From 'dosti' to 'darar': The Nitish-Lalu saga

From 'dosti' to 'darar': The Nitish-Lalu saga”

Governor Keshari Nath Tripathi has asked Nitish to prove his majority in the Assembly by Saturday.

This is the JD-U President's second innings in the last two years.

Chief minister Nitish Kumar and deputy chief minister Sushil Kumar Modi did not take part in the voting as both are members of the Legislative Council.

"Amit Shah had earlier said if Nitish Kumar won, Pakistan would celebrate".

Kumar took the moral high ground that his conscience did not allow him to continue the alliance with RJD in the wake of corruption charges not only against Tejashwi but also against Lalu's wife Rabri and daughter Misa. These were things people had forgotten during the JD (U)-BJP rule.

The sequence of events that led to Nitish Kumar joining forces with the BJP is, essentially, politics at its finest.

Even as Nitish Kumar leaves the Mahagathbandhan, realigns with the BJP and gets sworn in again as the Bihar Chief Minister, Rashtriya Janata Dal chief Lalu Prasad Yadav said on Thursday (July 27) that he will move the Supreme Court.

Tejashwi Yadav contended that as Bihar's largest party, his Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) should be given first chance at Government formation. "Truth is that "hunger for power has overpowered" everything else", said Congress spokesperson Randeep singh Surjewala.

The Court said that the hearing is not possible before July 31.

The wily politician that Kumar is, he then swore to stop BJP's Victory March at the hustings.

Bihar CM's plea for a special category status to the state is likely to get attention from Centre after the new alliance between JD (U) & BJP. Congress and RJD are accusing Nitish of being opportunistic and breaking the trust of the people who gave him the mandate. It's shocking Nitish Kumar has joined the NDA.

In 2013, Nitish had ended his 17-year alliance with the BJP over the party's decision to name Narendra Modi its Prime Ministerial candidate.

However, the RJD is exuding confidence of defeating Nitish Kumar's trust vote as the party is hoping for a split in JD (U) ranks. He waited for the Congress, the biggest party in the opposition, to work for bringing together opposition parties for projecting a credible alternative to Narendra Modi, but the party leaders did not make any moves. In the 243-member Bihar Assembly, 131 legislators voted in favour of the new alliance and 108 against. It's a very sad day for the democracy.

The monsoon session of the state Assembly begins on Friday.

Nitish also hit back at Tejashwi and said he would not support one who indulges in corruption and accumulates income through wrong means. We have majority but were not invited by the Governor to form government.

The protesters also pelted stones on the cars of the DM and SP Anusuya Ransingh Sahu. Nitish Kumar and Lalu Prasad Yadav are poles apart in their personal standing as public leaders and their agendas of governance.

"His party only had 71 MLAs after 2015 Assembly elections".
