Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar speaks on reports of his criticism of the Congress, a member of the Grand Alliance government headed by him in Bihar.

"What I said during a party meeting yesterday was in a particular context, don't interpret it differently.

"I have said several times that the Congress is a big party and it should set the agenda. Opposition needs an alternate narrative, just reactive narrative won't work.

"I have said earlier also that I am not the PM face of opposition in 2019, neither am I eligible."

On not attending the midnight GST event, he said, "There was no invitation,so where is the question of attending or skipping?"

On various allegations leveled by Bharatiya Janata Party leader Sushil Modi against his government and his alliance partner Lalu Yadav and his two sons, Kumar said, "He (Sushil Modi) has a habit of giving statements daily, I don't read and neither do I have interest."

At a meeting of top leaders yesterday of his Janata Dal-United, the Chief Minister said that the Congress has heavily dented the impact of a large league of opposition parties with lethargy and inaction on key issues including the decision on who to field as the candidate for President of India.
