Bihar Political Stir: After the dramatic resignation of Nitish Kumar as Bihar Chief Minister, JD(U)'s KC Tyagi accused the Congress of attempting to hijack the leadership of the INDIA bloc, a coalition of 28 opposition forces aiming to challenge the BJP-led NDA in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections.

Blow to INDIA Bloc and Rising Differences

Nitish's exit, seen as a significant blow to the INDIA bloc, occurred amid rising differences and divergent positions on seat-sharing within the alliance. The move comes just months before the crucial general elections.

Congress Allegations and Bloc Leadership

KC Tyagi claimed that in a meeting on December 19, a conspiracy was hatched by the Congress to take leadership of the INDIA bloc, proposing Mallikarjun Kharge's name as Prime Minister. He highlighted the initial agreement to carry forward the agenda without naming a PM face.

BJP's Welcome and Political Realignments

The BJP welcomed Nitish Kumar's return to the saffron fold, deeming the RJD-JDU alliance unnatural and short-lived. BJP's Sushil Kumar Modi expressed confidence in the formation of a new government with JDU.

Nitish Kumar's Resignation and Political Turmoil

Nitish Kumar cited the deteriorating state of the 'Mahagathbandhan' formed one and a half years ago as the reason for his resignation. The political turmoil was triggered by a social media post from Lalu Yadav's daughter, Rohini Acharya.

Nitish's Saffron Shift and Reactions

Rohini Acharya, reacting to Nitish's saffron shift, remarked on X, "The trash has been consigned to the dustbin." If Nitish crosses over, it would be his fourth switch in alliances.

The unfolding political events in Bihar underscore the complex dynamics of alliances, leadership struggles, and the ever-shifting landscape of Indian politics.
