BJP's silence on the issue of caste census, Nitish's meeting with Tejashwi in solitude put an end to new equations

In Bihar, the car of BJP and JDU started galloping on the track with the mandate till 2025, but by 2022, it seemed that it would not take long to derail. It did not seem like this, the growing distance from the BJP and proximity to the RJD was fueling this fear. The rhetoric of both the parties had stopped and increased in JDU and BJP. BJP's silence on the issue of caste census, proximity to Tejashwi at Dawat-e-Iftar, and Nitish's meeting with Tejashwi in solitude were also confirming this. The work of the government was also getting lax. The absence of the cabinet meeting to be held every week for a month was also pointing towards this. However, Nitish's tours were going on and site inspections of review meetings and schemes were being done. But there was silence. However, now everything seems to be back on track and RJD is also on the edge.

The tussle between BJP and JDU had started only after the formation of the government, but it increased further during the budget session in March. The episode was that Assembly Speaker Vijay Kumar Sinha had demanded action against some police officers of his constituency Lakhisarai. He said that the police are putting innocent people in jail. He was informed to take his complaint seriously and to proceed with the investigation, but he was raising the matter every day, so Nitish got angry at him in the House itself and advised him to work according to the constitution. From that day onwards the news started floating that the relationship between BJP and JDU was no longer as before. Even in the BJP's defeat in the Bochan by-election, it was believed that JDU did not help it. The younger leaders of both parties were not failing to attack each other. The rhetoric between them started sending a message to the public that the role of the opposition is not RJD, but these parties are playing against each other.

Apart from these incidents, there were some incidents that made the relationship between the two parties mysterious. In the days of Ramzan, when RJD gave Iftar feast, Nitish reached Rabri's residence on foot and when JDU gave a feast, Nitish sat away on Tejashwi's arrival, but went to leave the car and also opened its door. Here, when Nitin Gadkari inaugurated the one-lane road off the Koilvar bridge, Chief Minister Nitish Kumar was not invited nor any local elected representative was invited. In the meantime, the opposition again started raising the issue of conducting a caste census in Bihar. Tejashwi Yadav gave an ultimatum to the Chief Minister to march to Delhi if he did not decide to call an all-party meeting within 72 hours. When Nitish called him within 24 hours and talked in solitude, Tejashwi looked satisfied. It started gaining strength that JDU's government would run with the help of RJD and Chief Minister Nitish would remain the same. There was talk of calling an all-party meeting on May 27, but Nitish clarified that the consent of all the parties has not come yet, so the date has not been fixed. It was assumed that the BJP might not agree, but now a meeting is to be held on June 1 and the BJP has agreed.

However, the chances of a split between the BJP and the JD(U) continued to dwindle with some incidents in between. One such incident happened between Nitish and Union Minister Dharmendra Pradhan. However, the official details of what happened between the two have not come to date. But the leaders of both the parties agreed that the dispute was over. The confrontation between BJP-JDU escalated on the question of caste census before the BJP announced to participate in the meeting organized for it. Now at the end of the month, everything seems to be returning to the old track. The state cabinet meeting has been held on 26 May. RJD has also become an attacker on JDU and BJP as before.

This announcement by JDU National President Rajiv Ranjan Singh alias Lalan Singh has boosted the morale of the workers of both the parties that Nitish Kumar will remain the Chief Minister of the NDA government till 2025. Now in Bihar, which gives strength to the winds, how long this peace and stability of power last or nothing will arise again, it is in the future, but at the moment everything is looking fine.
