Nitish Kumar and the Politics of Bihar

 This is a clear hint for the BJP, by Nitish Kumar when he decided not to send RCP Singh to the Upper house. RCP Singh is in the Modi cabinet from the JDU. However, the decision of the Nitish Kumar not to be a part of the Central ministry certainly gave thousands of talking points to the political analyst. What will be the impact on the current JDU-BJP government led by Nitish? Is something new political formation on the way to come? On the other hand, this is just for RCP Singh to understand, that only one can be boss in one party, and in the JDU Nitish is the Supreme leader. There is much news circulating in the media about the uncomfortable relationship between Nitish and RCP. Some time ago, RCP had a free hand to run the government or party.

Ghulam Muhammad Zola had also started a separate organization Bharatiya Kisan Mazdoor Manch. During the farmers’ agitation after the violence by outsiders, when Gulam Muhammad saw the tears of Rakesh Ti

Prashant Kishor's 'Jan Suraaj' : is this an alternative politics for Bihar?

Photo- Indian express After high voltage drama by  Prashant Kishor  (PK), whether he’s joining the Congress or not, what will be his conditions? Finally, he declined the offer to join the grand old party. PK is still one of the favourite topics of Indian media, both print as well as 24 hours unstoppable TV medium. I am not able to understand how he gets this much time and space at a time when no party is being given this much time except the ruling party and their agendas. Last week, Prashant Kishor had an elaborate press conference in the state capital of Bihar, Patna, where he announced his new move. It is basically to give an  alternative political option  to the state. He announced his program and future action plan. This was surprising to me. This same man had been talking for a long time about consolidating the opposition parties for the 2024 election and quite often talked about how the opposition could defeat Modi in the upcoming national election.
