Alliance trouble seems to have  hit the NDA in Bihar ahead of the 2019 Lok sabha polls. According to media reports,  RLSP president and Union Minister of State for HRD,  Upendra Kushwaha,  has resigned from the cabinet of Prime Minister Narendra Modi . He is  also likely to pull of the NDA as well setting off change in political arithmetic in Bihar.

It is learnt that Kushwaha is apparently  unhappy with the seat sharing arrangement done with BJP  for the 2019 Lok Sabha elections

It may be recalled that the Rashtriya Lok Samta Party chief has been targeting the BJP and Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, a key ally of the ruling party, for weeks.

He has been upset with the BJP after it asserted that the RLSP would not be given more than two seats , even as it went out of way to accommodate Kumar by agreeing that the saffron party and the JD(U) would fight equal number of seats.

It according to media reports that  RLSP may  mostly join hands with the opposition, which includes Lalu Prasad’s RJD and the Congress.  Bihar sends  as many 40 MPs to Lok Sabha
