- Rar between BJP-JDU on many fronts
- Rar in Bihar NDA due to UP elections
- How much loss to BJP due to JDU contesting alone
New Delhi: On the one hand, where the major parties are campaigning fiercely against each other in the field regarding the Uttar Pradesh assembly elections. At the same time, everyone’s eyes are now on the growing discord between Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar’s party Janata Dal United (JDU) and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). Actually, JDU is the BJP-led NDA government in Bihar. But, before the UP assembly elections, there are signs of rift between the two parties.
JDU has decided to go it alone in the UP assembly elections. Not only this, the party led by CM Nitish has opened a front against the BJP. For the UP elections, it has been decided to campaign against PM Modi, CM Yogi for his party JDU.
Amidst growing discord, JD(U) national president Lalan Singh on Saturday released the first list of 26 candidates for the UP elections in Delhi. This decision has been taken by JDU at a time when R.K., who was made Union Steel Minister from JDU quota. CP Singh was entrusted with the responsibility of negotiating with the BJP. Singh also held talks with the top BJP high commands regarding this, but they failed. Since then, JDU has finalized the list of 51 candidates for the elections. Amidst the escalating discord, RCP Singh called on Home Minister Amit Shah, Defense Minister Rajnath Singh, BJP President J. P. Nadda and Dharmendra Pradhan had put the party’s words in front of them, but the consensus could not be reached. And now JDU has decided to contest the election against BJP alone.
It is worth noting that senior JDU leader KC Tyagi had already clarified that if the party gets respectable seats, only then JDU will join hands with the BJP or any other parties. JDU national general secretary and in-charge of Uttar Pradesh K. C. Tyagi said, “We have released the list of 26 candidates contesting in the first and second phase of Uttar Pradesh elections. We have already shortlisted the names of the candidates which will be announced in due course.”
Now that JDU has decided to fight alone in the UP elections, it will only add to the impasse between the NDA government in Bihar. In fact, political pundits believe that the ongoing discord in the NDA will increase further. Because, despite being together in the government on many fronts, JDU and BJP have come face to face. At the same time, the constituents VIP and we are also seen with Nitish, while have made rhetoric against the BJP many times. Manjhi had directly attacked PM Modi in the past.
This is not a new political discord between the two parties. When JD(U) decided to contest elections with RJD after breaking ties with NDA in 2015, PM Modi attacked Nitish Kumar during Parivartan rally in Muzaffarpur saying, there is some problem in his (Nitish Kumar) DNA, because Such is not the DNA of politics. Hitting back on this, Nitish Kumar had said, “I am the son of Bihar and my DNA is like that of the people of the state.”
In the 2020 Bihar assembly elections, when JDU got only 43 seats, BJP leaders have been seen as indirect attackers on JDU and Nitish Kumar many times. The ruckus escalated when 6 MLAs of the Arunachal JDU unit took the ‘lotus’ of the BJP. Now once again there are signs of increasing discord between the two parties regarding the UP elections. Now it has to be seen how the UP elections will spoil the ‘game’ of NDA in Bihar?
