New Delhi: Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Sunday said the tradition of holding discussions was not followed as far as the appointment of the Governor of the state is concerned."
As per the tradition, the Union Home Minister holds discussion with Chief Minister and informs him, I just said no discussions were held with me. I didn`t comment on any individual, just said the tradition of holding discussions or at least informing wasn`t followed," said Nitish.
"We are seeing that the BJP people are giving out the Governor`s caste identity. They want to look at everything through caste. Whoever takes charge as Governor of Bihar will be Bihar Governor, not a leader of a particular community," he added.
Senior BJP leader Ram Nath Kovind was yesterday appointed as the new Governor of Bihar, months ahead of the assembly elections in the state.
