Nitish launches JD(U)’s Delhi unit; likely to contest civic polls 4.12.2016 DNA: India
Bihar Chief Minister and JD(U) president Nitish Kumar on Saturday launched the party’s Delhi unit with a view to expanding the party’s base outside Bihar and “making it a national party again.” “We all know that the Janata Dal was a national party which got divided into several factions. But it is JD (U) which has carried forward its ideals. If I have any national ambition, it is to make our party regain its national stature once again,” the Bihar CM said in the Capital on Saturday.

Despite murmurs against his stand, Nitish backs demonetization 3.12.2016 deccanherald.com
Unmindful of murmurs in the opposition over his stand on demonetisation, Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar today maintained his support to the exercise, asserting that he will back any attack on corruption irrespective of party affiliations. Often seen as a possible opposition candidate for prime ministership in 2019 Lok Sabha polls, he said no serious attempt is currently being made to bring together non-BJP parties. A grand alliance of the opposition parties at the national level is certain to win the elections but no such scene was in sight, he said. He asserted there is no problem in the ruling grand alliance in Bihar and mocked speculation about his growing proximity with BJP, saying he would not offer denial on all kinds of reports as denial is 50 per cent confirmation. Kumars strong support to notebandi, which has riled leaders like TMC chief Mamata Banerjee, came at a meeting organised by his party JD(U) and later at HT Leadership Summit even as another top leader of his party Sharad Yadav ...

Nitish tells party demonetization is good, Sharad differs 3.12.2016 deccanherald.com
Amid growing protest by opposition against demonetization, Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar today again voiced support to the Modi governments decision, saying it is a positive step which will lead to benefits. "This notebandi is a positive step which will lead to benefits. It will happen," he said addressing a JD(U) meeting, where differences in the party came in the open as former party chief Sharad Yadav targeted the Modi dispensation over demonetization. Terming corruption and black money as a big sin and a "festering wound" which must be eradicated, Kumar said, "Severe steps will have to be taken. That is why we offered our support to this (demonetization). It is a positive beginning."
