Nitish Kumar

The quick development in Bihar, where CM Nitish Kumar leaving BJP and joining hands with RJD-Congress has vindicated the political line of Telangana CM K Chandrasekhar Rao (KCR). Nitish on August 9, Monday left BJP alliance and is about forming a government with RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav, Congress and 4 other parties. This new combine has full majority in 243 member Bihar Assembly.

Nitish, leader of JD(U) became CM with the help of BJP in October 2020. Nitish won 43 MLAs while BJP won 74 MLAs.  Tejashwi Yadav’s RJD won 75 seats and his alliance partners Congress won 19, and CPI(ML) Liberation 12 seats. Bihar Assembly has MLAs from as many as 13 parties. The new government of Nitish will include 6 of them. Recently, AIMIM’s 4 out of total 5 MLAs joined RJD.

This stand of Nitish Kumar is in line with the argument of KCR who has been opposing BJP for sometime. KCR recently met Tejashwi in Delhi and both agreed to work against Narendra Modi led BJP in the national politics. The removal of BJP as a ruling coalition partner in Bihar must be a sweet music to KCR’s ears.

The recent exit of RCP Singh from the Union Cabinet as the sole representative of JD(U) is the cause of the trouble in Bihar. Nitish refused to renominate his bitter critic Singh to Rajya Sabha again, thus causing his exit from the Modi government. Nitish started believing that BJP is trying to weaken him further and capture power after 2024 Lok Sabha elections.

In 2020, BJP though it has more numbers made Nitish the CM, as part of coalition dharma. But, Nitish has become powerless as most of his decisions are rejected by BJP. 71 year old Nitish has become a small figure in Bihar poiltics, as 32 year old Tejashwi Yadav is emerging as a major force in the Opposition camp. 

Nitish is expected to move over to the national politics soon and hand over power to Tejashwi Yadav as CM. This will be good news to the Opposition camp, which is reeling under humiliation after the fall of Uddhav Thackeray led MVA government in Maharashtra. Overnight, BJP has lost a major state like Bihar and Opposition got one. BJP on Monday made it clear that it will go it alone in next LS elections in Bihar.
