And here, he faulted. I have personally found Nitish Kumar to be one of the most fascinating Indian politicians. Speaking outside the House before the beginning of the proceedings, the RJD scion said that not the RJD but the people of Bihar had been betrayed.
The nearly total support of 18% Muslims (mostly pasmandas whose politics prospered under Nitish), 14% Yadavs along with the Left and secular publics of Bihar had significantly contributed to the mahagathbandhan " s victory in 2015.
The petitions said that as this was against the Constitution, the court should intervene and dismiss the newly formed Nitish Kumar government formed with the BJP's support. The entire action (of seeking his resignation) was just an excuse so he could go with BJP, ' said Yadav, who along with his father and RJD chief Lalu Prasad, and mother Rabri Devi have been made accused in the hotels-for-land scandal case. The shock was even more intense because Nitish Kumar chose to ally with the BJP rather than effect a compromise with Lalu Yadav.
Not only is the Congress, with its present set of weapons and ammunition, not battle-ready to take on the BJP; it isn't even equipped any longer to lead the opposition. "We - Mayawati and other Opposition leaders will unite to take on them", Lalu added.
Nitish's backroom parleys with the BJP was hedging against counter-hedging by Lalu, where he was trying to save his skin in the face of serious corruption allegations.
Ex-PM Sharif to file review petition against disqualification He predicted that the PML-N under the leadership of Nawaz Sharif would emerge an absolute victor in the next general elections.

March 2000: Nitish sworn-in as CM for the first time.
Meanwhile, the opportunity to emerge as a leader and a coalescing force for the Opposition in Bihar seems to have been lost for Sharad Yadav as such issues require a strike while the iron is still hot. This has brought the curtains down on the 20-month-old government that had come into power with a brute majority in the 2015 state assembly elections. If the Bihar Chief Minister was afraid in 2013 that Modi would scare away the Muslims, he should harbour the same fear now when the rampaging gau rakshaks have become a frightening menace for the minorities. He was at loggerheads with BJP Chief Amit Shah. Lalu may be shouting hoarse and calling Nitish a backstabber, but he is probably not too sure himself if all Yadavs will stay with him in the fight on Friday as money starts talking.
Mr Modi earlier handed over a list to the chief minister of 12 members from the BJP to be inducted into the Cabinet and also discussed the distribution of portfolios, sources said.
One member of the new Cabinet, Mangal Pandey, former state BJP president and the organisational in-charge for Himachal Pradesh, couldn't turn up for the oath ceremony as his flight was delayed. In Maharashtra, the BJP has stymied the Shiv Sena and the MNS to a junior role with the increasing possibility of an absolute majority in the 2019 state election. Now, Nitish Kumar's floor-crossing will convince the BJP that the Hindi heartland is firmly in its grip. We will not let them come to power in 2019. If Kumar can make a neat break from a professed anti-communal plank to declaring corruption as the key issue in India, thereby justifying reviving the coalition with the BJP, there is nothing but personal egos stopping the Congress from engaging with the Aam Aadmi Party and the Biju Janata Dal in putting up a show against the BJP.
