NEW DELHI: Downplaying Janata Dal (United)’s claim that the only option to take on Narendra Modi is Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, Congress leader Raj Babbar on Friday said it is only party vice-president Rahul Gandhi’s simplicity, which can defeat the former the Prime Minister.

Babbar told ANI, “If anyone can defeat Modi ji, it is Rahul Gandhi’s simplicity.”

Earlier in the day, JD (U) leader Sanjay Singh told ANI that the Bihar Chief Minister will be the best alternative to take on Prime Minister Modi.     

“Opposition should come together in order to create alternative against Prime Minister Modi and that alternative will be Nitish Kumar,” Singh told ANI.

 After the BJP’s stupendous performance in the recently-held assembly elections, the central leadership has asked leaders and legislators to gear up for the 2019 general election.

BJP president Amit Shah has reportedly asked his party leaders to be ready for the Lok Sabha elections and asserted that the recent victories were an outcome of people’s vote against casteism, family rule and corruption, and in favour of Prime Minister Modi’s leadership.
