As it was predicted in advance that JDU will say goodbye to NDA alliance if BJP decided to project Naendra Modi as its prime ministerial candidate. So far, BJP has not done so however, it has made Modi head of 2014 election campaign and this outcome was not welcomed by JDU; therefore, it decided to break this 17 year old alliance.
Now JDU and BJP will face each other in Bihar. So far, there is no immediate danger for JDU government in Bhiar as it is just short of 4 seats in Bihar Assembly for which it can get support from independent MLAs. This split is likely to help other opposition parties in Bihar RJD of Lulu Prasad, LJP of Ram Vilas Paswan and Congress.
By doing so, JDU has tried to vow Muslim voters. At present it is hard to tell who will get advantage of this split. 2014 Loksabha election results of Bihar will tell that decision taken by JDU was right or not. This split has created new challenge for Narendra Modi and let’s sees who tackles it.
