JD(U) turns up heat on BJP, wants NDA panel, says Nitish has ‘all qualities of PM’.

After putting the BJP in a spot by seeking an inquiry in the Pegasus spyware issue and teaming up with rival RJD to demand a caste census, key ally JD(U) turned up the heat on its alliance partner Sunday by asking for an NDA coordination committee at the state and central levels to “discuss several issues we differ on”.

The party also passed a resolution at its national council meeting that Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar has “all the qualities” that a Prime Minister should have.

Speaking to reporters after the council meeting, JD(U) principal general secretary and national spokesperson K C Tyagi said: “Just as there had been a coordination committee of the NDA during the AB Vajpayee government, we would welcome a similar committee now to discuss several issues we differ on. It would help in smooth functioning of the alliance and discourage unwarranted comments from leaders of the NDA alliance.”
