, 3:17 PM IST

The former Supreme court Judge of India Markandey Katju has batted for Mr Nitish Kumar, the present CM of Bihar, as the next Prime Minister of India with Arvind Kejariwal as Deputy Prime Minister.

He gave his comment on his Facebook page today. He told that ‘I have been critical of our politicians, but as long as the system lasts in India we have to seek the best’.

In my opinion the next Prime Minister of India should be Nitish Kumar, with Arvind Kejriwal as his Deputy Prime Minister, said Mr Katju.

He justified his opinion by saying that he is saying so because he has not heard anything against the personal integrity of these two, even though he has sometimes been critical of them.

Mr Katju told that however, it is for the people of India to judge and decide who should be the next Prime Minister of the country.

It may be noted here that the talk of Nitish Kumar as next PM has been making news of late since he talked as making anti BJP front to fight the next general election.

Mr Kumar has been recently elected as the national president of JDU replacing Sharad Yadav.
