Meeting of NDA government led by Nitish Kumar held today

Meeting of NDA government led by Nitish Kumar held today
BJP asserts itself by naming Nitish’s bugbears as deputy CMs

In November 2020, Nitish Kumar was unhappy with BJP’s choice of Tarkishore Prasad and Renu Devi as the two deputy CMs in the NDA coalition. IBJP’s choice of Prasad and Devi seemed to disregard Nitish’s known preference for Sushil Modi, who had thrice served as his deputy. The selection of deputy CMs this time by BJP — Samrat Choudhary and Vijay Kumar Sinha — suggests that it has decided not to be awed by sensitivities, which have been a major factor in BJP-JD(U) equations for decades, yet again. Choudhary and Sinha, in their previous roles as chief of the state unit and leader of opposition respectively, would consistently rile Nitish, showing an aggression that their senior colleagues did not towards Bihar’s longest-serving CM.

‘What is the guarantee’: DMK leader RS Bharathi on Bihar CM Nitish Kumar’s allegiance to NDA

After Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar ended his 18-month ruling alliance with Lalu Prasad Yadav’s Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) and Congress on Sunday and rejoined the NDA, DMK leader RS Bharathi said that there was no guarantee that he would continue in the NDA alliance till the Lok Sabha polls.DMK leader RS Bharathi said, “What is the guarantee that Nitish will continue as part of NDA alliance till the Parliament elections? Let us wait and see.”Congress leader Acharya Pramod Krishnam said that Nitish Kumar was like the founder of the INDIA alliance and it was very sad that he left the alliance.

“Nitish Kumar has left the INDIA alliance, it is very sad for us. He was like the captain of the alliance. We need to think about why this situation happened. There should be action against those leaders who were coordinating the alliance. They must have been inefficient to brief Congress leader Rahul Gandhi and Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge,” he added.

Complete betrayal of trust and the people of Bihar: Jairam Ramesh

On Nitish Kumar joining NDA, Congress MP Jairam Ramesh says, “Nitish Kumar called a meeting. 18 parties were present in Patna. The meeting was held in Bengaluru, Mumbai. Nitish Kumar was present in all the meetings. He didn’t give any hint (that he would break ties with the INDIA alliance). It is a matter of regret that he left our hands at the last moment, this is a complete betrayal of trust and the people of Bihar will answer him soon for this (betrayal). ”

PM post nowhere in sight with INDIA, CM chair at risk from RJD

Dreams can be dangerous sometimes. For instance, the non-realisation of Bihar CM Nitish Kumar’s prime ministerial dream has triggered a storm in state politics once again with the JD(U) chief breaking away from the Grand Alliance to be part of NDA.

Fear of losing more allies now haunts anti-BJP bloc

Despite the claim by the opposition bloc that the exit of the “unreliable” Nitish Kumar was no loss at all, there was little the anti-BJP camp could to assuage concerns that it had heavily undercut attempts to mount a national alternative to BJP.

The first Cabinet meeting of the NDA government led by Nitish Kumar is to be held at 11 am in Patna, today.

Congress was trying to sideline the regional parties: JD(U) leader Neeraj Kumar

JD(U) leader Neeraj Kumar when asked about Bihar CM Nitish Kumar’s decision to return to BJP-led NDA said, “Nitish Kumar played a key role in the formation of the INDIA alliance. He had clearly said that the opposition alliance cannot take place without Congress. However, Congress was trying to sideline the regional parties. They were neither organising a rally, nor working on a common minimum programme.”

Caste survey, raise in quota force BJP to embrace Nitish Kumar

There may be several theories doing the rounds as to why the BJP finally decided to embrace CM Nitish Kumar, when the saffron party had closed its doors on him. However, the two factors have overriding influence that forced the BJP to get back at Nitish and forge an alliance with his party JD(U), again.

One of the two factors is that the Ayodhya temple issue developed its own fatigue after the Supreme Court verdict in 2019 that the Ram temple could be constructed. Then, the consecration of Ram Lalla’s idol performed by PM Narendra Modi on January 22 this year did not percolate much beyond the charmed circle of the saffron party, in particular, and the upper castes, in general.

Bihar’s Nitish Kumar-led NDA govt formed after many ifs and buts

BJP choice of its state party chief Samrat Choudhary and former Speaker Vijay Kumar Sinha as the second and third in the hierarchy after the CM in the new cabinet formation set the tongues wagging in political circles of the state.

The BJP leaders likely to become deputy CMs have been known as bitter critics of Nitish to the extent that Samrat had vowed not to remove his turban until they dislodged him as the CM.

Congress President Kharge Condemns Bihar CM Kumar’s Exit from INDIA Bloc Amidst Probe Agency Notices

Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge on Monday in a veiled attack on Bihar Chief Minister Kumar stated that the latter walked out of the INDIA bloc in the wake of the Central probe agencies serving notice to opposition leaders.Continuing his attack, Kharge said, “If such cowardly people remain (in politics), how will the constitution and democracy survive?Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge said this while addressing the Workers’ Convention in Bhubaneshwar, Odisha.”They are giving (ED) notice to each and everyone, to scare them, to threaten them; if they do not leave their friendship, then we will see, out of fear, that someone is leaving their friendship, someone is leaving their party, someone is leaving their alliance.

If such cowardly people remain, then will this country survive, will this constitution survive, and will this democracy survive? That is why this is your last chance to give your vote; after this, there will be no voting, Kharge said.Kharge went ahead to warn the people of the country that this year will be the last opportunity for them to save democracy.

But we are not afraid,” Kharge said, addressing the Workers Convention in Dehradun, Uttarakhand.
