Patna, Nov 14: Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar today said Rahul Gandhi was a “natural choice” to lead the Congress, but maintained it was the internal matter of the party.
“It is for the Congress to decide which assignments the party will be giving to whom and when...it is internal matter of the party,” Kumar told reporters on the sidelines of the ‘Janata Darbar' programme here.
“But it is obvious that Rahul Gandhi is a natural choice for the party,” he added.
Kumar dismissed the report that he had described Rahul as an immature politician in the past.
To another question, the Chief Minister said he was yet to know whether JD(U) would have an electoral understanding with its senior partner BJP in assembly elections in Uttar Pradesh.
“We JD(U) had an alliance with BJP in last assembly poll in Uttar Pradesh... but what will happen this time is not known to me,” he said.
Kumar said his party was doing its work in Uttar Pradesh and trying to reach out to the people.
