to complete development works in the state," he said.
Kumar has been an MLC ever since he came to power after the NDA in Nov 2005.
The Assembly elections in Bihar are due in Oct- Nov.
