Why didn’t BJP try to stop Bihar CM Nitish Kumar from leaving NDA alliance?

NDA’s ally and Janata Dal (United) supremo Nitish Kumar on Tuesday broke off ties with the Bharatiya Janata Party once again to form an alliance with his political opponent Lalu Prasad Yadav’s Rashtriya Janata Dal, paving the way for a ‘Mahagathbandhan 2.0’ ahead of the 2024 Lok Sabha elections.

However, political analysts say there is a major difference between Nitish’s exit from the NDA during 2013 and now in 2022.

The JD(U) supremo breaking alliance with the BJP in 2013 and now in 2022 is enough to tell what and how much the former still holds relevance as a leader in the politics of Bihar?

In 2013, Nitish Kumar had left the BJP following his protests against the then Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi but at that time instead of resigning from the Chief Minister’s post, he had dismissed the then Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Kumar Modi, including all the ministers from the BJP quota, from his government. At that time the BJP had said that the JD(U) leader left the NDA alliance in a haste.

But in 2022, Nitish Kumar’s exit from the NDA is extremely clear. What political decision would he take was predicted in the political circles for a long time?

BJP leaders were fully aware this time that the JD(U) supremo was going to leave the NDA alliance in Bihar but it was quite surprising that the saffron party did not make any effort to persuade him from leaving the NDA alliance.

On Monday, sources from the JD(U) planted news reports that a senior BJP leader had spoken to Nitish Kumar before him breaking away from the NDA alliance. However, these reports were immediately denied by the BJP.

This time the BJP did not try to persuade the Bihar Chief Minister for several reasons since the former felt that the latter had already made up his mind to expand his political ambitions in national politics and for this he had to seek help and join hands with Lalu Prasad Yadav in Bihar and the Congress in New Delhi.

According to the BJP, the popularity of Nitish Kumar has reduced considerably in Bihar during the last few years.

A top Bihar BJP leader says that the results of the 2020 Bihar Assembly elections have proved that Nitish Kumar’s sway on the people of the state has reduced and the people is now looking at the BJP as an alternative party to JD(U).

A BJP leader went a step further while criticising the Bihar Chief Minister, saying that the latter was harming the interests of Bihar due to his political ambitions, selfishness and stubbornness.

Considering the future political prospects and Nitish’s stubborness, the BJP leaders did not make any effort to persuade Nitish Kumar to remain in the NDA alliance and save the coalition government in Bihar.

However, it is evident from the political statements made by Union Ministers Giriraj Singh and Ashwini Choubey and Bihar BJP President Sanjay Jaiswal, including other party leaders that the BJP is going to campaign in Bihar on a mass level and will come up with a strategy to take revenge from Nitish Kumar.

  1. Prashant Kishore went to Bihar in Feb 22. He wanted to start his own political party and had ambitions. A plan was hatched so that Nitish could try for PM. Slowly all anti-Hindu parties started aligning to this plan. Nitish met RJD leaders in 3 Iftar parties in April and discussions went fruitful. The first joint sabotage of these anti-Hindu parties was “Agniveer” protests. In the last 2 years, Center funded many schemes in Bihar but that money was looted by Nitish and hence when the question arose as to why no development is seen in Bihar, Nitish blinked. The enquiry into a Bridge collapse (10 May 22), Nitish replied that it was due to wind and shielded the corrupt officers. This clearly showed Nitish’s attitude towards looting center’s money with no development in Bihar. BJP leader Nitin Gadkari objected to this as his Dept. was being tarnished. Hence BJP decided to let go Nitish. It is better way.

  2. Best part happened in Bihar as Nitesh left NDA, liability to BJP for 2 decades, he can never beat laloo & co….day dreaming of PM only to loose bihar, BJP to plan correct strategy to defeat Nitesh ghatbandhan in 2024 and later in Assy…which will happen, good luck BJP workers .
