Patna: After he was not renominated for elections to the Rajya Sabha from Bihar, Shivanand Tiwari, a Rajya Sabha MP from the ruling Janata Dal-United, Wednesday said Chief Minister Nitish Kumar disliked him.


"I know Nitish Kumar does not like me," Tiwari said in a letter to state JD-U president Vashisht Narain Singh.

Tiwari said two other party Rajya Sabha MPs were also not renominated so that he could be kept out.

"In a bid to deny me a place in the Rajya Sabha, two other party MPs - N.K. Singh and Sabir Ali - were also not renominated to justify the act of leaving me out," he said.

He alleged that Nitish Kumar's offer to him to contest the Lok Sabha polls was a political strategy to defeat him.
