Nitish Kumar contested assembly elections in 2020 alongside the National Democratic Alliance. The BJP secured 78 seats in this election while Nitish Kumar's United Janata Dal secured 45 seats. Despite the fact that he won fewer seats than the BJP, Nitish Kumar became Chief Minister.
But in 2022, Nitish Kumar unexpectedly quit the BJP alliance and partnered with the RashtriyaJanata Dal to form the government. As a result, TejashwiYadav became the Deputy Chief Minister and Nitish Kumar assumed the role of Chief Minister.
After serving as the Bihar coalition government's leader for the previous two years, Nitish Kumar abruptly re-joined the BJP.VP Singh identified Nitish Kumar, who periodically switched allies as a result of disagreements with Lalu Prasad Yadav.
Changing alliances is normal in a democratic country like India. But Nitish Kumar's political streak is full of opportunism. 18 months ago, Nitish became the Chief Minister after falling out with the BJP and allied with the RashtriyaJanata Dal. As India formed an alliance claiming to defeat BJP and fascism, Nitish had great expectations. What happened in Bihar in between is not known. Today, Nitish Kumar has sworn in as the Chief Minister after having clashed with Lalu and TejashwiYadav and once again allied with the BJP.
Nitish Kumar, who played a major role in the formation of the India Alliance, broke the alliance and left the Congress party. However, Congress leader MallikarjunaKharge has said that Nitish Kumar's exit from the alliance was something they had expected.
Our Country has never seen such a self-interested person like him regarding his party defection. Not only in India. There is no opportunistic politician like Nitish Kumar in Asia. The All India Party leaders are criticizing that ``people will not forgive traitors''.
In 2017, Lalu Prasad Yadav published a post on his social media page. In it, ``Nitish is like a snake. He mentioned that every 2 years he wears a new skin like a snake. Lalu's daughter RohiniAcharya has now posted and commented on this post. RohiniAcharya said, ``Garbage goes back into the dustbin... it stinks.'' What better analogy could there be to compare Nitish Kumar?
Neither policy nor principle drives Nitish’s decisions. Chief Ministership is his only ambition and policy. The people of the nation are criticising him - the chameleon that changes colour frequently!
