Nitish may not contest Bihar Assembly polls
Patna: Bihar Chief Minister and JD(U) leader
Nitish Kumar today said he is unlikely to contest the Assembly
"What is the need for me to contest the Assembly polls? I
am already a Member of Legislative Council and have two-three
years left to complete the term," Kumar told reporters here.
"I will rather concentrate on electioneering for the NDA
in its bid to seek a second term in office to complete
development works in the state," he said.
Kumar has been an MLC ever since he took over the reins
of the state after the NDA came to power in November 2005.
The Assembly elections in Bihar are due in October-
