NEW DELHI: Nitish Kumar, who was a long-time BJP ally before snapping ties in 2013 and again joining hands in 2017, said that there was a unanimous decision in the party meeting on Tuesday “to break off ties”.
Relations between the BJP and the JD(U) had been worsening in the wake of disagreements over a host of issues including caste census, population control and the ‘Agnipath’ defence recruitment scheme.

Here are the five reasons for Nitish’s discomfort with BJP
1. Could never reconcile himself to the loss of clout within the coalition because of the sharp dip in JD(U)’s numbers and BJP’s higher tally in the assembly polls
2. BJP supported him for CM, but denied 1D(U) the post of Speaker and brought in 2 new faces as deputy CMs
3. BJP’s bid to extend influence over MBCs and other groups a sore point
4. Tension with Speaker Vijay Kumar Sinha snowballed with Sinha encouraging BJP MLAs to ask uncomfortable questions of the govt
5. JD(U)’s internal tension over surprise choice of RCP Singh as Union minister

Break points
Caste-based census – BJP was opposed to a caste census in Bihar, but Nitish got RJD to support it
Population control – Publicly opposed Union minister Prahlad Singh Patel‘s statement that a population control law was on the way
History debate – Said, “How can you change history?” after Amit Shah remarked that India’s history needs to be revisited
No-shows – Skipped 4 functions in 3 weeks: NITI Aayog meet, outgoing Prez and swearing-in of Prez, meeting of CMs called farewell dinner of by Amit Shah
In the past

I only asked for an explanation on charges against him (Tejashwi)… I insisted that the Centre must act on benami properties. So how could I continue with charges of benami properties against my own colleague? I have always been against financial impropriety.
