Patna,
Aug
10:

Nitish
Kumar
and
Tejashwi
Yadav
will
take
oath
as
Chief
Minister
and
Deputy
Chief
Minister
of
Bihar,
respectively
at
2
pm
on
Wednesday,
RJD
announced.

It
will
be
a
simple
ceremony
to
be
held
inside
Raj
Bhavan.
More
ministers
will
be
inducted
into
the
cabinet
at
a
later
stage,
sources
in
Kumar’s
JD(U)
and
Yadav’s
RJD
told
PTI.

Bihar: Nitish to take oath as CM at 2 pm tomorrow, Tejashwi to be his deputy

Kumar,
who
dumped
the
BJP-led
NDA
earlier
in
the
day,
will
be
taking
oath
as
the
CM
for
the
eighth
time.
He
will
be
heading
a
coalition
of
seven
parties
which
is
supported
by
an
Independent.

Nitish
Kumar
resigned
as
“NDA’s
Chief
Minister”
to
stake
claim
to
form
a
new
government
after
being
declared,
unanimously,
the
leader
of
the
opposition
Grand
Alliance.

After
weeks
of
simmering
tension
between
the
JD(U)
and
BJP
over
a
host
of
issues
including
caste
census,
population
control
and
the
‘Agnipath’ defence
recruitment
scheme
and
a
tiff
over
the
continuation
of
Kumar’s
former
confidante
RCP
Singh
as
a
central
cabinet
minister,
Tuesday
morning
saw
all
MPs
and
MLAs
of
the
regional
party
huddled
in
conference
at
the
chief
minister’s
residence.

The
decision
they
took
was
to
quit
the
NDA
and
join
hands
with
the
Mahagathbandhan
which
it
had
spurned
five
years
back
in
2017.
The
CM
is
understood
to
have
told
party
legislators
and
MPs
that
he
had
been
driven
against
the
wall
by
the
BJP
which
tried
to
weaken
his
JD(U),
first
by
propping
up
Chirag
Paswan’s
rebellion
and
later
through
the
party’s
former
national
president
RCP
Singh.

Singh
was
made
a
cabinet
minister
at
the
Centre
without
Kumar’s
explicit
agreement.
Consequently,
when
his
term
as
a
Rajya
Sabha
member
ended,
the
JD(U)
refused
to
give
him
another
term
as
an
MP,
thus
ending
his
stint
as
cabinet
minister
as
well.

In
the
state
Assembly,
which
has
an
effective
strength
of
242,
requiring
121
MLAs
for
a
majority,
the
RJD
has
the
highest
number
of
79
MLAs
followed
by
the
BJP
(77)
and
the
JD(U)
with
44.

The
JD(U)
also
enjoys
the
support
of
four
MLAs
of
former
Chief
Minister
Jitan
Ram
Manjhi’s
Hindustani
Awam
Morcha
and
an
Independent.
The
Congress
has
19
MLAs
while
the
CPIML(L)
has
12
and
CPI
and
CPI(M)
have
two
each.
Besides,
one
MLA
belongs
to
Asaduddin
Owaisi’s
AIMIM.
