If Nitish Kumar follows through on the rumored switch, it would be his second this term and his fourth in the last ten years. Amidst speculations that he would be joining the BJP-led NDA alliance, Chief Minister Nitish Kumar has caused yet another round of political unrest in the state. This is his second move this term and his fourth in the last ten years. According to multiple media reports, Kumar-led Janata Dal (United) may be sworn in as the chief minister of Bihar once more by leaving the ruling coalition with its ally Rashtriya Janata Dal and joining the BJP-led NDA.
All the parties gathered their legislators and convened meetings over the weekend as the division within the current Bihar government widened. Samarat Choudhary, the state president of the BJP, departed for Delhi to meet the party’s upper echelon to discuss the latest developments. The following are the main points regarding the latest political development in Bihar:
There is a rift in the current JDU-RJD, according to multiple media reports, and Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar may soon join the BJP-led NDA to form a new government in the state.
The JDU and RJD held separate meetings on Thursday night, adding fuel to the rumors. Former deputy chief minister of Bihar, Sushil Modi, made a comment during one of the meetings saying Nitish Kumar was never out of the BJP.
The chief minister of Bihar has recently voiced his dissatisfaction with the INDIA bloc, citing his lack of promotion to the alliance’s top leadership despite his extensive political background.
After RJD supremo Lalu Yadav’s daughter Rohini Acharya made a statement about Kumar, claiming that he is shifting his point of view as the wind changes its direction on an X post, there were many rumors of a rift between the parties and JDU. There are indications that Nitish is not at ease with RJD.
Nitish Kumar, chief minister of Bihar, Upendra Kushwaha, has cultivated an image in which people are constantly speculating about which cooperation he will be joining and when. But the indication is that Nitish is not at all at ease with RJD.
