Information pertaining to Bihar In the midst of a developing political crisis in Bihar, Rashtriya Janata Dal declared on Monday that, should JD(U) break with the BJP, it would be happy to support Chief Minister Nitish Kumar.
On Monday, a leader of the Janata Dal (United) party claimed that as the JD(U) planned to leave the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) in Bihar, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) began the “Eknath Shinde plan“ to topple the Nitish Kumar administration. However, the Chief Minister recognized the plot early on and changed the course of events.
Rajiv Ranjan Singh, also known as Lalan Singh, a 66-year-old Munger MP, and leader of the JD(U), claimed on Sunday that Nitish Kumar and his party were the targets of the “Chirag model” during the 2020 Assembly Elections, which is why the party only won 43 seats. It was an allusion to the Lok Janshakti Party of Chirag Paswan, which only participated in elections outside of the NDA on the seats from which the JD(U) ran.
The party leader, who requested anonymity, stated: “This time, RCP Singh activated the Chirag model. RCP Singh was to continue working for the JD(U) and emulate Eknath Shinde, according to the saffron party. Lalan Singh was mistaken when he said that the Eknath Shinde model in Bihar was the Chirag model. Everyone is aware of who orchestrated the plot to have Uddhav Thackrey removed from office in Maharashtra.
“Nitish Kumar made a wise assessment of the state of Bihar while closely monitoring RCP Singh’s activities. When he decided it was time to put an end to the climax, he ordered the JD(U) state president to give RCP Singh the notice and ask him to explain how he and his family came to own 40 bigha acres during the previous nine years. Following that event, RCP Singh quit the party’s primary membership and made spectacular accusations against Nitish Kumar and Lalan Singh, the party’s national president. He even asserted that the JD(U) is a ship that is sinking “The leader was quoted by the news outlet IANS.
A party insider said that the BJP came up with the idea to replace the chief minister after including only RCP Singh in the Narendra Modi administration. At that time, rumors began to circulate that a few JD(U) MLAs were in contact with RCP Singh, who was rumored to be on the verge of rebelling.
“As soon as Nitish Kumar became aware of the danger, he began surgical operations on two fronts. One, he gave Lalan Singh total power to exclude all RCP Singh supporters from the party or remove their positions of influence inside the organizational structure. Numerous organizational leaders turned to Nitish Kumar for support.”
“Due to the circumstances, neither an MLA nor an MLC publicly discussed the events in Bihar at which RCP Singh served as the primary guest. The BJP central leadership was thus compelled to send a representative to Patna as a result of another front Nitish Kumar had opened on his own initiative. Nitish Kumar took a firm stance on the matter, and Dharmendra Pradhan visited Patna to discuss it at the time.
Pradhan was reminded by Nitish Kumar that he would not respect the “Gathbandhan Dharma” if such an incident occurred again in the future. “The BJP resumed its game plan after RCP Singh’s departure, which could prompt Nitish Kumar to make a choice,” he said.
Lalan Singh has responded to the RCP Singh scandal by saying: “During the expansion of the Narendra Modi government, RCP Singh informed the JD(U) leadership that he had received a phone call from Amit Shah informing them that his name had been chosen as a cabinet minister. What criteria did the BJP use to select the JD(U) minister? What was RCP Singh doing when Amit Shah informed him that he had been chosen to serve as a cabinet minister? Nitish Kumar had given RCP Singh the authority to negotiate with the BJP. Why hadn’t he raised a protest about it? RCP Singh’s admission that he was working for the BJP while remaining a JD(U) member is evidence of this.
Lalan Singh has also criticized RCP Singh for later asserting that he had been affiliated with Nitish Kumar since 1998.
“As Nitish Kumar’s personal secretary in 1998, RCP Singh was involved. The minister of the railways at the time was Nitish Kumar, and he was surrounded by twenty-two other officials. That does not imply that he served as a JD leader (U). Since Nitish Kumar sent him to the Rajya Sabha in 2010, he has been the JD(U) leader “declared Lalan Singh.
