Nitish eyeing Congress

August 18 2017

While on one hand Lalu, Congress and Sharad Yadav are trying to split the Janata Dal (U), Nitish Kumar on the other, too is not sitting idle. Nitish is trying to engineer a split in the Congress by luring away 18 MLAs of whom 12 have already agreed to hop on to Nitish’s ship. Nitish wants this faction to merge in the JD (U). According to JD (U) sources, several non-Yadav MLAs of the RJD, too are being poached by Nitish’s men. The strategy is to reduce his dependence on BJP. For that it is necessary to swell his ranks.
