Ajit Singh in a fix

awaits meeting with amit shah

by-the-way-Ajit-Singh-in-a-fix-may2016How did the talks break down between Ajit Singh and Nitish Kumar? A few days ago, when KC Tyagi went to meet Kumar in Patna with Ajit’s son Jayant, the Bihar CM played a big political move and told Jayant that if his father wanted to merge his party with JD(U), the latter was ready to launch Jayant as its chief ministerial candidate in UP. Sources say, Jayant said this was a conversation for a later stage. He, on the contrary, wanted to know whether the JD(U) was ready to give his father a Rajya Sabha seat this time? Kumar said it was not possible this time, but he can promise a Rajya Sabha seat for Ajit next year. Jayant then spoke to his father. Ajit told his naïve son that in politics, the deal was always instant. And, so the communication snapped between JD(U) and Ajit. Being an experienced politician, Ajit sent feelers to BJP chief Amit Shah and planned for a meeting. This news spread to Muzaffarnagar and big group of supporters came to meet Ajit, who briefed his supporters saying that it wasn’t he who went to the BJP, but it was the BJP’s top leadership that came to meet him. One worker asked, “Choudhary sahib, how many seats will the BJP give us in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections?” Ajit admonished the worker and told him not to see so far into the future, and that they will decide on things only after sensing which way the wind is blowing at that time. Reportedly, central minister for state Sanjiv Baliyan told this to Shah, who was extremely upset. He cancelled the meeting with Ajit and Jayant, and sent a message that the meeting will take place in May, after the results for the Assembly elections are out.
