JD(U) leader KC Tyagi said "INDIA alliance is on the verge of breaking due to the irresponsible and obstinate attitude of Congress."

In 2000, Nitish became Chief Minister of the state for the first time after campaigning against RJD supremo Lalu Prasad Yadav's 'Jungle Raaj'. Till now, he has held the chief ministerial post eight times.

In 2013, Nitish broke ranks with the NDA after a 17-year alliance following the announcement of Narendra Modi as the BJP's prime ministerial candidate. He expressed his displeasure to the BJP over Modi's selection as the PM face, and after the BJP decided to not change its decision, Kumar left the alliance.

In 2017, Nitish forged a grand alliance with the RJD and Congress and returned as chief minister in 2015. He walked out of the grand alliance in 2017, accusing the RJD of corruption and choking governance in the state.

In 2022, Nitish Kumar snapped ties with the BJP once again, alleging the BJP was conspiring against him and trying to influence JD-U MLAs to rebel against him.

There are speculations of Nitish Kumar joining forces with the BJP. The move comes ahead of the Lok Sabha elections scheduled in a few months as well as the Bihar Legislative Assembly elections in 2025.
