BJP calls Nitish to join NDA

The Bihar political game has seen a new twist. In this move, BJP President Amit Shah has given an open invitation to Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar asking him to join the National Democratic Alliance(NDA).

Earlier this week some report suggested that Nitish Kumar will leave Grand alliance and join BJP. He had expressed his intention of extending full support to Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

Janata Dal (United)’s Sharad Yadav had expressed his dislike regarding Nitish leaving the Grand Alliance and had announced that he will join hands with the Congress. He had also said that he will stand by his choice and support the RJD joining hands with the Congress through the mahagathbandhan.

In reply to this Nitish Kumar remarked that Sharad Yadav is free to decide who he wants to join. In a separate statement, he had also announced that he will meet PM Narendra Modi to talk about development and other issues of the state.

In July, Nitish Kumar had resigned as the Chief Minister of Bihar while opting to move out of the 20-month-old Grand Alliance. He was sworn in as the Chief Minister amid full support from BJP on the very next day.

Explaining his break up from the mahagathbandhan the JD(U), President, Nitish Kumar had alleged that corruption is seeping in and ruining the alliance through Lalu Yadav and his clan. He had said that he was left with no choice but to leave the Grand Alliance for that reason
