Bihar political crisis: Nitish Kumar to meet Governor after breaking alliance with BJP

In July 2017, Kumar left the Mahagathbandhan comprising of RJD, Congress, and other parties to join hands with the BJP, and continued as chief minister.  

After ending the alliance with the BJP, JD(U) leader and Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar is set to meet Governor Phagu Chauhan on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, the JD(U) and the Opposition RJD MLAs, reportedly, held separate meetings in Patna sparking speculations of a possible alliance between the two parties after Kumar snapped ties with BJP.

In 2015, JD(U) contested and won assembly polls in alliance with RJD. In July 2017, Kumar left the Mahagathbandhan comprising of RJD, Congress, and other parties to join hands with the BJP and continued as chief minister.

Earlier, eaders from the Nitish Kumar-led party dismissed the speculations and said that today’s meeting with the MLA's was 'nothing out of the ordinary'.

“Our party had held many such meetings of MPs and MLAs in the past. We have been told that the current meeting has been called to discuss organisational matters. Never heard about any major crisis in the NDA,” Rajya Sabha MP Ram Nath Thakur told PTI.

There are also reports of the BJP holding a meeting at Deputy Chief Minister Tarkishor Prasad’s residence.

The meetings have been called following a phone conversation that Nitish reportedly had with Congress president Sonia Gandhi. JD(U) leaders were said to have spoken to RJD leader Tejashwi Prasad Yadav earlier.
