"People of the country will not tolerate or accept a leader, whose idea and policy is divisive," Nitish Kumar told media persons here.
Nitish Kumar described Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) decision to announce Modi as its prime ministerial candidate as "Vinash kale vipreet buddhi (When we face difficult times, our thinking gets warped)".
"We had sensed it three months ago that BJP will name him its PM candidate and ended our our (JD-U) alliance with BJP," Nitish Kumar said.
Nitish Kumar snapped ties with BJP in Bihar June 16 this year after Modi was made BJP's campaign chief for the 2014 Lok Sabha elections.
