PATNA: The Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) has asked its cadres and workers to be ready for elections saying the mid-term polls can be held anytime in Bihar given the growing “internal conflicts” among the partners of ruling alliance.
The ruling Grand Secular Alliance comprising the RJD, JD-U and the Congress is led by chief minister Nitish Kumar.
“The way the three alliance partners are caught in internal conflicts point towards a serious tension in the government and Assembly polls can be held any time,” Bihar BJP president Mangal Pandey told the media today at the end of party’s executive committee meeting in Patna.
According to BJP leaders, conflicts between RJD president Lalu Prasd and chief minister Kumar have increased suddenly after cancellation of bail of Mohammad Shahabuddin and suspended RJD lawmaker Raj Ballabh Yadav.
Their bails were cancelled after the Bihar government moved the Supreme Court, challenging the bails granted by the Patna High Court.
“Lalu’s minister children—Tej Pratap Yadav and Tejashwi Yadav, are skipping the routine Cabinet meetings whereas the deputy chief minister is refraining from joining the programme attended by the chief minister. This clearly indicates all is not well within the ruling alliance and the government might fall any time,” Pandey said.
