Nitish Kumar wins floor test in Bihar assembly


Chief minister Nitish Kumar will face a trust vote in the Bihar legislative assembly on Friday to prove his majority to form the state government.

Kumar was sworn in as the Bihar chief minister for the sixth time on Thursday, barely 18 hours after his surprise resignation.

Governor Keshari Nath Tripathi, who was admitted to the hospital on Wednesday as the political drama played out in Patna, returned to the Raj Bhawan late in the night and administered the oath of office to Kumar at 10am.

His surprise resignation sank the three-party “grand alliance” of his Janata Dal (United), Lalu Prasad’s Rashtriya Janata Dal and Congress that defeated the BJP in the 2015 state elections.

Kumar’s switch upset several leaders of the JD(U) as well, including parliamentarians and local unit heads. Sharad Yadav, who led the party before Kumar, is also said to be displeased with the chief minister’s “unilateral decisions”.
