PATNA: Former MP Anand Mohan, accompanied by his wife Lovely Anand, on Wednesday met CM Nitish Kumar at the latter’s residence, triggering speculations. Lovely is currently with the RJD while their son Chetan Anand is an RJD legislator from Sheohar seat.
Mohan, however, claimed it was just a courtesy meeting and that no political meaning should be taken out of that. “There is nothing like joining the JD(U). It was only a courtesy meeting as we keep meeting at regular intervals,” Mohan told the media after meeting Nitish at the latter’s official residence.
Replying to a media query, he didn’t reject the idea of contesting elections. “When we are in politics, then what is the question of not contesting elections?” Mohan told reporters on being asked if he would contest the Lok Sabha polls.
The meeting assumes significance in the light of “souring relations” between him and the RJD. The bitterness grew after Mohan threatened to pull out the tongue of RJD’s Rajya Sabha Member Manoj Jha after he read out a poem composed by Om Prakash Valmiki in the Rajya Sabha during a debate on the Women’s Reservation Bill. RJD chief Lalu Prasad strongly disapproved of his remarks.
Amid such differences prevailing between the two, Nitish visited Mohan’s native village Panchgachhia in Saharsa district in October to unveil a statue of his grandfather and uncle, both freedom fighters. Addressing a function on this occasion, the CM gave freehand to Mohan to do whatever he wanted. “Do whatever you want. There is no problem,” Nitish had told Mohan, assuring all support to him.
