Why Nitish Kumar and JDU skips International Yoga Day celebrations in Patna?

Why Nitish Kumar and JDU skips International Yoga Day celebrations in Patna?
Written by Abhishek Lohia

On the occasion of International Yoga Day, on Thursday (June 21), the yoga trail sweeps around the world. Most of the people have stepped in to lead a healthy life by doing yoga. Yoga has shown a great look in the Pataliputra Sports ground in Patna. The main event was organized here in Patna, in which Governor Satyapal Malik and Deputy Chief Minister of Bihar Sushil Modi participated. But In the Yoga Event at Bihar, the absence of Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar has pointed to a bitter political relationship between the BJP-JDU. When the tradition of celebrating Yoga Day began on June 21, 2015, Nitish Kumar had said that yoga is a personal choice and showing it in publicly is not good. However, at that time Nitish Kumar was a part of the Maha-Gathbandhan. 

JDU’s disappearance from Narendra Modi’s much-acclaimed International Yoga Day is pointing to new equations flourishing in Bihar’s politics. Let us say that despite being in the NDA, Nitish Kumar has not come to the programme. While the other allies(RLSP, LJP) of NDA in Bihar took part in this program. Union Minister Ramvilas Paswan and Upendra Kushwaha joined the yoga camp organized on the occasion of World Yog Day in Hajipur.

However, till yet no information regarding this has been issued by Nitish Kumar on Yoga Day. While Deputy Chief Minister of Bihar Sushil Modi did not give much importance to this incident and Said,”It is not necessary that he would be involved in every program, this is not a question about JDU, I know more than a dozen people who are present here and they belong to JDU, it is not necessary that All the people come here to join here.”

In this program, Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad and Ramkripal Yadav also participated and followed the Yoga. Governor Satyapal Malik inaugurated the program organized at Pataliputra Sports ground in Patna. On this occasion, Governor Satyapal Malik said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has brought Yoga to the world. He appealed to people to do yoga every day. Union Minister in the Yoga Program, Ravi Shashankar said, “Yoga adds. India’s culture is being added and we are connecting people of the country through yoga. “

So it is confirmed that in the Bihar’s Political Corridor, something is cooking between JDU and BJP. And if JDU did it, then it might be a masterstroke before the 2019 General Elections and BJP could be seen a political Government change in India. Priorly, JDU is demanding more seats than BJP in the upcoming elections and saying that BJP should compromise with it as they are the big political group.
