Nitish Kumar’s Bombshell for INDIA Bloc Just Day Before Rahul Gandhi’s Nyay Yatra Enters Bihar

Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Sunday submitted his resignation to Governor Rajendra V Arlekar amid speculations that he would be returning to the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) led by the BJP, in less than two years of the controversial political break-up.

The governor accepted Kumar’s resignation and asked him to continue as caretaker CM till a new government is formed.

Kumar, who was accompanied by senior minister Bijendra Yadav of the JD(U), after the resignation said that he advised the governor to dissolve the Bihar assembly.

Nitish’s exit from the Mahagathbandhan, which consists of Lalu Prasad Yadav’s Rashtriya Janata Dal and Congress party, was right on schedule– just a day before Rahul Gandhi’s ambitious ‘Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra’ is set to enter Bihar.

RJD’s sudden political move is highly attributed to the Congress’s failure to unite the regional parties on the seat-sharing arrangement and diverting focus majorly on Rahul Gandi and his ‘Nyay Yatra.’

Reports suggested that the Janata Dal (United) chief remained ‘non-committal’ about his participation in Congress’s Yatra as he was reportedly upset over delays in seat-sharing talks for the 2024 Lok Sabha election.

All’s Not Well in Bihar Congress?

Meanwhile, most Congress leaders in Bihar remained absent from the party’s meeting in Purnia on Saturday to discuss preparations for the Rahul Gandhi-led Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra.

Only 10 of 19 Bihar Congress MLAs turned up at the meeting amid the ongoing political turmoil in the state with RJD’s fifth possible flip-flop in the last decade.

While Congress legislative party leader Shakeel Ahmad Khan tried to play down the absence of the MLAs, this is being seen as an impact of the recent political events in Bihar.

“Only those MLAs given responsibility to oversee the yatra attended the meeting,” Khan told TOI.

Meanwhile, Congress Chief Mallikarjun Kharge was quick to respond to Nitish Kumar’s expected blow to the Mahagatbandhan as well as the INDIA bloc and said “he knew it would happen.”

“Earlier he and us were fighting together. When I talked to Lalu Ji and Tejashwi, they also said that Nitish is going. If he wanted to stay, he would have stayed but he wants to go. That’s why we already knew this, but to keep the India Alliance intact, if we say something wrong, the wrong message will be sent. This information was already given to us by Lalu Prasad Yadav and Tejashwi Yadav. Today that came true. There are many people in the country like ‘Aaya Ram-Gaya Ram’, Kharge said.

Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra in Bihar

The Rahul Gandhi-led Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra will resume from West Bengal’s Jalpaiguri district on Sunday after a two-day break.

On Monday, it will head to Islampur in Uttar Dinajpur district, before entering Bihar, he added. The Yatra is scheduled to re-enter West Bengal on January 31 via Malda and then after travelling through Murshidabad, it will leave the state on February 1.

Meanwhile, the Congress Party has intensified preparations for Gandhi’s ‘Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra’ in Seemanchal. Congress workers in Kishanganj, Araria and Purnia of Seemanchal held a preparatory meeting as well.

Reaching out to the youth ahead of the Lok Sabha polls, Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan on Tuesday said Kerala PSC is far ahead of the UPSC and other state PSCs in creating employment opportunities in the public sector.

“Kerala Public Service Commission (PSC) is setting an example for the entire country by making record appointments. More than 230,000 job recommendations have been issued since June 2016. The state government has created around 30,000 additional posts during this period,” Vijayan said, addressing the Chief Minister’s face-to-face programme with the youth, organised here.

He claimed that the state made this achievement at a time when millions of posts are lying vacant in central services and other states.

“The Union Public Service Commission has made only 16,434 appointments in central services across India since 2018. But during the same period, Kerala PSC created a record in appointments. The State Public Service Commission of Uttar Pradesh, with a population eight times that of Kerala and three times as many government employees, has only made 37,632 appointments,” the Left leader claimed.

In an apparent reference to the appointments made by PSCs in the BJP-ruled states in the last five years, the CM said only 4,590 appointments have been made in Madhya Pradesh, 11,535 in Maharashtra, and 8,890 in Gujarat.

Vijayan also said only 12,940 appointments were made in West Bengal and 31,869 in Rajasthan during this period.

His statement also comes in the wake of opposition allegations that there was an undeclared ban in place on appointments in the state services and efforts are on to destroy the Kerala Public Service Commission under the Left rule.
