NDA's 18 party alliance in 2014 that made BJP gain simple majority has now found in loggerheads.
The major partners In Maharastra , Shivasena broken up and In Andra Chandra babu naidu has turned bitter enemy for Modi and Amit shah and in Kashmir PDP is now trying to avenge for BJP back stabbed act in their kashmir state.
On the other hand the merging of opposition parties gives nightmare for Powerful modi shah combo especially the fusion amongst BSP and SP.
The combined opposition ensured pathetic defeat for ruling establishments in various bye-polls Adding to the woes besides, renewed demand for special category status to Bihar and smaller gestures like non-participation in Yoga Day celebrations also point that all is not well in the ruling NDA alliance.
To make matters worse, a disgruntled BJP leader Monazir Hasan, who quit the JD (U) in 2014 to join the saffron party only to be suspended in 2015, came back to Nitish's fold on Monday. He said he did not feel comfortable in the BJP and added that JD(U) was like home to him.
"Nitish is our leader and has kept the agenda of secularism intact," he said. State JD(U) president Vashishtha Narayan Singh said, "Hasan's homecoming will benefit the party."
Meanwhile, BJP MP Chhedi Paswan raised question over his own government alleging that "law and order situation in Bihar was not as good as it should be, and marked improvement was required." This did not go down well with some JD(U) leaders, who said Paswan should decide on which side he was.
Sources said none of the parties wanted to play second fiddle in the state, and with smaller allies such as Lok Janashakti Party (LJP) and Rashtriya Lok Samata Party (RLSP) refusing to compromise on numbers, bigger parties were indulging in pressure tactics before the formal rounds of talks over the 40 Lok Sabha seats in the state.
Senior BJP leaders including former union minister Syed Shahnawaz Hussain have ruled out having any differences saying, "The NDA is strong in Bihar." On the other hand, JD(U) politicos are making noise over claims of 'big-brother' status and seats for the 2019 general election.
The cracks appeared almost a month ago when on June 3, JD(U) leaders at a meet in Patna had asserted party president and Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar as the face of the ruling alliance and said that polls in the state should be fought under his leadership.
The JD(U), which has 70 MLAs in Bihar and two members in the Lok Sabha, has time and again made it clear that "if the 2014 formula is adhered to in 2019, then the yardstick for 2020 state assembly polls should be 2015, when JD(U) won 71 of the 100 seats it contested and stood second at most of the remaining seats."
Now all eyes are now on JD(U)'s July 8 meet and BJP chief Amit Shah's July 12 Patna visit to clear air on these matters.
