Kumar, who is also the president of the JD(U), took a dig at rival BJP leaders and said, “A few persons do not have faith on anything … giving statements after ‘misinterpreting’ every issue has become their habit.”

“Whosoever is found responsible for the dastardly act would be punished sternly,” he said.

Replying to another question on the upcoming Rajya Sabha poll, Kumar said, “JD(U) will contest for two seats of the Rajya Sabha and as many of state Legislative Council.”

He, however, said the names of candidates would be declared later.

Five JD(U) members of the Upper House from Bihar, including Sharad Yadav, K C Tyagi, RCP Singh, Pavan Varma and Gulam Rasool Balyawi, are retiring in July.

As per the results of the recent Bihar poll, the JD(U) and the RJD can send two members each to the Rajya Sabha, while BJP can gain one seat from the state.
