Bihar Political Crisis: On Wednesday, poll strategist Prashant Kishor expected “political stability” to return to Bihar with the renewed RJD-JD(U) coalition. Nitish Kumar on Tuesday ended JD(U)’s alliance with the BJP and resigned, and went on to demand the formation of a new government with the backing of the opposition Grand Alliance.
“I hope political stability will return to Bihar now. Nitish Kumar said he is starting a new chapter. I hope he will fulfill the aspirations of the people of Bihar,” said Prashant Kishor who added, “ I see what is happening now in the context of the era of political instability in Bihar.Since 2013-2014, this is the 6th attempt to form a government in Bihar.The formations are changed when expectations political or administrative are not satisfied.
“The people of Bihar will expect this new formation (JD(U) and RJD) to last, and its priorities must be in line with the aspirations of the people. What to see is if so whether or not the new government will work better than the previous government,” he said.
About Tejashwi Yadav
“Tejashwi Yadav is the leader of the largest party in Bihar, and he will probably play a major role in running this new formation. People will be able to see how he is performing in this new government.”
On any impact on the 2024 elections
Kishor, once considered a close confidant of Kumar, said the impact of political developments in Bihar will remain limited to the state at present. They are unlikely to have an impact at the national level in the short term, he said. “From 2017 to 2022, he was in the BJP. But I never found it comfortable for many reasons. He may have thought it allowed us to experience Mahagatbandhan.
