Asked about the opposition indulging in "shadow boxing" instead unitedly taking on the BJP, Kumar said in a lighter vein, "There is no shadow boxing. there is only shadow reporting".

Party sources said that the prime focus of the meeting was to increase political footprint of the party within the state.

He also rejected rumours about him being a PM face for Opposition in 2019 Lok Sabha polls.

Chief and Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Monday clarified that he will not be the Opposition's prime ministerial candidate for the 2019 polls, deeming himself ineligible for the post. "We can understand if somebody criticises our policy but character assassination of our leader is not acceptable", a senior JD (U) leader said.

"The Presidential election has been politicised to such an extent that huge issues facing the country, like people being lynched in the name of cow protection and the worsening situation of farmers, are being overlooked", Nitish explained.

A day after hitting the Congress by terming it as the "weakest link" in the opposition, Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar said on Monday that mere unity would not yield much fruits to the opposition; it should also have "alternative narrative".

The Congress leader said "these statements have not affected our Bihar arrangement in any manner".

He said that opposition parties should come out with an alternative narrative against the Modi-led BJP government at the Centre and Congress, being the biggest party, should lead from the front. "If they want to attend it, they can or they can skip it", Tyagi added.

"I feel Nitish Kumar is slowly drifting away from RJD, therefore, he is trying to mend the bond".

Another fissure in the opposition ranks was visible after Kumar said that he had not received any invitation for the public meeting of all opposition parties being organized by RJD chief Lalu Prasad in Bihar on 27 August. Do you want me to get defeated?

The JD (U) president, who asked the opposition to move beyond "reactive narratives", also dispelled fears about fissures in Bihar's Grand Alliance and said the government would fulfill its commitment in time by implementing the "seven resolves" of good governance. We were not even aware of their castes.
