Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar will be prime minister face of secular front for the the 2019 general elections as JDU has started officially projecting him as the prime ministerial candidate and wants all secular forces to unite and contest under his leadership. Bharti Mehta said that Nitish Kumar was unanimously accepted across the country as a progressive and visionary statesman.
"As the Bihar CM, he has empowered women through his initiatives like reservation in civic bodies, bicycle scheme for schoolgirls and prohibition. His seven resolves are a masterstroke for development as they include free electricity and water connections to every household and 35% reservation for women in government jobs in the state she said.
