Political stir in Bihar is intensifying, the suspense remains whether the BJP-JDU alliance will survive or break in the state. JDU has called a meeting of its leaders (MLAs and MPs) today regarding the NDA alliance in Bihar. This meeting is to be held from 11 am. MPs and MLAs have started arriving for this meeting to be held at the CM residence in Patna.
According to NDTV, Home Minister Amit Shah spoke to Nitish Kumar on the phone on Monday morning. However, despite Amit Shah’s call, there has been no leniency in JDU’s attitude.
Even before the crucial meeting of JDU leaders in Bihar, Congress, Jitan Ram Manjhi’s Hindustani Awam Morcha (Hum) and CPI ML have announced unconditional support to Nitish Kumar.
There is a possibility that after breaking the alliance with BJP in Bihar, JDU will form the government along with RJD, Congress and some independent MLAs. Because RJD and Congress have also asked all their MLAs to stay in Patna.
According to sources, BJP is also waiting for the decision of Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar.
The top leadership of the BJP has asked the party leaders to refrain from making any statements regarding the developments in Bihar. Bihar BJP leaders have discussed with Nitish Kumar.
In the 2020 Bihar assembly elections, Rashtriya Janata Dal won 79 seats and Indian National Congress 19 seats. While Jitan Ram Manjhi Hum got 4 seats.
In Bihar political crisis, all the parties under the leadership of Rashtriya Janata Dal will be in support of Nitish Kumar, but when he leaves the Bharatiya Janata Party.
