Bihar news: Bihar MLAs today (January 28) unanimously passed the proposal to form the NDA government in the state with Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), JD(U) and other allies. Samrat Chaudhary has been elected as the Leader of the legislative party and Vijay Sinha has been elected as the Deputy Leader in Bihar.

Samrat Chaudhary and Vijay Kumar Sinha will be the two new Deputy Chief Ministers of Bihar. 

Samrat Choudhary reaction:

After being elected as the Leader of the Legislative Party, state BJP chief Samrat Chaudhary said, "BJP did a historic thing for my life. This is an emotional moment for me to have been elected as the Leader of the Legislative Party to be a part of the government.

The mandate that we received in 2020 for the development of Bihar and to end the terror of Lalu Yadav- when the BJP received the proposal from Nitish Kumar to ensure that there is no jungle raj in Bihar and Sanjay Jha came here as his ambassador, we decided to support it."

'State of affairs within wasn't good': Nitish Kumar

In his first reaction to the political turmoil after handing over his resignation letter to the Governor, Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar said the state of affairs in the 'Mahagathbandhan' (grand alliance) formed one and a half years ago was 'not good'.

"I resigned as chief minister and requested the Governor to dissolve the government. The situation came to this pass as the state of affairs within the ruling alliance in Bihar wasn't good. I sought the advice and opinions of everyone before coming to this decision. I took all opinions and suggestions to heart. The government is being dissolved today," Nitish told reporters on Sunday.

"The alliance, which was formed one and a half years ago, was sailing through choppy waters. Though we came together on the basis of a common minimum programme and promises to the people, we failed to live up to expectations and discharge our salient duties. Eventually, we fell out and even stopped being on speaking terms. I was left with no option but to sever all ties with the alliance," the JD(U) supremo said, targeting RJD.

The official handle of Raj Bhavan of Bihar on X posted that the Governor asked Nitish to discharge his administrative duties as the acting chief minister till a new government takes shape.

"Governor Rajendra Vishwanath Arlekar accepted the resignation of Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and asked him to act as acting Chief Minister until alternative arrangements are made," the Governor's office at Raj Bhawan posted on X.
