    Nitish Kumar to take oath as Bihar CM for the 4th term

    NDA won the state election last week with a wafer-thin majority and got 125 of Bihar’s 243 assembly seats, three above the halfway mark.

    Guwahati: Janata Dal (United) chief and NDA leader Nitish Kumar to take oath on Monday for a fourth straight term as Bihar chief minister.

    Top BJP leaders including Union hone minister Amit Shah and party president JP Nadda will be attending the ceremony.

    The BJP, which has clinched 31 more seats than the 43 pocketed by Kumar’s JD (U), is likely to have two deputy chief ministers on the lines of Uttar Pradesh.

    The names of four-times MLAs Tarkishore Prasad and Renu Devi, who was chosen the leader and the deputy leader of the BJP legislature on Sunday, are doing rounds for the post.

    NDA won the state election last week with a wafer-thin majority and got 125 of Bihar’s 243 assembly seats, three above the halfway mark.

    Along with Nitish Kumar, 14 other ministers will be sworn in on Monday.

    Vijendra Yadav, Vijay Choudhary, Ashok Choudhary, Mewalal Choudhary, and Sheela Mandal from Nitish Kumar’s Janata Dal-United and BJP leaders Mangal Pandey and Rampreet Paswan are among the 14 ministers who will be inducted in Nitish Kumar’s new cabinet today.
