To get out of the clout of Nitish Kumar, the party has planned some proactive strategy to grow its power in the state that include wooing the extremely Backward Castes (EBCs) and Maha Dalits in Bihar. On the other hand, the party has also strategised to help its ally if things turn sour.A function was organised by Arun Kumar, former JD (U) MP from Jehanabad, where BJP national general secretary Sanjay Joshi was invited by Nitish. His presence in the function was supported by some other detractors of Nitish like Upendra Kushwaha and Magni Lal Mandal.
"What do you make of it when the detractors of Nitishji invite a very powerful BJP leader like Sanjay Joshi for a function? What kind of message do you want to convey? You can now read the writing on the wall," said a senior JD(U) leader.
