Chandy should get another term: Nitish Kumar

Kozhikode (Kerala), May 7 (IANS) Bihar Chief Minister and JD(U) president Nitish Kumar on Saturday urged the people of Kerala to ensure that Oommen Chandy is given a second term as chief minister.


“To take forward the development agenda of Kerala, Chandy should get another term,” Nitish Kumar, who is in the state to take part in his party’s campaign for assembly elections, told reporters here.

The JD(U) or Janata Dal (United) is a minor constituent of United Democratic Front (UDF) that Chandy’s Congress leads.

In the outgoing Kerala assembly, the JD(U) has two legislators including M.V. Shreyams Kumar, the son of state party chief M.P. Veerendra Kumar.

Nitish Kumar criticised the Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) for not joining the ‘grand alliance’ in Bihar in last year’s assembly polls and also attacked the wrong policies of the BJP, which he said are detrimental to secular Kerala.

Chandy had taken part in Nitish Kumar’s swearing in as chief minister of Bihar last year.

Kerala votes on May 16 to elect its 14th legislative assembly.
