Let’s realise that the current situation in Maharashtra has arisen due to provocation by the UP-Bihari Politicians last year. But Lalu Yadav seems to be hell bent on further aggravating the situation with the statements he has made today. He has asked all the Bihari MPs and MLAs to resign over this issue. With Lok Sabha election just 6 months away, he has nothing to loose… But if the Bihar Assembly is dissolved, Nitish Kumar's tenure will be cut short by 2 years! चित भी मेरी… पट भी मेरा!
His game plan seems to be of provoking the Marathi Manoos into reacting violently on the Chhat Puja and then pressurize the Central Government to impose President’s rule in the state. This is some thing that Congress will be unwilling to do given that they are partners in the State Government. Using this excuse, he will withdraw support and prepone the Lok Sabha elections… enough political mileage to increase his seats in the next Lok Sabha.
