Nitish Kumar to take oath as Bihar Chief Minister today for fourth straight term
Janata Dal (United) president Nitish Kumar will take oath as the Chief Minister of Bihar for the 4th straight term on Monday afternoon after closely-fought legal assembly elections in the state.
Nitish Kumar, after fulfilling Guv Phagu Chauhan to stake claim to form NDA government in Bihar, had on Sunday revealed that the oath-taking, along with the swearing-in ceremony of the new cabinet, will be held at around 4.30 pm on Monday.
The leaders of the NDA legislature celebration, which had actually secured a slim victory in the recently-concluded election in Bihar, had on Sunday met to deliberate on choosing a leader to lead the celebration. It had called Kumar as the leader of the NDA legislature celebration thus paving the way for his return as primary minister for the fourth successive term.
BJP’s Tarkishore Prasad, the MLA from Bihar’s Katihar, will replace Sushil Modi as his deputy.
The BJP had, from the beginning of the election project, had actually maintained that Nitish Kumar will be the Chief Ministerial prospect for the NDA government in the state.
Shivanand Tiwari, a leader of the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) which emerged as the single-largest party in the Bihar polls, on Sunday hit out against the leading management of the Congress party with whom it combated the elections as part of the grand alliance in the state.
Calling the Congress a “shackle” for the alliance, Tiwari said the celebration had actually objected to on 70 seats however did not hold as lots of rallies.
” Congress ended up being a shackle for the Mahagathbandhan. They had fielded 70 prospects however didn’t hold even 70 public rallies. Rahul Gandhi came to Bihar for just 3 days. Priyanka didn’t come. Individuals who were unfamiliar with Bihar came here. This is not right,” Tiwari stated.
Taking a potshot at the seriousness of Congress management concerning the Bihar election, Tiwari stated: “The elections remained in full speed here and Rahul Gandhi was having a picnic at Priyanka Ji’s home in Shimla.”
” Is the party run like that? Allegations can be levelled that the manner in which Congress celebration is being run is benefiting BJP … Prime Minister is older than Rahul Gandhi and did more rallies than him. Why did he do only three rallies? This shows celebration management was not serious about the Bihar election. Earlier there was news that even Piyanaka Gandhi would check out Bihar, however it did not happen either,” he included.
Notably, this is the seventh time when Nitish Kumar will take an oath to become the Chief Minister of Bihar. He had functioned as the Chief Minister of the state for little over 7 days in March 2000, after which he was chosen in 2005 when he served a full term.
He was re-elected to power in November 2010, after which he served for four years prior to resigning, and had once again taken oath as Chief Minister in February2015 He was voted to power in 2015 Assembly Election as part of the ‘Mahagathbandhan’.
However, after corruption claims were levelled against his deputy Tejashwi Yadav in 2015, Nitish resigned just to be sworn in as Chief Minister merely 12 hours later signing up with hands with the BJP to form a government in the state.
The NDA has actually secured a 125- seat majority in the 243- seat strong Bihar Legislative Assembly of which BJP won on 74 seats, JD( U) on 43 while eight seats were won by two other NDA constituents. The RJD, on the other hand, became the single-largest party with 75 seats while the Congress only won 19 of the 70 seats it had actually objected to on.
