Patna: Nitish Kumar is set to face the floor test on August 24, to demonstrate his majority in the Bihar Legislative Assembly. He took the oath as the CM of Bihar on Wednesday for the record eighth time.
In order to construct a “Mahagathbandhan” government with the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) and Congress, the Janata Dal (United) severed ties with the Bharatiya Janata Party-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA).
Assembly Speaker Vijay Kumar Sinha, a BJP MLA, was the target of a no-confidence vote moved by Bihar’s new ruling coalition. According to a senior JD(U) leader, a note bearing the signatures of numerous Grand Alliance MLAs was delivered to the assembly secretariat on Wednesday.
Meanwhile, the man of the moment,JD(U) leader Nitish Kumar, took oath as Bihar chief minister for a record eighth time on August 10. Besides this, RJD’s leader and Lalu’s son, Tejashwi Yadav, was sworn in as his deputy.
Other ministers will be included in Nitish’s cabinet later after the consultation between the three main alliance partners—the JD(U), RJD, and Congress.
