Patna, 13th August 2022: The Chief Minister of Bihar broke the ties of his party Janata Dal United (JDU) with the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) and once again formed the government with the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) and the Congress. As soon as the side changed, there is speculation about Nitish Kumar that he may be a contender for the post of Prime Minister in 2024.
According to reports, Nitish Kumar himself is not directly admitting this, but the way he is talking about uniting the opposition, indicates that he wants to be the pivot of anti-Modi politics.
Nitish Kumar has tried to directly challenge PM Modi by saying that those who came in 2014 will stay in 2024 or not? He did not take the name of PM Modi. He also said that he is getting calls from many places and he will try to unite the opposition.
JDU chief Lalan Singh has also said that if the opposition reduces BJP’s 40 seats in Bihar, Jharkhand and Bengal, Modi can be held back from the magic figure of the majority.
Nitish Kumar’s prediction, which he made about Narendra Modi in 2003 is going viral.
While attending a government program in Kutch, Gujarat, Nitish Kumar, then the Railway Minister, said, “I sincerely hope that Narendra Bhai will not remain confined to Gujarat for a long time, the country will get his services.”
