Nitish’s Secret Rendezvous

September 24 2018

This is perhaps for the first time that Bihar CM Nitish Kumar visited New Delhi, but stayed neither in Bihar Bhavan in Chanakyapuri, nor in his personal house in Dwarka. Executing clear caution, he chose to stay in his government residence at 6, Kamraj Lane. A source close to Nitish tells us that this time around, he wanted to keep his visit under wraps. Staying at Bihar Bhavan would be inviting a crowd of visitors. But despite such secrecy, his meeting with BJP president Amit Shah got leaked in the media. Is it a mere coincidence that just when Nitish was in Delhi, the LJP MP Pashupati Paras was also in Delhi on some special mission? It is now known that Paras had a serious meeting with Nitish during which the bitterness between JDU and LJP over seat sharing also got resolved. But LJP’s fight with BJP is still on. The BJP wants to exchange seats with LJP and JDU to ensure that their candidates contest from their original seats from where they have won in the past. BJP says that while Ram Vilas Paswan’s seat Hajipur, his son Chirag Paswan’s seat Jamui and Ram Vilas’ younger brother Paras’ seat Samastipur intact, BJP wants to exchange three other seats: Munger, Khagaria and Vaishali. Birds are chirping that central minister Upendra Kushwaha is all set to bid goodbye to the BJP-JDU alliance. He is keeping silent till the poll results of Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh and Madhya Pradesh are out. The decision, he has taken, now all that remains is the declaration.
