In an exclusive interview to News18, RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav revealed the details of alleged back channel lobbying by Bihar CM Nitish Kumar to join the Mahagathbandhan if the coalition declared him the PM candidate in Lok Sabha Election. Tejashwi claimed that Nitish used his close confidant, Prashant Kishore, to convince the RJD chief Lalu Prasdad Yadav into agreement. He further alleged that Nitish Kumar said that he will return favours by making Tejaswi Yadav as Chief Minister of Bihar in 2020 assembly elections. Nitish Kumar had parted ways with RJD a few years ago and joined BJP to form a coalition government in Bihar.
