Akhilesh Yadav Accuses Congress for Political Uncertainty in Bihar

The Samajwadi Party (SP) chief and ex-Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister, Akhilesh Yadav, recently attributed the political instability in Bihar and the increasing discord within the INDIA bloc to Congress’s lack of action. This news comes from the primary source at Reader Wall.

Interview Highlights

In his interactions with the media, Yadav expressed his belief that the political crisis in Bihar could have been avoided had Congress shown some initiative. He expressed disappointment at speculation that Nitish Kumar might be planning to join the NDA.

“Nitish Kumar should remain with the INDIA bloc. After all, he was instrumental in creating the INDIA alliance,” said Yadav in the interview.

Spin-off from Alliance

There is widespread speculation that Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar is planning to leave the INDIA bloc and rejoin the NDA alliance. Several NDA leaders, including the former Bihar CM Jitan Ram Manjhi, have suggested that an alliance break between JD(U)-RJD is inevitable.

In the past, Kumar had partnered with RJD, founded by his one-time adversary Lalu Prasad, in August 2022. This alliance was formed after a fallout with the BJP, which Kumar accused of attempting to cause a split within the JD(U). This led to Kumar’s drive to unite all parties nationwide against BJP, resulting in the formation of the opposition bloc INDIA.

Potential Repercussions

If Nitish Kumar decides to leave the alliance, it will be the fourth time he has switched sides in Bihar politics. The current Bihar Assembly consists of 243 members. RJD leads with 79 MLAs, followed by the BJP’s 78, JD(U)’s 45, Congress’s 19, the CPI (M-L)’s 12, two each from the CPI(M) and CPI, the Hindustani Awam Morcha (Secular)’s four seats, and the AIMIM’s one, plus one Independent legislator.


The future of Bihar’s political landscape appears uncertain with escalating speculations regarding potential alliance shifts. As party leaders continue to exchange blame for the turmoil, the people of Bihar await a stable political climate. These developments were first reported by our news source, the Reader Wall.
