Will Nitish Kumar Be the Next PM? Memes Spread as Election Results Suggest Bihar CM Might Be Key Player

### Nitish Kumar as Next PM? Social Media Abuzz with Speculation Amid Lok Sabha Election Results

Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar is poised to play a significant role as the National Democratic Alliance (NDA), led by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), falls short of its ambitious “Abki Baar 400 Paar” slogan. Current trends indicate that the NDA may not reach the 300-seat mark, suggesting a potential shake-up in the political landscape.

Nitish Kumar, known for his strategic political maneuvers, could be a pivotal figure as the INDIA bloc, an alliance of opposition parties, gains substantial ground nationwide. The INDIA bloc is leading in around 230 seats, still short of the majority figure of 272 but significantly influential.

Social media has erupted with memes and speculation about Nitish Kumar’s next move. With the BJP unlikely to secure a majority on its own, many users are humorously suggesting that Kumar might switch allegiance if offered the prime ministerial position by the opposition. One user quipped, “If the BJP doesn’t cross 272 alone, the NDA govt will be too unstable. People like Nitish and Naidu can’t be trusted. All INDI has to do is say, ‘Nitish ji, aaiye, aapko PM banayenge,’ and he’ll run without looking back.”

Nitish Kumar’s reputation as a political chameleon is fueling these speculations. Known for his ability to gauge the political climate and shift alliances, some believe he might align with Rahul Gandhi’s Congress if it means a chance at the prime ministership. Another user noted, “NDA numbers are meaningless. If BJP doesn’t get 272, do you really think people like Nitish Kumar, Ajit Pawar, Chandrababu Naidu, Kumaraswamy wouldn’t switch sides?”

The humorous and satirical takes continue to pour in. One user shared a screenshot of a report where Nitish Kumar wished Prime Minister Modi to become a chief minister again, commenting, “Nitish Kumar is the wily old-fox of Indian politics, he knows the direction of the wind. Is this really a slip of the tongue? Or Nitish getting back at Modi for sidelining him recently?”

With the BJP potentially needing support from allies like Nitish Kumar and Chandrababu Naidu, the political dynamics are in flux. Another social media post speculated, “BJP is now at the mercy of Nitish Kumar and Chandrababu Naidu. What if #INDIA alliance offers PM post to either of them, can they shift?”

As the election results unfold, the role of Nitish Kumar in the formation of the next government remains a topic of intense discussion and speculation, both in political circles and among the general public. Whether he will indeed switch sides or remain with the NDA will be a critical factor in the coming days.
