Patna: After a marathon two hours long meeting with his senior party colleagues, Bihar CM Nitish Kumar who is also president of JD(U), said his party and workers would not join the Bharat bandh call given by opposition parties on November 28. The JD(U) would also not join the dharna organised by the TMC president and West Bengal chief minister Mamta Banerjee at Gardanibagh ground here on November 30.
Nitish held discussions with party secretary general K C Tyagi, general secretary R C P Sinha, Harivansh Singh, MP, and state JD(U) president Bashistha Narain Singh and resolved to support the prime minister’s action against black money. Nitish said JD (U) was with the Centre on its decision to ban high denomination currency notes.
The Congress and the RJD, two partners in the government led by Nitish, are against PM’s action and have openly opposed PM’s decision.
