Why may Nitish Kumar form New Party?

Time and again, Bihar Chief Minister and RJD Supremo remained on the different side of the River. The new President Election exposed the fragile alliance in Bihar once again. Mr. Kumar thrown his weight behind BJP nominated former Bihar Governor, Ram Nath Kovind, whereas the RJD supported Meira Kumar. The issue is continuing since long time, whether it was Demonetization or Surgical Strike, Nitish Kumar and Lalu Prasad Yadav differed in opinion. The Sahabuddin fiasco where the RJD refused to sack Don turned politician further dented the relations. One can say that the difference of opinion is common.

Even though there is a reported push towards BJP from the party within. However, there are reports that leadership is not happy with the pro-BJP stance.
