Nitish Kumar and Lalu Yadav split over Modi's Presidential candidate
the selection of Ram Nath Kovind for the President of India has fissured the opposition. Especially in Bihar, the two main partners in government, Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and Lalu Yadav, have a propensity for disagreement. The Chief Minister visited the Governor at his home in Patna to congratulate him on his nomination.
However, Lalu, who is his main ally and the Congress ,who is their junior partner in Bihar, feel that it's imperative to push for an election for Rashtrapati Bhavan to make it clear that they cannot rally behind the likelihood of the first-ever BJP leader as President of India.
