Frosty response by smaller outfits to Nitish Kumar’s call for alliance in U.P.

Bihar Chief Minister and Janata Dal(United) president Nitish Kumar has been busy holding rallies in Uttar Pradesh. Enthused by his victory in Bihar last month, Kumar has been trying to damage the B.J.P. of Prime Minister Narendra Modi in U.P., the most populous state which is also represented by Modi in Lok Sabha as a Member of Parliament from Varanasi. Kumar has talked to leaders of many smaller outfits, most of them based on caste, and several rebel leaders of state’s influential parties like Bahujan Samaj Party of former U.P. Chief Minister Mayawati, with the offer of striking an alliance. However, the response of these smaller outfits has not been very enthusiastic. Kumar who could well be perceived as preparing for launching his campaign for Prime Minister in 2019 parliamentary elections, does not look getting the response that he needs to stand up as a challenger to PM Modi.
