Majhi (Bihar C.M. ) sacked by JDU.
Who will be next CM?
is there a split of Maha dalit vote bank ?
JDU cannot sack Majhi from the post of CM. They can sack him from the party, but till the next trust-vote called by the parties, unless the CM fails to garner majority in assembly, the CM is Majhi if he doesn't resign. Rumour is he is threatening to dissolve the assembly, which is also in his right as CM as he has proven majority already once. So lets see the drama unfold.
Thanks. ... just typed as soon as I saw on TimesNOW
Real political circus going on in Bihar. I hope BJP does not try the short-cut and break-up JDU to form government.
The elections are a few months away, keep Manjhi on their side and get the Mahadalit vote bank for next elections. With the state of Bihar, it should be smooth sailing for BJP in this year's elections. :thumb:
Now the Dalits and Mahadalits will all gang up against JD and RJD in the next State election.
One wonders if the Governor will agree to dissolve the Assembly as demanded by Manji.
What is the Constitutional position.
Dissolving the Assembly is the CM's prerogative or that of the Cabinet?
Can the Legislature Party remove the CM without a no confidence vote in the Assembly?
Dissolution is the cabinet's prerogative, not just the CM's, so no go here. The governor can't dissolve without the cabinet's approval and Manjhi does not have majority in the cabinet. He has just 7 while 21 are against.
The MLA backing Nitish will present the letter of support to the governor, who will appoint the new CM and it will be ratified on the floor. That's my understanding.
This is why we can never really have a dictator without the cabinet being puppets or entirely pliable. CM or PM are nothing without the cabinet, which of course they can chose, but that would not have happened here because Manjhi was a puppet and he would not have been given free hand to appoint his cabinet.
A presidential system approaches closer to dictatorship, though a US system where legislature and executive are separate taken real power out of a would be dictator.
JDU in trouble.I knew it ego of Nitish will one day affect JDU . A set back to his plan to garner both Muslim and dalit votes.
He did many good work with his alliance with BJP and his separation from BJP was one big blunder.
It's all an elaborate trick. Nitish is making Manjhi break away a faction of JDU, and take BJP support to prove majority in Bihar Assembly, so that he (JDU+RJD combine) can win on sympathy vote, when state elections are held as scheduled (this November). If Manjhi fails to prove majority, Nitish wants immediate state polls, so that he can ride the anti-Modi wave post Delhi polls.
Manjhi is a political hot-potato, and BJP would be wise not to touch him, let the drama in Patna run its course, with BJP state unit being completely insulated, so that if polls are held immediately, they go in with a squeaky clean image.
You are so wrong. Anti-Modi wave in Delhi? AAP didn't get the votes based against Modi. Local issues were the focus and state BJP lacked the initiative.
Next, Bihar is a different game. It's caste dominated and given, it's relatively bigger state and its economic/development struggle, Modi will be very big factor. Now, the last thing, JDU will want is fresh elections, they will face both anti incumbency votes and anti-Dalit accusations. And their Janata Parivar itself isn't ready or coordinated enough, so they would want more time. November elections would be their preference.
Btw, don't miss the point that even in this election the vote share of BJP actually increased from the LS 2014 election as per the Exit polls, but AAP gained more in form of Congoons and sundry apparently losing their own vote share drastically. Now, Congoons had a substantial vote share in Delhi, which is not the case in Bihar. Also, when all other parties in concert called their own voters to support AAP, which is not gonna happen in Bihar.
During Obama's visit, CIA station chief in Delhi chaired a meeting of media-tycoons, and it was decided that the media would take a 180-degree turn against BJP, and switch to relentless negative publicity. It's probably how "#AAPCheckmated" Kiran Bedi could turn into "#BJPliabilityBedi" overnight. If AAP wins, then the media does wield a lot of political power in India. Needless to say, they will continue this campaign even during Bihar polls. That's what I meant by the so-called "counter-Modi wave".
Local issues didn't win AAP Delhi Elections, it was a false utopia based on dole-schemes that rely on revenues (which will any way dry up after GST), won them Delhi. Khujli wants the centre to implement GST, so that when his revenues dry up, he can blame BJP for his non-performance.
too much importance too CIA station cheif
Why would they want modi too lose when he is trying to get around nuclear liability laws so that amerciab comapnies invest and makes profit..
if likes of bhusan comes then american can forget those nuclear deal
How do you know about CIA station chief' meeting? Assuming you are not joking !!!
Because the US decided that it wants a manageable Modi who like ABV, will lose power in 2019, and not a future Putin. Hence Obama timed his unwarranted "religious intolerance" comment with the Delhi state polls. NGOs and lobbies practically run the US government, and with continuing action against these interests, Modi was beginning to look like a future-Putin. The tipping point was denial of visa to two senior people from the Vatican.
From here on out, the Indian Media will only be cynical and negative about everything Modi does, and will seldom be appreciative. Modi should take a cue from KCR (Telangana). When he saw that the predominantly Andhra-owned Telugu news industry was against his agenda of separate Telangana state, and had unqualified cynicism and negativity about his movement, KCR immediately rented a broadcast license from Tamil Nadu based RajTV group, and started a TV news channel of his own, which focused on his political agenda. Soon, that channel vacuumed viewership away from Andhra-owned channels to an extant that KCR could afford his own license, and start "T-News." As the separate statehood movement gained traction, T-News became such a big thing, and ate into so much of Andhra-owned channels' revenues, that it forced those channels to adjust their content to be more objective to the movement. Today, each of those Andhra media houses started Telangana-specific news channels to stay relevant here.
Modi already has plenty of connections to force the Indian media to return to objectivity, by eating into their bottomlines. The BJP and its friends in the industry should start several new media outlets to dilute the market of the current media groups. The right time to do that is now. Those channels will ripen just in time for 2019.
Jitan Ram Manjhi created nightmare for Nitish Kumar. But I still can't understand why Nitish Kumar abdicated in favour of Manjhi. :shocked:
NK wanted to become a puppet-master. NK installed Manjhi because this guy has zero political base and hence could be easily controlled through remote control. Manjhi was a product of Nitish Kumar-Sharad Yadav spat. Manjhi proved to be too strong-willed.
This is the same media which had done negative propaganda, abused, demoralized about Modi for 12 whole years and yet, Modi kept on winning. And ultimately, won the biggest thing by becoming PM. So our biased media isn't a new but rather Delhi state BJP lack of initiative which never fought back.
Also, results hasn't been announced so I would like to remain optimistic. And assuming exit polls are correct, of course the reason would be Kejriwal handling the local issues directly. He has offered a solution to the local issues such as water, electricity etc. Now whether the solution (freebies) is effective or not is a different debate as the Delhi public has brought into such populist schemes of Kejriwal.
Of course, it's only Kejriwal game to gain power in Delhi and next, he will cause drama and instability against Centre by blaming them for his non-performance as you wrote yourself.
