Political furore has also started over the Nitish government’s decision to take a night curfew to control the corona virus infection in Bihar. Opposition to Nitish Kumar has been voiced by the BJP’s denial of the weekend lockdown idea by the partner BJP in the government. In the all-party meeting convened by the Governor on the Corona virus control, BJP state president and MP Sanjay Jaiswal suggested to implement the weekend lockdown. Not only this, after the meeting, Sanjay Jaiswal had also mentioned this idea in the media. The main
Sanjay Jaiswal raised objections, Kushwaha replied
Sanjay Jaiswal wrote in his Facebook post, ‘Today the Bihar government has taken a lot of decisions which are very essential in today’s situation. I am not an expert, yet in all good decisions, I am unable to understand this one decision that how will the spread of Karona virus be stopped by imposing night curfew. If the spread of the corona virus is really to be stopped, then in any case we will have to be arrested from Friday evening to Monday morning. In these 62 hours locked in the house, people will be able to know about their illness and due to their not getting out, there will be some help in preventing the spread of the disease. ‘ BJP state president further wrote – ‘By the way, the best situation in Maharashtra to stop the spread of Karona would be that 4 days employment and 3 days detention. It is not needed in Bihar right now, but if we are not able to impose strict curfew for 2 days in a week, then our situation can also be similar to Maharashtra and Chhattisgarh. ‘ Kushwaha retorted on Sanjay Jaiswal’s objection and tweeted – ‘Jaiswal ji, there is no time for political rhetoric yet!’
Separation in the statements of PM Modi and CM Nitish
JDU managed to win just 43 seats against the BJP’s 74 seats after the assembly election results last year. It is believed that the state unit of the BJP did not want the Chief Minister’s chair to go to the JDU account, but after the intervention of the central leaders of the BJP, the NDA alliance once again installed Nitish Kumar on the Chief Minister. Nitish Kumar himself has confessed this to journalists. Now work has been stopped in factories in Maharashtra and Delhi amidst growing threats from Corona. After this, the migration of laborers has started once again like last year. In such a situation, Nitish Kumar first appealed to the people of Bihar to return to their state as soon as possible. On Tuesday, in his address to the nation, PM Modi appealed that the laborers should stay where they are. There is hardly any time since the BJP + JDU alliance re-formed in July 2017 when there is a difference in the statements of PM and CM. Even last year when all states were calling their people to their state by bus and other resources, Nitish Kumar refused to provide resources for the Bihari people citing the complete lockdown of PM Modi.
Deputy CM Tarkishore Prasad has also given pain
In March this year, Deputy CM Tarkishore Prasad reached the stage of the two-day state working committee of the BJP Mahila Morcha. He got his pain here. Tarkishore Prasad had said that BJP is playing the role of elder brother in the NDA government running in Bihar, but the BJP’s impact on the functioning and policies of the government is not looking as expected. Tarkishore Prasad had said that it is true that we are not visible in the programs of the Government of Bihar. However, he also said that now BJP’s policies will be reflected in the policies and functioning of the Bihar government. Meanwhile, former JDU MLA Shyam Bahadur Singh also alleged that JDU has got fewer seats due to BJP. He had expressed concern about the future of this alliance.
BJP leaders have been questioning Bihar’s law and order and bureaucracy
The Department of Law and Order in Bihar is headed by Chief Minister Nitish Kumar himself. Despite this, in recent times, there has been a significant increase in the incidence of crime in the state, especially in the case of murder and murder, and cases of theft and robbery. Many strong leaders of Bihar BJP have been raising questions about this. During the events like 15 rounds firing on BJP leader and former district councilor in Samastipur, BJP state spokesperson Afzal Shamsi in Munger, BJP leader Rajesh Kumar Jha in Patna, Madhubani incident, many BJP leaders questioned the law and order of the state Have been picking up Apart from Union Ministers Giriraj Singh, Ashwini Choubey, BJP State President Sanjay Jaiswal has also expressed displeasure over the law and order. Giriraj Singh has been continuously alleging that officers in the Nitish government do not listen to any leader. He even called the officers of Bihar to ‘kill with bamboo ..’. At the same time, Sanjay Jaiswal had questioned the state’s policing system by writing a Facebook post on the theft incident in Bettiah.
Sushil Modi took charge on Vashisht Narayan Singh’s strong comment
On the inclusion of 6 JDU MLAs in the BJP in Arunachal Pradesh, Vashistha Narayan Singh said that this wound is very deep, it will have to be seen by the BJP not in future. He said that we were giving support, but despite this, the incident that happened is not right. At the same time, CM Nitish Kumar said in the party’s national executive meeting that an attempt was made to break our morale, but we do not panic. In view of this changed attitude of JDU, BJP finally took the path of damage control and forwarded Sushil Modi. Sushil Modi, an old friend of Nitish Kumar and former deputy CM of Bihar, took charge and said that BJP-JDU alliance is unbreakable in Bihar.
Separation seen in BJP-JDU leaders’ statement on prohibition
Complete prohibition in Bihar is counted in the big decisions of Nitish Kumar’s government. But smuggling of liquor secretly continues in Bihar. Regarding this, BJP leaders have sometimes questioned the decision of complete prohibition. In February this year, JDU went stung when BJP MLC Sanjay Paswan spoke of ending liquor ban. Earlier, Nishakant Thakur, MP from Godda, Jharkhand, tweeted, ‘Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar is requested to make some amendments in the ban on alcohol, as those who want to drink or drink are from Nepal, Bengal, Jharkhand, Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh. They follow the path, this leads to loss of revenue, hotel industry affected and police, excise corruption. ‘ On these statements of BJP leaders, CM Nitish Kumar had to say in the assembly that the decision to ban liquor was taken with the consent of all parties, so it is meaningless to have any objection to it.
Nitish Kumar did not allow BJP to run even in cabinet expansion!
After the JDU became the third party in the Bihar assembly elections, there was speculation that the BJP, which won 74 seats, would form its CM, but that could not happen. However, when Tarkishore Prasad and Renu Devi became the two deputy CMs of the BJP, it seemed that the party’s dominance would be seen in the government. Nitish Kumar did not allow this to happen. Nitish Kumar should also keep the cabinet extension till JDU and BJP get equal ministerial posts as before. Not only this, Nitish Kumar was also successful in keeping the powerful ministry with the leaders of his party as before.
Nitish Kumar is considered to be of ‘stubborn’ nature
Those who know the politics of Bihar, tell that Nitish Kumar is a leader of stubborn nature. They do what they decide in mind. Especially when Nitish Kumar is in power, he does not listen to anyone. He wants to run the government completely on his own terms. It is believed that BJP has been tolerating Nitish Kumar’s stubbornness due to some of his compulsions. However, no BJP leader has refrained from speaking openly on the question of Nitish’s stubbornness.
