I have no PM ambitions, united alliance is the need of the hour: Nitish Kumar

Patna: Days after NCP chief Sharad Pawar announced his support for Nitish Kumar as the most credible fact of anti-BJP alliance, the latter broke his silence on Monday and said that he no ambitions to become a Prime Minister. 

"I have no PM ambitions. I just want a united alliance which I feel is the need of the hour," the Bihar Chief Minister told ANI. 

Earlier today, former Press Council of India Chairman and Supreme Court of India judge Markandey Katju, endorsed Nitish as the next PM of India while Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal as the deputy Prime Minister. 

The former judge shared his views on his official Facebook page, that read, "I have been critical of our politicians, but as long as the system lasts in India we have to seek the best. In my opinion the next Prime Minister of India should be Nitish Kumar, with Arvind Kejriwal as his Deputy Prime Minister. I say so because I have not heard anything against the personal integrity of these two, even though I have sometimes been critical of them."
