New Delhi :

Hitting back at RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav, Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar on Monday said that the former is “darling “of media and whatever he says, it gets published.  

While clarifying over JDU’s non-inclusion in cabinet reshuffle, Nitish said there was no talk on joining government, then why is it being discussed.

On Sunday, Lalu had mocked Nitish over non-inclusion of any JD(U) leader in the Union council of ministers.

"Some JD(U) leaders had got new kurta-pyjama and bundi (Nehru jackets) stitched for the swearing-in ceremony, but the invitation did not come," he said.

"Why should Prime Minister Narendra Modi or BJP chiefAmit Shah consult Nitish Kumar when they know his character,"the RJD boss had said.

Bihar Chief Minister and JD(U) president Nitish Kumar on Monday described the RJD's "BJP Bhagao, Desh Bachao" rally on August 27 here as a "family function" as there was nothing political in it.

"What was political in it? It was basically a family function. What should I say on that?" he said.
