Patna, India: Soon after Nitish Kumar’s resignation as Bihar’s Chief Minister, the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) announced its intention to form a new government in the state, forging an alliance with the Janata Dal (United).
“The unanimous decision to form an NDA government with JD(U) and other allies was taken in the legislative party meeting, prioritizing the welfare of Bihar’s people,” declared BJP national general secretary Vinod Tawde. He further announced the election of Samrat Chaudhary as the leader of the legislative party and Vijay Sinha as the deputy leader.
Meanwhile, senior BJP leader and former deputy CM Tarkishore Prasad confirmed that Chaudhary and Sinha are the frontrunners for the deputy CM positions. “Their recent party elections solidifies their standing as our likely faces for the deputy CM posts,” he stated.
Chaudhary, visibly moved by his election, expressed his gratitude to the BJP. “This is a monumental moment for me, one brimming with emotion. Being chosen as the legislative party leader to participate in the new government is a privilege. Remember the 2020 mandate we received? It was about Bihar’s development and eradicating Lalu Yadav’s reign of terror. When Nitish Kumar proposed ending jungle raj in Bihar through the NDA, ensuring no space for Sanjay Jha’s influence, we wholeheartedly supported it,” he declared.
Kumar’s Exit from Mahagathbandhan:
Earlier in the day, Kumar had cited lack of progress within the Opposition’s INDIA bloc as the reason for his resignation from the Bihar Mahagathbandhan. “I resigned as CM and requested the Governor to dissolve the state government,” he informed reporters after submitting his resignation to Governor Rajendra Arlekar. Kumar described the Mahagathbandhan’s situation as untenable, stating, “Despite exhausting all efforts to revitalize the INDIA bloc, their apathy left me with no choice.”
