Manage episode 274716410 series 2622657
As campaigning in Bihar warms up, the political combinations are also changing colour. Chirag Paswan's Lok Jan Shakti Party remains with the BJP at the Centre but won't ally with the Janata Dal (United) in Bihar, while Hyderabad MP Asadudddin Owaisi’s All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen has tied up with Mayawati’s Bahujan Samaj Party, Devendra Yadav's Samajwadi Janata Dal (Democratic), Upendra Khushwaha's RLSP and Om Prakash Rajbhar's Suheldev Bhartiya Samaj Party to fight all 243 seats in the polls. In this episode of ThePrint Uninterrupted, National and Strategic Affairs Editor Jyoti Malhotra speaks to Owaisi about a weak Nitish Kumar who the BJP is waiting to finish off, why his fifth alliance was put in place and what the people of Bihar really want.
