Confusion reigns as Nitish Kumar throws his hat in Prime ministerial circle

Tue, Apr 19, 2016, 06:09 PM
Rashtriya Janata Dal leader and former Bihar Chief Minister Lalu Prasad Yadav on Tuesday made it clear that their Prime Ministerial candidate in the 2019 elections would be Nitish Kumar only.

The friends-turned-foes-turned-friends Bihar Chief Ministers, Nitish Kumar and Lalu Prasad (former CM), are showing a new bonhomie in regard to each other after their alliance had arrested the rise and rise of the BJP and paved the way for the JD(U)-RJD alliance to come to power in the State. The Congress, which has since become a minor player in Bihar and elsewhere, had also supported the alliance.

Since the Congress has the single-point agenda of making Rahul Gandhi, party vice-president, the Prime Minister, it remains to be seen how the grand old party reacts to Nitish Kumar as Prime Minister slogan of Lalu. It also remains to be seen how the Samajwadi party will react to the Lalu-Nitish equation.

What happens to the United Progressive Alliance parties in such a situation when Nitish forges ahead for the prime ministerial position. Would they support him or Rahul Gandhi?

The situation has become interesting in the background of the slogan of `BJP-Sangh Mukt Bharat' by the Congress, Left Parties, Aam Admi party, JDU and the RJD if Nitish is highlighted. The MIM is also likely to support such a front. All these parties are determined to give a tough fight to the BJP in the 2019 poll. But, before that, would they be standing together if Nitish is projected is a big question?

The dynamic leader, Arvind Kejriwal, of Aam Admi party, is already pushing himself into the front in the opposition combination for prime ministerial position. The question arises that when he had set his sights so high, would he get along with the elderly leaders such as Mulayam Singh, Nitish Kumar and so on.

Didi Mamata Banerjee of West Bengal and Amma Jayalalithaa of AIADMK are also likely to stake their claim in case their parties fare well in the elections. So what happens to the prime ministerial position in such a situation?

Pouring cold water on all their plans, what if the people revert to Narendra Modi as the best bet for the country? Things will start unraveling after the assembly election results are out.
