A choice on whether Nitish Kumar would get another term as Bihar’s Chief Minister will be announced today after a legislators’ conference of the National Democratic Alliance, which won majority in the just recently concluded assembly elections in the state.

Despite guarantees from the BJP that Nitish Kumar would retain the post, the disappointing efficiency of his Janata Dal United has put a question on it.

The other consider the scenario is Chirag Paswan, an NDA ally whose rebellion versus Mr Kumar’s management and subsequent solo contest had cut into the JD( U) votes. With the BJP not doing anything to include him, critics said his disobedience had the implied support of the celebration.
Concerns are now being raised about whether Mr Paswan – who was batting for a “Nitish-Mukt Bihar (NItish-free Bihar) – would continue to stay part of the ruling combine in the state.
The BJP, ahead of the election, said anybody not accepting Nitish Kumar’s leadership would not be considered part of the NDA.
The BJP’s inaction had extremely upset Mr Kumar who revealed his bitterness after the election, saying, “It depends on the BJP to decide fate of those who cut votes”.
On Thursday, the opposition’s Tejashwi Yadav– whose Rashtriya Janata Dal turned out to be the single biggest celebration with 75 seats– took a swipe at Mr Kumar, saying the voters made it clear that they wanted modification.
” See where Nitish Kumar’s glow has gone. He has actually been pressed to the 3rd position. This is a required for change,” he had stated.
