The signal to Kumar comes at a time when the UPA is seeking support to pass key bills in the coming session of Parliament.

The Congress, however, held that this one-off decision did not indicate any eagerness for an alliance with JD(U). “We do not want communal forces to succeed so we gave unconditional support,” Congress spokesperson PC Chacko said.

Congress’ new Bihar in-charge CP Joshi held parleys with senior leaders. Former minister Shakeel Ahmad explained why the party should not abstain during trust-vote.
