Bihar CM Nitish Kumar: After a meeting of the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) over Bihar election 2020 results, it has been decided that JD(U) chief Nitish Kumar has been elected as NDA legislature party leader. He will take oath as Bihar Chief Minister on Monday.
The Defence Minister and BJP leader Rajnath Singh was present during the meeting of the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) at JD(U) chief Nitish Kumar's residence.
As per the report, Nitish Kumar will take oath at a swearing-in ceremony for Bihar CM, which is scheduled to be held on Monday.
Earlier in the day, RJD leader Manoj Jha had said that "How can someone become Chief Minister after getting 40 seats? People's mandate is against him, he is decimated and should decide on it."
"Bihar will find its alternative, which will be spontaneous. It might take a week, ten days, or a month but it will happen," Jha added.
Meanwhile, Tariq Anwar, Congress, said that "Earlier, Nitish Kumar Ji emerged as a good NDA leader in Bihar. But this time, his chances are not the same."
"The BJP has conspired to weaken him. Now even if he is elected as NDA’s leader or Chief Minister, someone else will have the remote to control him," he added.
As per the Bihar election 2020 results, the BJP emerged as the largest party in the ruling alliance with 74 seats, 31 more than the JD(U).
