On July 26, Bihar went from blue to saffron in the country’s colour-coded map that is kept in BJP president Amit Shah’s office. The blue on the map signifies non-BJP ruled states. As the colour blue shrinks some more, so do the chances of Opposition putting up a joint fight against Narendra Modi in 2019.

Twenty months after losing Bihar to the Mahagathbandhan (Grand Alliance) comprising RJD, JDU and the Congress, the BJP has bounced back to form government in the state. Party leaders are quick to give credit to ‘master-strategist’ Shah for out-manoeuvring the Opposition not just in Bihar, but effectively ensuring it remains in disarray at the national level.
