Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Thursday denied having given any interview to a magazine to say that he will break his alliance with BJP if Gujarat chief minister Narendra Modi is made its prime ministerial candidate in the next elections.


"I never gave any interview to the magazine which has been quoted in the news," Kumar said.

He was referring to a reported interview in "The Week" magazine which had later pulled it out of its website.

JD(U) leader Sharad Yadav also dismissed the reported interview.

"I have not talked to anybody but I know him (Kumar) for so many years. He cannot make such remarks," Yadav said.
