JDU is upset with Chandrashekhar’s statement on Ramcharitmanas
JDU has been raging since the day Education Minister Chandrashekhar made a controversial statement regarding Ramcharitmanas at the convocation ceremony of Nalanda Open University. JDU not only opposed it officially, but CM Nitish Kumar advised Chandrashekhar to refrain from such statements. Chandrashekhar countered Nitish and replied that he is firm on his stand. In between, he kept repeating his words everywhere that Ramcharitmanas is a book that spreads hatred. The limit was reached when Chandrashekhar reached the assembly with Ramcharitmanas. He inserted the issue of Ramcharit Manas during the discussion on the budget of the education department in the assembly. The next day, in the Legislative Council also, he started speaking on Ramcharit Manas, which was opposed in the House itself by JDU members along with BJP. The protestors argued that the education minister should talk about education during the discussion on the education budget and not Ramcharitmanas. The protest came to an end when Devesh Chandra Thakur, the Chairman of the Legislative Council, did not allow the Education Minister to speak. He adjourned the proceedings.

Opposition of MLC Neeraj Kumar and MLA Sanjeev
JDU councilor Neeraj Kumar and MLA Sanjeev have vociferously opposed the education minister’s mental context. Neeraj has already been saying that Chandrashekhar is not doing good by commenting on Ramayana related to the faith of Hindus. In protest against this, he also worshiped in the Hanuman temple. MLA Sanjeev has questioned Chandrashekhar’s ability and understanding. JDU had also officially issued a statement making it clear that it is against such issues. Despite all this, RJD never interrupted or stopped his minister for this. It is clear that RJD does not agree with JDU’s stand.
Chandrashekhar shielded his proximity to Tejashwi Yadav
Chandrashekhar’s closeness to Tejashwi Yadav is well known. After the controversial statement episode, both of them have been seen speaking together in a happy mood in many programs. It is clear from this that RJD has no objection to Chandrashekhar’s statement. Incidentally, it is also appropriate to mention that there is no consensus on this issue even in RJD. In the state office, National Vice President Shivanand Tiwari rejected Chandrashekhar’s statement saying that it should not be considered as the stand of the party. Because there has been no discussion on this in the party. But State President Jagdanand Singh disagreed with the words of Shivanand Tiwari.
Sudhakar Singh kept speaking against Nitish, no action was taken
RJD MLA Sudhakar Singh has become the second factor in the tussle in the Grand Alliance. He continues to speak against Nitish Kumar and his own government. Till now Sudhakar Singh has used innumerable indecent words like Shikhandi, Hitech Bhikhamanga for Nitish Kumar. Nitish left the responsibility of taking appropriate decision in this regard on RJD. Tejashwi Yadav had also accepted that the kind of statement Sudhakar Singh is making is the language of the BJP. When Sudhakar was given a show cause notice by RJD, it seemed that honesty is really intact in the Grand Alliance. But, till now no action has been taken against Sudhakar, JDU is getting upset. Sudhakar Singh’s statement was also the basis for Upendra Kushwaha’s leaving JDU.
Pressure to make law to stop ED-CBI
Now RJD has thrown a new challenge in front of JDU. Pressure has started increasing on Nitish Kumar from RJD that the way some non-BJP ruled states have made a law to give permission to CBI and ED from the government before taking action against anyone, a similar law should be made in Bihar as well. When RJD’s strong leader MLA Bhai Virendra raised this voice, other leaders of the party have also started making similar demands.
What is the secret of Nitish’s silence knowing everything
Even after seeing and hearing all this, Nitish Kumar has kept silence. They are not saying anything. Nitish Kumar also gave a balanced statement on the CBI-ED action against Lalu Yadav and his family members. He had said that those against whom action is being taken are giving answers. Anyway, Nitish’s silence is very fatal. The record so far has been that Nitish becomes silent before any major decision. They remain silent before going with someone or leaving someone. His decision is sudden, which takes everyone by surprise. Don’t be surprised if he does something unexpected this time too.
