Kumar, however, also added and raised a caveat by saying that if the opposition doesn’t join hands, they know what will happen, implying that the result will likely be favorable to the BJP.

While speaking at the 11th General Convention in Patna, Kumar also said that he is not eyeing to become the Prime Minister and also said that he neither believes that he is a contender for the post.
