In Bihar, ties between the BJP and its ruling alliance partner, the JD(U), are worsening by the day, with politicians conducting business on social media and threatening to break apart.
BJP OBC wing national general secretary Nikhil Anand took a dig at JD(U), tweeting: “Small groups cannot understand the working style of big parties. They are not clear about their own identity they are a small group Or a larger group. The day is not far when they will have to look for a new place.”
According to Anand's statement, the BJP, which has 74 seats in the Bihar assembly, has appointed Nitish Kumar's JD(U) to lead the state government, despite the latter having just 45 seats. He did not, however, name any leaders in his tweet.
On January 12, Jha slammed BJP state president Sanjay Agarwal for questioning his visit to a village in West Champaran to grieve his family members after they lost a loved one in a bogus liquor disaster. Following the January 15 liquor disaster in the chief minister's area of Nalanda, state BJP president Sanjay Jaiswal blasted the Nitish Kumar administration for failing to implement his priority project, the liquor ban in the state. He said that the failure of prohibition in the state was due to a connection of high officials, police, and the mafia.
