'Nitish can defeat BJP in 2019 Lok Sabha polls'

 Jharkhand Vikas Morcha (JVM) chief Babu Lal Marandi said that Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar is the most suitable face as the prime ministerial candidate and he can defeat the BJP in 2019 Lok Sabha polls.

 
"All regional and secular-democratic parties have to unite across the country to ensure defeat of the BJP," Marandi told the media in Patna.
 
Marandi's statement came a day after Janata Dal-United (JD-U) general secretary K.C. Tyagi made it clear that Nitish Kumar has no prime ministerial ambitions and is only working to unite like-minded parties to defeat the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) .
 
"The party has never projected Nitish Kumar as the prime ministerial candidate so far," Tyagi said.
 
According to JD-U leaders, Marandi is likely to join hands with Nitish Kumar in Jharkhand.
