Patna: Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar Tuesday alleged that RJD and Congress were in secret pact and RJD leader Raghuvansh Prasad Singh`s statement that his party might seek support of the Congress after the polls had vindicated his stand.

"The statement of Singh has proved that the game has
been fixed between Congress and RJD. We always have firm
belief that they are fighting separately only to join later.

Their purpose is clear. They act separately against us, but are together in all things," Kumar said.
Singh had yesterday said that RJD would seek Congress
support to form government in Bihar in the event of the coming
polls throwing up a hung assembly.
"We will see what comes up after the elections. In the
event of the RJD-LJP alliance falling short of majority, it
will approach Congress and other secular parties for support,"
Singh had yesterday said.
