Nitish Kumar Gearing Up for Ninth Term as Bihar’s Chief Minister

News sources from Reader Wall indicate that Nitish Kumar is preparing to assume the role of Bihar’s Chief Minister for an impressive ninth term. His ascendancy is propelled by the support of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), following a course charted in the 2020 elections. Unconfirmed reports suggest that Kumar is moving away from the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) to align formally with BJP. Anticipations are that instead of Kumar stepping down, BJP could rejuvenate the Bihar cabinet, replacing RJD minsters with their own MLAs.

Political Tensions and Speculations Rise

In light of this political rumbling, there have been numerous transfers of officers, spawning heightening uncertainty. There are widespread speculations of an imminent government change that could overshadow the current ruling coalition, the ‘Mahagathbandhan’.

In anticipation, an inflamed interest has spurred a meeting by the BJP of its MPs and MLAs, ostensibly to contemplate on strategies for the forthcoming Lok Sabha polls. Although Samrat Chaudhary, the State unit chief, casually dismissed speculations of a renewed alliance with Kumar, other BJP leaders have subtly indicated ongoing discussions behind-the-scenes.

Anticipations of Extensive Relocations

Reports from Reader Wall suggest that Kumar has called a Legislative party meeting, reputedly tomorrow. It’s widely held that extensive relocations of district magistrates are being implemented within Bihar, further fuelling rumors of an impending shift in government.

Speculation was further triggered following Kumar’s solo appearance at yesterday’s Republic Day tea ceremony at Raj Bhavan, without his Deputy, Tejashwi Yadav. This offers a hint at potential growing tensions between Janata Dal (United) and the RJD, who have called for a meeting of their legislators.

Possible Realignment in Bihar’s Political Landscape

Sources indicate that the Congress party and Nitish Kumar’s Janata Dal (United), partners within the opposing INDIA bloc, have called a meeting in Purnea. They have however denied any association with this evolving political landscape. Their purported goal is to discuss preparing for Rahul Gandhi’s ‘Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra,’ which is lined up to enter Bihar on Monday, with scheduled public meetings in Kishanganj, Purnea, and Katihar.

While the immediate focus revolves around the Lok Sabha elections, circumstances indicate that staging a comprehensive realignment in Bihar’s political structure could be in the offing. In this context, both BJP and JD(U) are reaching out to their respective MPs and MLAs in efforts to crystallize their strategies.

A Complicated Alliance

The maneuver to bring Kumar back into the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) is not straightforward. Reader Wall sources suggest that this delicate operation includes the nomination of an Assembly Speaker and a complete cabinet reshuffle.

Ex-CM Jitan Ram Manjhi and his Hindustan Awam Morcha, part of this political chess game, have been sought after by the BJP for a strategic alliance.

Political Journey Reflecting Dynamic Politics

The political voyage of Kumar, once associated with stability and development, has become a narrative of unpredictability and alliances. From being the much-lauded ‘Sushashan Babu’ to the elusive “Paltu Kumar,” his career path mirrors the fluid dynamics of Bihar’s political landscape.
