As NDA Struggles To Cross 300 Marks, Nitish Kumar To Switch Sides Again To  I.N.D.I.A? SP Leader’s Tweet Fuels Speculation

With NDA failing to cross the magical 300 mark, the political landscape of the country post-2024 Lok Sabha elections is fast changing.

According to a media house, the INDIA alliance leadership is in contact with the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) and the Janata Dal (United) (JDU).

The genesis of this speculation is being traced back To INDIA SP Leader IP Singh’s Tweet which hinted that Nitish Kumar may return to the INDIA fold.

The buzz started after a post from Samajwadi Party IP Singh emerged which said

“Nitish was ours, is ours, and will remain ours. Hail hail Sita Ram.”

Sources also say that the Congress is in contact with the leadership of the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) and the Janata Dal (United) (JDU). Contact is being sought especially after the close finish between the two alliances.

In what was one of the most wearing Lok Sabha elections which was stretched across seven phases and two months.

The counting of the votes commenced on June 4 morning and the results have gone against all expectations that the NDA will get a thumping win.

On the contrary, the alliance has just managed to scrape past the halfway mark and is expected to form the government.

However, Nitish Kumar whose state Bihar has 40 seats can become a spoiler. In the past also Nitish Kumar was often dubbed as a sly manipulator and has often switched sides with impunity and he could do it again.

The INDIA block is just a whisker away from the magical mark of 272 and if the right combination is achieved it can still form a government at the center.

However, its ambition is largely dependent on how the Telugu Desam chief Chandra Babu Naidu and Nitish Kumar play their cards.

According to a media source, the two leaders are being offered plumb positions to wean them away from the NDA alliance.

Some sources say that the JD U chief is being offered the post of Deputy PM and a special status to Andhra Pradesh in a bid to lure the NDA partners to form government at the Centre with the alliance.

However, all this is just speculation and the news has not been verified.

Nitish Kumar’s Janata Dal (United) was leading in 15 out of 40 seats, while its ally Bharatiya Janata Party was leading on 13 seats.

The NDA in Bihar includes the BJP, JDU(U), and Lok Janshakti Party led by Chirag Paswan which was pitched against the opposition alliance of RJD, Congress, and left parties.
