Political experts vocal on hammering emotions of Nitish is deeply annoyed with BJP damag done to his party by propping up the Chirag Paswan-led LJP. Paswan’s party won only one seat but it damaged the electoral prospects of the JD(U) in as many as 41 assembly seats.
Analysis of voting pattern Bihar election depicts JD U is in downtown? Nitish Kumar’s era is over. He is getting on in years and has been rejected by the voters with 31 seats in 243 assembly.
Remote control CM of Bihar, is in plausible emotions, show his urge to stay in power.Chirag jibes hopefully to complete term, “Tired, Politically Belittled Leader”: Prashant Kishor.
If the BJP continues with him as CM, it will not be able to consolidate its position further in future.
The mandate clearly shows that people are not happy with Nitish Kumar. His continuance as CM will have a negative impact on the BJP.
So it will be in the BJP’s self interest to have a CM from their party. Political pandits say BJP loss RJD Tejashwi Yadav ultimate gain.
The only popular leader in Bihar is Tejashwi Yadav. The BJP does not have a popular leader in the state. Nitish is on the decline and the Congress has no leader.The politics of Bihar will revolve around Tejashwi Yadav.
Will Nitish Kumar 31 seats JD U is at final end of its splintering thus final exiting mandate may not bring the State back on the development path and overall mismanagement prove lethal to Nitish kumar government.
Nitish Kumar began another term as Chief Minister of Bihar on shaky footing but retaining considerable influence among his core support base. His party, the JD(U), has 31 seats fewer than the BJP in the National Democratic Alliance (NDA). Even with 74 MLAs among the total NDA tally of 125 in the 243-member Assembly, the BJP had to concede the post of the CM to Mr. Kumar — proof of his indispensability. His command over social groups critical to the alliance remains unimpaired for now, but the inversion of the BJP-JD(U) hierarchy has triggered a new churn that is set to reframe politics in Bihar. The near-death experience of the NDA in the recent election might temper the BJP’s ambitions momentarily, but its plan to claim the pole position in Bihar will inevitably lead to tensions with its partner. By appointing two Deputy Chief Ministers, and displacing former DCM Sushil Modi who was seen as close to Mr. Kumar, the party has set the ball rolling for a more expansive role. The BJP has also kept a lion’s share of ministerial berths and significant portfolios. Two other allies, the Vikassheel Insaan Party (VIP) and Hindustani Awam Morcha (Secular), have four members each, and either party could threaten the survival of the government. Both got a berth each. Reports, left oriented national daily newspaper.
