The fact that the RJD will play the senior partner in the coalition is evident from the fact that it made Nitish reach out to Tejashwi Yadav. Nitish also went to former chief minister, Rabri Devi's residence soon after tendering his resignation.

There is also a possibility of Nitish shifting to national politics next year after making Yadav the chief minister of Bihar. The two leaders however refused to comment on this issue and said that they are here to serve the people of Bihar.
