Patna: ‘Bihar is outside, Nitish Kumar is here’, this slogan has been running in the politics of the state for the last several years. It has been said that no matter who wins the elections here, only Nitish Kumar will sit on the CM’s chair. This is also true. Nitish Kumar became the Chief Minister of Bihar for the first time in the year 2000, but he could not prove his majority in the Assembly and he resigned within seven days.
After this, he sat on the chair of the head of the state from November 2005 and has been sitting since then. Although Jitan Ram Manjhi was also made the Chief Minister for some time, but the real power was in his hands. However, one thing has remained the same in these 19 years that Nitish Kumar has changed his mind many times. He has changed his partners, but he has not changed his position. Chief Minister was always prefixed to his name. Now once again it is being said that Nitish Kumar is going to change sides again. According to sources, he may once again join NDA.
Many big leaders of BJP and JDU reached Delhi
There is a tremendous stir in Patna, the capital of Bihar. Many big leaders of BJP and JDU have reached Delhi. The round of meetings has started. It is being said that Nitish Kumar may soon announce breaking the alliance with RJD and Congress and joining with NDA. However, this would not be the first time that Nitish Kumar is changing sides. He started changing his partners in the year 2013 and since then he has changed sides thrice and if he does the same this time too, it will be the fourth time.
Nitish separated from NDA in 2013
First of all he separated from NDA in the year 2013. At that time BJP had declared Narendra Modi as its Prime Ministerial candidate. Angered by this, he ended the 17 year old alliance with BJP. After this, Nitish Kumar, who was attacking RJD and Congress, formed a grand alliance with these two parties in the year 2015 and contested the elections.
Broke ties with Grand Alliance in 2017
This alliance won the elections but in the year 2017, Nitish Kumar once again changed his mind and broke this alliance after corruption allegations against Lalu Yadav and his family. He once again joined NDA. This time he contested the 2019 Lok Sabha and 2020 Assembly elections. He also got success in this. But in 2022, Nitish Kumar changed his mind again and once again separated from NDA.
