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. Tiwari said in a letter to state JD-U president Vashisht Narain Singh that, "I know Nitish Kumar does not like me." Tiwari said two other party Rajya Sabha MPs were also not renominated so that he could be kept out. He said, "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."
