People always say that politics in Bihar is messed up. Just too many ups and downs. According to political experts, the latest “up” is the age of dynamism that set in under the rule of Nitish Kumar, the top ruler of Janta Dal (United) (JD(U)). Many believe that Nitish is the ‘Development Man’ of Bihar (or a hero) who can rescue the state from economic and social backwardness and take it to a different level of greatness. This powerhouse of a man will be celebrating his birthday on the 1st of March.
Since 2005, Nitish has been the CM of Bihar. Well, ofcource, except the few months when he stepped down due to certain political developments. His previous alliance was with BJP. But, he said goodbye to NDP a little before the 2014 Lok Sabha elections. He went on to join hands with the Lalu Prasad Yadav led Rashtriya Janta Dal (RJD). In a (not so) shocking turn of events, he returned to the NDA in 2017.
The Biharis absolutely love Nitish. Well, they were used to real low expectations. And, when Nitish came into power, things became fabulous. Starting from appointing more than 1,00,000 school teachers to ensuring that doctors worked in primary health centers to cutting female illiteracy by half to turning around a lawless state by cracking down on criminals and doubling the income of the average ‘Bihari,’ he’s done it all.
With the 2019 Lok Sabha elections on our noses, everybody is a bit curious about the JD (U)-BJP alliance. Poll surveys predict a massive win for Nitish and BJP in Bihar. Let’s see what Ganesha has to say:
As per Nitish Kumar’s horoscope, the Lord of Ascendant Mercury is placed in the 9th house (House of Fortune) with Sun and Jupiter. This has turned him into the super-cool leader that he is. Not to mention his communication skills and mass appeal. The exchange between the 9th house Lord Saturn and 4th house Lord Mercury has led to the formation of ‘Rajyog.’ This is a very strong planetary configuration in his chart. Meaning, it has given him dope success and fame.
Besides, the exalted Venus is placed in the 10th house, which is another positive factor for his leadership qualities. He is an awesome leader with exceptional skills. Always motivated. Always enthusiastic. However, Venus is afflicted by Mars. So, his political journey can become like a see-saw, experiencing both ups and downs. Nitish Kumar is currently under the influence of Rahu Mahadasha and Saturn Bhukti. As Saturn is into Rajyog, he is likely to do well in the Lok Sabha election. He’ll take up the electoral and political challenges very bravely.
Nitish will strike some brilliant chords with the voters, making him the real deal- important and prominent. In fact, he will be quite important in the upcoming national politics. However, Rahu and Saturn are placed in a difficult situation with each other. He may face tough opposition. Besides, his coordination with allies may not be very smooth (ouch!). Differences may crop up between him and his allies. To make things worse, there might be issues and complications in his own party.
His chart shows that his party may get more seats than the last Lok Sabha election. However, the tally may not be up to his expectations. So, he’ll be dissatisfied a bit. In the phase after 7th June 2019, he may develop some health issues. Thus, he should be real careful about his work-stress.
Here’s to wishing him a great year ahead!
