Today, I was in mood to write about the counting of the Presidential Election held on Monday 17 July 2017. It’s not like that I won’t write about that. By 5 pm today, it will be clear that who will be the next Indian President. But there was something else which caught my attention. It was the news article about the ongoing political crisis in Bihar. It looks like the closed door official meeting between Nitish Kumar and Tejashwi Yadav was like a compromise deal. This meeting lasted for 40 minutes. The detail of the meeting isn’t out but it seems that Tejashwi Yadav has explained his position in the alleged corruption charges against him.
But I would like to say that there is compromise in the political arena now. I think now the clean image of Nitish Kumar won’t last long. He isn’t saying anything about removing Tejashwi Yadav from his cabinet. This proves that he is power hungry person and wants to save his post. Well, the war of words is going on within the grand alliance and these types of allegations are going on between RJD and JD (U) after the meeting. Leaders of RJD and JD (U) are saying different things. RJD leader is saying that the crisis in the grand alliance is over. JD (U) leader is saying that the JD (U) wants explanation from Tejashwi Yadav for the corruption charges against him.
Counter allegation from RJD leader is that Tejashwi Yadav has given enough explanation in this regard. Now it’s turn of Nitish Kumar to give explanation about the secret deal with BJP. BJP has already said that it will give support to Nitish Kumar in case of fall of grand alliance. Both the parties are blaming each other and are giving their own statements. RJD sources are saying that Tejashwi Yadav won’t resign and will take legal action against the charges being framed against him. JD (U) sources said that Nitish Kumar isn’t satisfied with the explanations given by Tejashwi Yadav.
Actually, the political picture has become more complex. It’s full of uncertainties. Nobody knows that what will happen next. It’s clear that Tejashwi Yadav isn’t in mood to resign. There is something fishy right now. It’s not clear that what happened in the meeting in the closed door. The door is open now but the secret isn’t. I don’t doubt that there will be more drama in the coming time. Let’s see that what happens before the monsoon session of the Bihar assembly. Both parties are rigid on their demands and both don’t want to go back from their demands. In this situation, the grand alliance has to get over. Now the main thing is that when it will break? Now the situation is that both of them want to stay together but don’t want to accept each other’s condition.
Is there chance of fall of the government? Will there be fresh elections in the state? Will BJP support Nitish Kumar to avoid midterm election in case of breaking of grand alliance? What was the outcome of the closed door meeting between Nitish Kumar and Tejashwi Yadav? There are many questions like this. But the answer is unknown. Nothing can be said right now. Rounds of allegations and counter allegations are going on. Actually these types of things hamper the smooth functioning of the government. Many projects in the state have come to a standstill. Right now, the beaucrats are running the state. This is not a good sign for any state. But I hope soon the solution will come out.
