New Delhi: It was in 2002 that Ram Vilas Paswan had resigned from the Vajpayee government in the aftermath of Gujarat riots. He had jettisoned the NDA accusing BJP of playing communal politics. He was particularly livid with Narendra Modi for his alleged involvement in post-Godhra riots in Gujarat.
 
After 12 years, Paswan has made a U-turn by making a comeback to the same NDA and under the leadership of the same Narendra Modi whom he had held responsible for his quitting the NDA fold.
 
What is ironic is that Nitish Kumar who refused to break alliance with BJP in the aftermath of Gujarat riots as he had no problems with Narendra Modi, has now walked off the alliance citing Narendra Modi's elevation as  BJP's PM candidate as the main reason behind his decision.
 
On the other hand, Ram Vilas Paswan who left NDA because of Modi's continuation as Gujarat CM has today no qualms in returning to NDA under the leadership of the same Modi.
 
So what has changed for Paswan in these 12 years that forced him to eat his words and accept the leadership of Narendra Modi?
