Swaraj Abhiyan may campaign against Nitish Kumar in Bihar polls with the party exploring the option of contesting a few seats.
Though a formal decision is to be taken in the first week of September, party leaders have indicated that they would be contesting 10 to 20 seats.
The change in the party’s stance is the direct result of the moves made by Kejriwal. Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal will go to Patna later this month, and this would be, most likely, the formal launching of his poll campaign in favour of Chief Minister Nitish Kumar.
The move apparently upset Swaraj Abhiyan’s plans. “We had plans to support Nitish Kumar. But after his alliance with Lalu Prasad, we decided not to support him,” said a senior leader.
