The former Bihar chief minister has been convicted in four fodder scam-related cases.
Political observers believe the sedition case will only add to Kanhaiya’s appeal as a politician and may well boost the chances of the formation of a non-NDA, non-RJD front under his leadership ahead of the state assembly elections.
The trouble between the two leaders had been brewing over the past few weeks following Kishor's disagreement with Kumar over the latter's support to the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) in the Parliament.
In his first direct attack on the JD(U) national president, Kishor, who joined the party in September 2018 and was elevated to the rank of its national vice-president just weeks later, lashed out at Kumar for saying that he was inducted into the party at the instance of Union Home Minister and the then BJP chief Amit Shah.
Opposition Tejashwi Yadav had demanded the chief minister, who is an ally of the BJP, come clean on the issue of Citizenship (Amendment) Act, NRC and National Population Register (NPR).
The former chief minister, who is lodged in a Ranchi jail in connection with fodder scam cases, also said the central government has given 'zero' to the dispensation in Bihar, referring to a recent NITI Aayog report.
Prashant Kishor has, over the past few days, stressed that JD(U) should contest more seats in the forthcoming assembly elections since it was a bigger party in the state.
In the past two decades, Bihar had witnessed almost similar political turmoil arising out of a prolonged deadlock over the formation of a new government not once but on two occasions.
Nitish Kumar is the Captain of NDA in Bihar and will remain its Captain in next assembly elections in 2020 also, Sushil Modi had tweeted.
Congress leader Tariq Anwar outlined JDU's missing representation from the Union Cabinet to assert that everything doesn't seem right between the two parties.
Yadav further described how the Grand Alliance was stitched in Bihar stating that the mandate was given by the people for five years against the BJP leadership.
