New Delhi: In more trouble for the BJP, crucial NDA ally, the JD(U) said on Tuesday that it must name its Prime Ministerial candidate before the 2014 General Elections, and must name a person who has secular credentials, which is being seen by many as an indirect jibe at Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi.
JD(U) leader Nitish Kumar made the statement early on Tuesday morning.
Modi and Nitish have been involved in many public spats in the past.
Modi and Nitish share a long history of public spats and cold vibes, with each taking a jibe at the other whenever provided with a chance.
