Bihar CM Nitish Kumar unsubscribes BJP-led NDA again

IBNS | @indiablooms | 09 Aug 2022, 01:53 pm

Patna/IBNS: In his yet another political somersault, Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar Tuesday quit the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA), throwing open the gates for the Grand Alliance 2.0 in the eastern state, media reports said.

Nitish, who heads the Janata Dal (United), is expected to meet Governor Phagu Chauhan at 4 pm.

The senior politician, who held a party meeting this morning, has already sought time from the Governor.

The Congress along with the single largest party Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD), which is now steered by jailed former Chief Minister Lalu Prasad Yadav's son Tejashwi, have already expressed their readiness to stitch the Grand Alliance 2.0.

As per some reports, Nitish has already spoken to Congress president Sonia Gandhi.

Reports also say Nitish's stance is prompted by the BJP's activeness in expanding its footprint in the state where the saffron party has long played a second fiddle.

In the 2020 assembly elections, Nitish got back his Chief Ministerial post with much credit to the BJP which had won more seats than its alliance partner.

In the 2015 state polls, the JDU, RJD and Congress together fought and won over the BJP, whose campaign was driven by Modi.
