How Nitish Kumar and Chirag Paswan figure in BJP’s Bihar game plan

The Bihar Assembly election is approaching and the main battle is between the NDA and the Mahagathbandhan. While BJP & the JDU are fighting the Bihar polls together, there is a lot of speculation about Chirag Paswan’s LJP deciding to go solo. What has also aroused the curiosity of political pundits is that the LJP chief has decided to only field candidates against Nitish Kumar’s JDU and has referred to himself as ‘PM Modi’s Hanuman’. While BJP has been trying to distance itself from Chirag Paswan calling the party a ‘vote-katuwa’, many believe that the BJP is keeping options open for the post-poll scenario. So is there more than what meets the eye as far as alliances go in Bihar? Watch this edition of In Focus where Hindustan Times’ senior editor Aditi Prasad speaks to BJP leader Guru Prakash Paswan for all the details.

'Will raise tricolour when...': Ex-J&K CM Mufti's fresh attack on Centre

Ex-J&K CM Mehbooba Mufti intensified her attack on NDA government. She held a press conference with erstwhile flag of J&K state on her table. Mufti said she would raise Indian tricolour after J&K state flag is restored. She said, “This is my flag. I've kept it here. When this (state) flag returns, we will raise that flag (tricolour) too. Our (state) flag has been robbed by dacoits. We won't raise any other flag until then (return of flag). That flag is part of our Constitution. They smashed that Constitution to smithereens. They ripped this flag apart on the day that there was a rape in Jammu, and they carried that flag and raised slogans in support of the rapists. They desecrated the Constitution, and other symbols. What do they expect from us? This is our flag. This (state) flag connects us to that (national) flag. Our ties to the national flag are not independent of this flag. When we are handed this flag, we will raise that flag too.” Mufti was released on Oct 13, 2020 after spending over a year in detention. The PDP chief was detained when centre scrapped J&K's special status in 2019.
