The rift in Bihar NDA governmentThe new Janata Dal-United President R.P. Singh has expressed the party's displeasure over several issues to BJP. They are highly disheartened at the inclusion of 6 JDU MLAs in Arunachal Pradesh. He slammed BJP, an ally in Bihar Government, for their betrayal and playing stratagem against coalition Dharma. He stated that in place of including them in government as ministers, the BJP merged them in the party. It is not acceptable. He also criticised BJP for bringing Love Jihad issue as it will disintegrate unity in the country and new ordinance will widen the gap between two communities.
Political analyts are beholding a difference between these two parties in Bihar. Appointment of a new chief in Janata Dal-United, mainly to give Chief Minister Nitish Kumar a chance to opt-out of dealing with the BJP brass, indicates a deep divide within Bihar's ruling alliance.
The Janata Dal-United has not shied away from blaming the BJP for covertly backing the rebellion by Chirag Paswan which chopped off nearly half the party's strength in the assembly and left it as junior partner to the BJP.
