Tiger Abhi Zinda Hai: Bihar min to Nitish 
‘Tiger Abhi Zinda Hai’ (tiger is alive), commented Bihar water resources minister Sanjay Jha while summing up Nitish Kumar’s busy itinerary during the ongoing ‘Samadhan Yatra’. Jha’s remark was music to Nitish’s ears at a time when he has chalked out his plans to bring maximum number of anti-BJP parties on a single platform ahead of the 2024 Lok Sabha election. Nitish has already made it clear that he would visit various states of the country for a broader opposition unity after the assembly’s budget session. The question remains if Jha’s remark is an indication that Nitish will not quit CM post till 2025.

Deepak decided to try his new business after he got fed up with his repeated attempts to get a job of his choice. He returned to his native town Bhagalpur and opened a tea stall on roadside. Taking a dig at deputy chief minister Tejashwi Prasad Yadav for his promise to provide 10 lakh jobs, Deepak said, “If he would have kept his promise, why a graduate need to open a tea stall.”
