After breaking ranks with the BJP on issues such as caste-based census and demand for a probe into the Pegasus snooping, Nitish Kumar is set to meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi with a delegation from Bihar.
This is the first time an NDA ally has supported the Opposition’s demand for probe into the Pegasus spyware scandal.
Chirag Paswan might have been ditched both by the BJP and the five MPs of his party at the moment, but the doors of immense possibilities in the future remain ajar for him in politics.
Thanks to their numerical strength in the state assembly, BJP leaders no longer seem to accept anything and everything from Nitish Kumar without demur.
It is widely believed that Sushil Modi’s ‘expose’ of corruption charges against Lalu Prasad’s sons led Nitish Kumar to walk out of the Mahagathbandhan and restore his ties with the BJP in 2017.

The opposition leaders alleged that the BJP-JD(U) alliance has pushed through the draconian Bihar Special Armed Police Bill, 2021 that empowers Bihar Police to conduct raids and arrests without warrants.
Nitish Kumar, a Kurmi by caste, apparently wants to revive the non-Yadav OBC front in Bihar by building bridges with former Union minister Upendra Kushwaha, a Koeri leader.
On Thursday, AIMIM legislators, led by their state president Akhtar-ul-Iman called on Nitish Kumar purportedly to discuss the underdevelopment of the Muslim-dominated Seemanchal region.
The soft corner Nitish Kumar had displayed for Lalu Prasad during his illness in 2018 had triggered speculations that he was feeling uneasy in the BJP-led coalition.
The Grand Alliance had come into being ahead of the 2015 assembly elections when Kumar had joined hands with his arch rival, RJD supremo Lalu Prasad.
Lalan Singh's statement assumes significance in the backdrop of rumours of political instability in the state in view of alleged lack of compatibility between the two major NDA partners- BJP and JD(U).
'They (JDU MLAs) are all feeling stifled in the current dispensation and are willing to switch sides as soon as possible,' RJD leader Shyam Rajak said
RCP Singh, a bureaucrat-turned-politician, was so far the general secretary of the regional party.
Chowdhury, also the West Bengal Congress president, advised Kumar to keep in touch with the opposition in Bihar.
RJD national vice-president Shivanand Tiwary, however, made it clear that the ball lies in the court of the JD(U) boss.
