NEW DELHI: A JD(U) emissary was insistent when he spoke with BJP leaders in Delhi on Wednesday night: The alliance would have to be introduced promptly and the oath of office environment taken at the earliest. The JD(U)’s worry was not always because time was jogging out or panic of a legal challenge.
It was driven by the likelihood that RJD chief Lalu Prasad may buckle less than pressure and get son Tejashwi Yadav to quit as deputy CM, depriving Nitish Kumar of a valid motive to crack with his ally.
Nitish, resources said, experienced made up his head to jettison the alliance following the graft costs levelled by BJP’s Sushil Modi as perfectly as the FIR registered by CBI in opposition to Lalu, wife Rabri and Tejashwi raised the political heat in Bihar.
The swift rate of developments took even senior BJP leaders by shock and it was only all over 8 pm that get together functionaries arrived to know of what was afoot when they been given directions that get together MLAs were to achieve Nitish’s home in a demonstrate of solidarity.
There remained the likelihood of a legal challenge as RJD has the greatest number of MLAs in Bihar, but this was not a deterrent as the arithmetic of the assembly ensured that no federal government could be fashioned devoid of BJP and JD(U).
