The Modi Momentum Has Stopped Due to Nitish Kumar's Actions The fact that the prime minister's bluff has been called is the significance of the shift in Patna's situation.

"

"

Beyond Bihar, there is just one importance of the upheaval in Patna's political landscape: the Narendra Modi Momentum suddenly doesn't appear to be unstoppable. 

"

"

It appeared as though the two Chanakyas had placed an extremely strong Godrej lock on India's political near future after the coup in Maharashtra that was supported by the Enforcement Directorate and had thrown away the key.

"

"

Elections in 2024 appeared to be a done thing, but Nitish Kumar has found the key, changing that.

"

"

The Modi Momentum is based on a psychological attitude that has been intentionally cultivated to give the prime minister undeserved credit for leadership abilities that do not exist, such as a charismatic grip on the public's imagination.

"

"

The Modi Momentum is maintained, like other psychological ploys, by constant and unrelenting drum-beating about questionable accomplishments and dubious ability.

"

"

The Modi Momentum is a political initiative that aims to make dissenters and adversaries, both inside and outside of the BJP, feel exposed to the prime minister's imposing political image. Every potential challenger inside the BJP, including the Rajnath Singhs and Nitin Gadkaris, has been made to feel small and unworthy in comparison to the prime minister.

"

"

Non-BJP chief ministers like Naveen Patnaik and Jagan Reddy have allowed themselves to feel frightened by the prime minister's overly-hyped reputation, as well as the coercive power of the national agencies.

"

"

The BJP is also not in a position to accuse Nitish of "betrayal." The BJP leadership is steadfast in its commitment to an aggressive expansionist policy and is not willing to put up with any sort of pushback or pockets of regional autonomy.

"

"

Sooner or later, Nitish would have succumbed to the new political megalomania of Naya Bharat's new overlords.
