Patna: Bihar Chief Minister and JD(U) chief Nitish Kumar, who is running his government with the support of BJP, may contest the 2019 Lok Sabha election from Varanasi against PM Modi. If this happens then it is going to be a big setback for PM Modi and NDA. While the oppositions do not have any big face against PM Modi, Nitish Kumar’s fighting against PM Modi will give them a big support.
Earlier, Nitish Kumar had stunned everyone by breaking the ‘Mahagathbandhan’ with Lalu Yadav’s RJD and returned to the NDA. Recently, Nitish Kumar has asked Lalu Yadav about his health. But if Nitish is planning to make a comeback in the mahagathbandhan, here a big screw for him is Lalu Yadav’s son, Tejashwi Yadav.
Tejashwi has publically said that there is no place for Nitish Kumar and no chance of coalition. But still, Nitish Kumar wants to return to the alliance. The reason for this is that in the alliance with NDA, he did not found the place that he expected. When he was in the coalition with Lalu Yadav, then he was the only face as the opposition against PM Modi. But as soon as he joined NDA, his value decreased.
Now, if Nitish wants to come back in the coalition then he will have to give some sacrifices. First of all, he has to leave the Chief Minister’s post of Bihar for Tejashwi Yadavas. By doing this so, he can express his belief in the coalition.
Apart from this, to prove his faith in the entire opposition, he will have to become a direct opponent of PM Modi. For this reason, speculation is being made that he can contest Lok Sabha elections from Varanasi. By doing so, Nitish will become big face to the opposition against PM Modi.
Nitish Kumar should move towards Delhi politics from Bihar’s politics and have to find a strategy for it that will be more beneficial for him. The opposition is still looking for a face. In such a situation, he can emerge as a very important face and can come to terms with Modi. To become Modi’s opponent, he has to stand against him.
