Nitish Kumar ended JD(U)'s alliance with BJP in 2013 after BJP chose Narendra Modi as its PM face.
The BJP on Tuesday said the ruling grand alliance in Bihar appeared to be on the verge of collapse and claimed that Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chief Minister Nitish Kumar
had a "natural admiration" for each other.The BJP courted the JD(U) president
saying he continues to retain his personal image but is troubled by "corrupt and criminal" antecedents of leaders of his allies, the RJD and the Congress.
Its spokesperson GVL Narsimha Rao said, "The coalition in Bihar is riddled with internal contradictions. While there is a natural admiration between the prime minister and Nitish Kumar, the open attacks among the alliance partners signal a massive churn."
"It appears the alliance is on the verge of a collapse," he added.
Even if the grand alliance survived it would be a troubled coalition waiting for only a trigger to fall apart, he added.
The BJP's comments came after the JD(U) lashed out at the Congress following Ghulam Nabi Azad's swipe at Nitish Kumar, saying those with many principles take different decisions.
