Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar has said it was “stupid” of him to enter an alliance with the BJP in 2017 after parting ways four years earlier, and stressed that as long as Janata Dal United (JDU) exists, there will be “no compromise” with the BJP.

He was addressing party leaders at the JDU’s national council meeting in Patna yesterday, a month after he walked out of the alliance with BJP and joined forces with Tejashwi Yadav’s Rastriya Janata Dal (RJD) and the Congress to form a new government.
