A day after backing Ram Nath Kovind's candidature for the president's post, the JD-U today said that there was no question of going back to the NDA and it continued to be an integral part of the united Opposition. "The decision to back Kovind's candidature is an isolated incident... we'll never go back to the NDA-fold again," the JD-U national spokesperson K C Tyagi told news agency PTI over phone from Delhi. Tyagi said Kovind, the ex-Governor pf Bihar, had played a positive and non-confrontational role in the functioning of the state government. During his nearly two years' tenure as the Bihar Governor, Kovind handled himself with dignity and poise and chief minister Nitish Kumar was quite impressed with the his demeanour and grace which convinced him to back his candidature for the President's post, he said.
