NDA heads towards National Defunct Alliance
Now JD(U) is to seek vote of confidence on June 19. At present, in the 243-member assembly, the JD-U has 118 MLAs and BJP 91. JD-U just needs four MLAs for a majority. Independents and others account for 6 MLAs. The main opposition Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) has 22 and Congress four.

With the announcement of RJD leader Lalu Parshad Yadav to support bandh on June 19 one day before the vote of confidence on account of betrayal by Nitish with Bihar, the situation is going to be more complex.

In a major setback to National Democractic Alliance (NDA) which looks to be heading towards to become National Defunct Alliance, Nitish Kumar, Bihar Chief Minister alongwith Sharad Kumar Yadav, President JD(U) has confirmed that his 17-year alliance with the BJP is over.

Last Wednesday, his majority will be tested in the state legislature, where his party, the Janata Dal United or JDU, is four votes short of a majority.  BJP's 11 ministers must be dismissed; they have so far not resigned. Now, there has been a situation at the national level which has made our continuing in the alliance impossible.

After the settlement of Modi-Advani, by non-attending of  National Executive Meeting at Goa and later on resigning from all posts of the party by Advani, Nitish Kumar’s JD(U) party withdrawing support from BJP which could not digest the elevation of Narendra Modi as incharge of election campaign for Lok Sabha election 2014, perhaps indirectly a candidate for the post of PM.

Normally, it is said that it is the ideology which makes separation. The cause of separation on ideology is not acceptable as it is the same which was before the elevation of Modi of BJP party.

During the press conference, the Chief Minister did not mention the cause of the split and did not name even Narendra Modi but indirectly quoted that to name Prime Minister, one need more than 270 votes which could not be possible with the support of JD(U). Rather, the steps should have been aken to create a consensus. By recently choosing him to lead its election campaign, the BJP has signalled that he is the front runner for its prime ministerial nomination, the JDU has alleged.

Sharad Yadav, who is president of the JDU, said, "It is not who the BJP selects as their leader that is our problem. But recent speeches have indicated an agenda we cannot subscribe to." Mr. Yadav said he has resigned as Convener of the National Democratic Alliance or NDA, the coalition of nine parties including the JDU which is fronted by the BJP.

BJP leader Sushma Swaraj termed the break-up "sad and unfortunate." Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi of the party added that the party will not reverse its decision on Narendra Modi's elevation "even if alliance breaks 10 times.

Now JD(U) is to seek vote of confidence on June 19. At present, in the 243-member assembly, the JD-U has 118 MLAs and BJP 91. JD-U just needs four MLAs for a majority. Independents and others account for 6 MLAs. The main opposition Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) has 22 and Congress four.
