Nitish Kumar and his MLAs told that JDU would not support the congress.
JDU MLA Ratnesh Sada said “The decision was taken at a meeting of our legislators “.
Nitish Kumar told his MLAs that Kovind, who was the Bihar governor before he was picked by BJP for top post , was ‘a good man’.
Bihar CM has reportedly told Congress Chief Sonia Gandhi about his decision.
Nitish Kumar had dropped hints on his support to Kovind.
Nitish was the first leader who congratulated Ram Nath Kovind in Governor House.
“Its a proud moment for Bihar that the governor of the state has been picked up as NDA’s President choice” Said Nitish.
Meanwhile Nitish had dropped a hint on Monday said that he was not against Yoga day but he don’t like publicity stunts.
The Nitish government has always distanced itself from celebrating Yoga day.

“I would have been happier if Nitish government would have celebrated the day. Yoga always connects people ” Ravi Shankar said.
