Why didn't BJP try to stop Bihar CM Nitish Kumar from leaving NDA alliance?
NDA's ally and Janata Dal (United) supremo Nitish Kumar on Tuesday broke off ties with the Bharatiya Janata Party once again to form an alliance with his political opponent Lalu Prasad Yadav's Rashtriya Janata Dal, paving the way for a 'Mahagathbandhan 2.0' ahead of the 2024 Lok Sabha elections.

Nitish quits NDA, joins hands with RJD to form govt
Kumar led the government after the 2020 election as the BJP honoured his pre-poll projection as the NDA's chief ministerial candidate, even as it had won 74 seats in the 243-seat assembly while Kumar's Janata Dal (United) was a distant third with 43 seats.

Bihar: Focus to shift to CM's style of functioning, Tejashwi's promises
Another challenge for the new government will be tackling the illicit liquor trade which has been flourishing despite prohibition. Yadav had been attacking the NDA government headed by Nitish over the police failure to stop the sale of illicit liquor in the state.

BJP forced to redraw Bihar strategy
BJP leaders maintained that the 2020 assembly NDA mandate was primarily for BJP than for JDU and it had diminished Kumar's stature. A senior functionary said Kumar "resented that he was upstaged by BJP in the assembly polls and submitted to mind games and internal politicking."

Bihar: Nitish Kumar's manoeuvre a boost to larger Opposition play
Amid the gloom in the opposition camp over the collapse of the MVA government of Maharashtra, the second coming of Mahagathbandhan in Bihar provides the much-needed tactical and psychological booster shot and talking points for the national opposition gallery.

Nitish Kumar and his shades of grey
Now, once again, he has turned foe to the BJP and become friends with Lalu Prasad Yadav of the rival Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD). Kumar's political career started when he won the assembly election from Harnaut (Nalanda district) in 1985 on a Lok Dal ticket.
