PATNA: Senior Congress leader Digvijay Singh today said Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar could dump the NDA in coming days.
The former Madhya Pradesh chief minister said Kumar could go for another volte face the moment he finds the popularity of Prime Minister Narendra Modi is on the wane.
“It takes only 24 hours for Kumar to make a volte-face. Lok Sabha elections are six months away. Palti (U-turn) is possible,” Singh told a news channel in Patna on Wednesday.
Kumar who won the last Bihar elections in the company of the RJD and the Congress dumped the Grand Alliance in July last year to return to the NDA.
JD-U headed by Kumar, RJD and the Congress were part of the Grand Alliance which pulverized the NDA in the last 2015 assembly polls and won the elections with a historic majority.
Media reports say Kumar currently is not finding himself comfortable in the company of the BJP as the latter is not giving him too much weight this time and offering just handful of seats keeping in view JD-U flop show in the last 2014 LS polls.
The JD-U which had gone it alone in the last polls, had won only two seats out of 40 it had contested but has been demanding more from the BJP which the latter finds it “impossible”.
Is politics really the art of possibilities? The issue is once again being hotly debated in the political circles in the aftermath of Singh’s latest observations.
