The NDA seems to be divided in not just the race for the presidential poll but also over who could be the next Prime Minister. The Janata Dal (United) has made it clear that Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi is not acceptable to it as the Prime Ministerial candidate.
In an interview to ‘Economic Times’, Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar insisted that the NDA should name its Prime Ministerial candidate before the 2014 Lok Sabha polls and the candidate must have secular credentials and a liberal frame of mind. What’s more, even the Shiv Sena backed Nitish Kumar on the issue. Some other NDA constituents, however, tried to downplay the remarks.
