Narendra Modi and Nitish Kumar
After Amit Shah’s visit, the political activity in Bihar has intensified on Sunday. Amit Shah appeared aggressive against Nitish and Lalu Prasad, but BJP’s love for JDU has completely ended in Bihar politics and its constituents, including BJP, are not ready to accept in hushed tones. This situation is also present in RJD and JDU. While a section of RJD is not ready to fully trust Nitish Kumar, JDU MLAs and councilors also seem to be confused about the future politics of JDU.
Obviously, Amit Shah may have come out roaring to energize his workers according to the current circumstances, but no party is completely ready to accept that the door of BJP regarding Nitish Kumar is completely closed. A big reason for this is that Nitish Kumar’s attachment towards PM Modi is still visible. Apart from this, he avoids attacking top leaders including PM Modi.
What is the special strategy of BJP?
Amit Shah is continuously touring Bihar to ensure BJP’s victory. In Amit Shah’s speeches, talking about exaggerating the numbers of Yadavs and Muslims is being considered as an attempt to mobilize all the castes against these two castes who have been raising questions about showing their low numbers after the caste survey. .
Obviously, BJP is trying to gather non-Yadavs including EBC on the basis of this issue. That is why Amit Shah has tried to put Nitish Kumar in the dock by alleging that Yadavs and Muslims were counted in higher numbers in the Jungle Raj caste survey due to pressure from Lalu Prasad.
Amit Shah is working on a strategy to win 30 Lok Sabha seats out of 40 at any cost. Therefore, based on caste mobilization, they are attacking both Nitish and Lalu Prasad harshly as per the current circumstances.
PM Modi’s attachment to Nitish can change the game
According to sources, Amit Shah’s harshness is in line with the sentiments of the workers, but PM Modi’s special attachment towards Nitish Kumar can change the whole game at any time and this matter is discussed from time to time among the constituent parties including BJP. Obviously, BJP leaders believe that Nitish’s hyperactivity and competition to take credit for himself while distributing appointment letters to teachers is an indication that Nitish is trying to regain his lost political support base. Therefore, whether it is a question of giving jobs or conducting a caste survey, Nitish is trying to maintain his relevance in the politics of Bihar. Therefore, be it the caste survey or the issue of providing jobs, Nitish himself wants to take full credit for it, which has been made clear by his statements and his photographs alone in the hoardings put up outside Gandhi Maidan.
According to a BJP leader, Nitish’s current attitude and hyperactivity on many issues is pointing in many directions, but it is certain that whether Nitish will do it after the Lok Sabha elections or before, he is in the mood to play one more game so that once again in Bihar Then there remains every possibility of political upheaval.
Why are PM Modi and Nitish avoiding direct attacks on each other?
After the way Nitish Kumar came with BJP in the year 2017, a section of RJD is not ready to trust Nitish Kumar and JDU as a trusted partner. According to an RJD leader, both RJD and JDU are with each other as per convenience but RJD is not going to take the risk of completely trusting Nitish.
A section of RJD believes that by making Congress’s attitude an issue, Nitish can unite many such leaders who are ready to work towards adopting anti-BJP and anti-Congress stand. Obviously, leaders like Sudhakar Singh or Jagdanand Singh in RJD do not accept the merger of RJD and JDU. Many RJD leaders believe that if Nitish Kumar is made the national president, any decision taken by him against the old stand of the party can spoil the entire political capital of RJD.
Therefore, Nitish Kumar’s attacks without directly taking the name of PM Modi or making statements pointing towards Delhi indicates that a possibility is being kept open. This is the reason why a leader like Prashant Kishor talking about keeping skylights and windows open and talking about Nitish Kumar’s reversal once again is an indication towards the next politics of Nitish which Nitish has been trying till now.
Why is Nitish surrounded by questions?
Many experts believe that Nitish Kumar is an engineer, hence, like mathematics, he has been making better use of promotion and combination in politics. Therefore, Nitish is not going to hand over his entire political capital to Tejashwi Yadav so easily, which a section of RJD is heard talking about in the name of uniting the socialists.
In the India alliance, Congress has special love for RJD and Nitish Kumar is unhappy with not offering anything to Nitish Kumar. There is a lack of confidence even within the RJD regarding the fact that Nitish Kumar will hand over power to Tejashwi in 2025 after the 2024 Lok Sabha elections. Obviously, whenever Nitish tries to tell Tejashwi about the future, many RJD leaders consider it to be nothing but an illusion.
Question of graceful exit also
There is also the question of Nitish Kumar’s graceful exit and political experts are not ready to believe that he will be ready to leave power if he does not get the role of his choice at the Centre. Dr. Sanjay Kumar, an analyst who keeps a close eye on the politics of Bihar, says that Nitish Kumar’s sudden move from going to the party office to going to a minister’s house is a sign of his restlessness. Obviously, Nitish is trying to play another bet which depends on the outcome of the Lok Sabha elections.
Be it the issue of war between Israel and Hamas by JDU or the sharp comments made by some RJD leaders on Hindu scriptures, JDU’s different opinion on such issues shows that Nitish wants to maintain his relevance and identity separate from RJD. Have been. In such a situation, there is a constant state of doubt among the leaders of RJD, BJP and JDU about what will be the next political decision of Nitish Kumar.
The PM’s expression of special love for CM Nitish in the G-20 meeting and Nitish Kumar’s acceptance of it is being considered as a door to new possibilities. During the President’s visit to Bihar, Nitish Kumar had put RJD in a dilemma by talking about his everlasting relationship with BJP leaders, while Congress leaders had forced RJD to speak against his statement by saying that they would not give a university. Was. Due to these reasons, Nitish Kumar is constantly under doubt and he may say Tata Bye Bye to RJD sometime, political pundits are not able to deny this.
