United States presidential candidate Hillary Clinton on Monday got support from unexpected quarters when Bihar chief minister and senior Janata Dal-United leader Nitish Kumar said that, if invited, he would send party leaders to campaign for her among the Indian community in the United States.
"In case we receive an invitation, party Rajya Sabha Member of Parliament Digvijay Singh will go there and campaign in her favour," said Kumar.
He made the statement when asked to comment on reports that he and Singh have been approached by Hillary's campaign managers.
"So far, I have not received any invitation. If invited, Singh will go since he is well versed in foreign affairs," Kumar said.
Lauding profusely the first woman aspirant for the top job in the US, he said, "I am definitely in favour of Democratic Party candidate Hillary Clinton".
