Bihar CM, Nitish Kumar announced the ban of liquor from the state but in April 2016. One of major committments by the Nitish Kumar was making Bihar a dry state after some women protested in front of Nitish Kumar . Why not an immediate ban ? Is it the heavy revenues which the govt collects from taxes on liquor sale or just to ensure their stand against the BJP party which has been making news for banning “beef” in Maharashtra and J&K ?
Mulayam Singh Yadav , the Supremo of SP has pulled out from the “grand alliance” of Janata Parivar ahead of Bihar Elections. Reportedly, SP was offered 5 seats to contest in the elections and that became a reason of Mulayam’s stepping back. The party has decided to contest all on its own.
While, SP is not a grand player in Bihar politics but contesting alone would favour BJP as the Nitish-Lalu alliance may suffer vote-cuts. BJP claimed that comparatively low turn out in Swabhiman Rally called by Janata Parivar has been a reason why SP preferred stepping back. Some room for relief and may be laughter for BJP ??
Nine months since Nitish Kumar stepped down as Bihar CM and was replaced by Jitan Ram Manjhi, Nitish Kumar plans to return as CM of the state. Although, Manjhi has remained unwilling to leave the CM’s post, his re-entry as Chief Minister was endorsed today by the law-makers from his party.
To curb down the emerging power of BJP and Modi, Mulayam Singh Yadav, Nitish Kumar, and Lalu Prasad Yadav have joined hands and are having talks to merge up as ‘Janata Parivar’ which may include the three and HP Deve Gowda.
It would be interesting to see if this group of opportunist politicians will actually get any opportunity and scope to unite for a common interest.
Former Union Minister Sriprakash Jaiswal of congress who lost to MM Joshi of BJP this General Elections, said Congress will take to the streets if NDA govt does not bring down inflation in next 3 months as promised in BJP’s manifesto.
Did the BJP really commit to bring down inflation in 3 months which the Congress led UPA govt could not bring down throughout its second tenure , is a matter of inspection. However,is the Congress left to do anything else other than taking to the streets ? The party has reduced to 44 seats falling short of even standing as a main opposition party.
“….Ab Congress waale kya karenge ???? …… arey protest karenge .. protest karenge … protest karenge ” 😀 😉
By the way, Digvijaya Singh of Congress who was always heard accusing and addressing Modi with disrespect pre-election results has changed the way he addresses Modi now . 😉 Looks like Digvijaya ji has got the message loud . Quite loud!!! 😀
And Nitish Kumar of JD(u) who left the alliance of NDA,last year,and was heard criticizing Modi has resigned as the CM of Bihar. This step has been taken because few MLAs of his party decided to join BJP after a shameful loss of seats in the state. To save the party from splitting Nitish Kumar has decided to sacrifice his seat.
