Bihar Congress MLAs want to end alliance with RJD

"It was the Congress-led governments who have brought Right to Information Act, Right to Service Act, Vanavasi Rights Act, Food Security Act, Employment Guarantee programme".

Sources in the party said that the High Command was not happy with the performance of Chowdhary who, they felt, failed to keep the leaders in line after Nitish Kumar resigned from the Grand Alliance thus giving rise to rumors that numerous party legislators were considering ditching the party and cross over to the Janata Dal - U.

A rebellion has been reportedly brewing in the party's Bihar unit ever since Chief Minister Nitish Kumar broke the grand alliance which included the RJD and the Congress and joined hands with the BJP to form a new government in the state.

Amid speculation of a split in Bihar Congress, Rahul Gandhi summoned all Member of Legislative Assembly and Member of Legislative Council to Delhi on Wednesday for one-on-one chats.

In the month of July, Nitish Kumar tended his resignation as the Chief Minister of Bihar.

The Congress high command appears to have made up its mind to remove Bihar unit chief Ashok Chowdhary on the charge of plotting a split in the legislature party. As many as four MLAs did not meet these senior leaders.

"With the connivance of some people who are not traditional Congressmen... these leaders are conspiring against me", he said, adding that these leaders were behind the crisis of the party in Bihar. At a meeting with Rahul on Wednesday, the MLAs tried to impress upon the Congress leader that the RJD chief had never been faithful to Congress and that the party brass should consider ending the alliance at least "for the time being". If need be, we can get back to RJD prior to 2019 elections to defeat BJP for which Rahul and Sonia should take initiative.

Chaudhary said the rumour of a split engineered by him was an attempt to malign him. "I will go in the next couple of days", he said. "But three of these MLAs have now withdrawn their names and the matter has also been conveyed to central leadership of the party", Mishra said.

On the other hand, Nitish Kumar has kept a few ministerial positions vacant to lure the members of Congress.

Following the changes in the political parties now Congress is also seeking a break up with the RJD.
