For the first time the BJP heading the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) Government at the centre is claiming the credit for political morality by ruling out possibility of replacing Nitesh Kumar as Chief Minister of Bihar despite his party’s position in the alliance coming down to No: 2. BJP may claim credit for showing political morality by retaining Nitesh Kumar as Chief Minister to keep the pre-poll commitment but the decision to retain Nitesh Kumar has been obviously taken in view of the post poll experiences in Mahrashtra where BJP fought assembly elections together with it’s long time ally Shiv Sena but refused to surrender the post of Chief Minister to Udhav Thackery the Sena Chief. Refusing the post of Chief Minister to Shiva Sena Chief Udhav Thackery saw BJP going out of power after holding a mid night swearing in ceremony at Raj Bhavan Mumbai for a government former in alliance with some defectors of Shard Pawar’s Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) and in Bihar too refusing the post of Chief Minister to Nitish Kumar could see BJP going out of power despite emerging a bigger ally of the NDA in Bihar as Nitesh is unpredictable in making and breaking political combinations for power in his home state. So the decision to retain Nitesh as Chief Minister of Bihar is more an issue of survival for BJP and very less a matter of political commitment as the fact remains that the stability of JD (U)-BJP coalition government is still an issue of concern for BJP as Lal Prasad Yadav’s RJD (Rashtriya Janta Dal) an ally of Congress has emerged stronger under the leadership of Tejashwi Yadav. Claiming credit for development and not provocative politics propagated by senior BJP leaders during poll campaigning in Bohar none else than the Prime Minister of this country says that priority for an Indian voter is development but question can be asked that is development really a priority for BJP commanded and controlled by him on way or other?
Missing to mention development of Bihar during poll campaigning in Bihar and instead attempts to take political mileages from the controversial decision taken on Jammu & Kashmir after reducing it from a state to a union territory is a mockery of democracy by all standards of understandabilities.
The reply to this should undoubtedly be “No” asthe statements of UP Chief Minister Yogi Aditya Nath at poll rallies during recent poll campaigning in Bihar is sufficient enough to indicate that BJP controlled and commanded by Narendra Modi sought votes for the enforcement of new provocative land laws in Jammu & Kashmir and not for track record of development of the Bihar government under the leadership of Nitesh Kumar. Political morality demands that Prime Minister should have sought an explanation from Yogi Aditya Nath for propagating provocative politics instead of claiming credit for developmental accomplishments of Bihar government under the leadership of Nitesh Kumar at election rallies in Bihar. Question can be asked that is denying the right to property to the permanent residents of Jammu & Kashmir and giving it to people of Bihar and other states of country the BJP’s bench mark for development in Bihar? If it is so, the people of Jammu & Kashmir reserve the right to seek explanations from the BJP led NDA Government on this count. Linking development of Bihar to land and job rights of the people of Jammu & Kashmir can’t be bench mark of development for any government in any state or union territory of the country. Missing to mention development of Bihar during poll campaigning in Bihar and instead attempts to take political mileages from the controversial decision taken on Jammu & Kashmir after reducing it from a state to a union territory is a mockery of democracy by all standards of understandabilities.
