27 July will be marked as an important day in the history of Bihar politics when Chief Minister broke the grand alliance between JD(U)RJD and Congress to join hands with BJP and form a new government in the state.

This move of Nitish Kumar was anticipated by a few and was a jerk for others. With the growing tension between RJD Chief Lalu Prasad Yadav and Nitish Kumar, there were talks of Nitish breaking the alliance. Also, the support extended to NDA Presidential candidate and attendance at the launch of GST of Kumar did not go unnoticed.

The crack in the alliance deepened after the recent CBI raids at the premises of Lalu and his family members including his son and former Deputy CM of Bihar Tejashwi Yadav. Following the raids and with Tejashwi accused to be involved in the CBI case Nitish demanding the resignation of Lalu’s son said he will not tolerate corruption in his government. This further fueled the already prevailing tensions in the mahagathbandhan.

The grand alliance received its final blow when on 26 July late in the evening Nitish broke its alliance and resigned as the Chief Minister of Bihar. Immediately after his resignation BJP extended its undivided support to Nitish, he made the new government in alliance with BJP and swore in as the CM of Bihar again on 27 July.

However, RJD has not taken the blow so lightly, Lalu had said that he will approach the court and seek justice as RJD was the single largest party in the state and hence was supposed to be approached before JD(U) to form the new government. As per the latest update regarding this, Patna High Court on Friday accepted two petitions challenging the formation of a new government by Nitish Kumar’s JD(U) along with the BJP.

One petition was filed by Jitender Kumar and the second by Rashtriya Janata Dal legislators Saroj Yadav and Chandan Kumar Verma. The petitions read that RJD is the largest party in the state assembly but Governor Keshari Nath Tripathi did not invite it to form the new government after Nitish Kumar resigned on Wednesday. The petitions said that as this was against the Constitution, the court should intervene and dismiss the newly formed Nitish Kumar government formed with the BJP’s support.

The court has, however, not fixed a date for hearing the two petitions yet.
