Nitish Kumar poses a big threat to Modi

It’s just roughly a year is left for the next Lok Sabha elections, but speculations about the results have already begun. The consensus of sorts has emerged among many commentators that the BJP is on the downhill, and even if the party emerges as the frontrunner, it is unlikely to be close to its 2014 performance.

On the other hand, Prime Minister Modi will be facing a tough competition from Bihar CM Nitish Kumar who is planning to contest from Varanasi constituency. Though Nitish Kumar formed an alliance with the BJP, it’s buzzed that Nitish Kumar will end his alliance with the BJP soon planning to form a ‘third front’ to defeat BJP in the 2019 elections.
