Nitish keeps mum over defence scam

Nitish Kumar preferred not to make any statement on the issue related with veteran JD (U) leader George Fernandes after Central Bureau of Investigation has registered a first information report against former defence minister George Fernandes.
When a section of reporters on Tuesday night asked him to say on George Fernandes issue , Nitish Kumar reacted like a shrewd and matured leader by saying that he was not aware about the issue and not in a position to say anything right now.
After Nitish came to power in Bihar in November 2005, their relation slowly turned bitter. Early in 2006 when George Fernandes was defeated and replaced by Sharad Yadav as JD (U) president with the active help of Nitish Kumar, George Fernandes started criticising the Nitish government.
