While Janata Dal-United reached the stage where it planned to break away from the NDA in Bihar, the BJP leadership activated the "Eknath Shinde plan" to sabotage the Nitish Kumar government but the Chief Minister spotted it within time and changed the entire game, a JD-U leader claimed.

The claim by a party leader, who was speaking on the condition of anonymity, came a day after JD-U national President Lalan Singh said that Nitish Kumar and the JD-U was targeted with the "Chirag model" during the 2020 Assembly election and as a result, the party only secured 43 seats.
