In a significant development, the Nitish Kumar-led NDA government in Bihar successfully won a vote of confidence in the assembly on Monday. The new government garnered 129 votes, demonstrating a majority, despite a walkout by opposition members during the proceedings. The Bihar assembly, with a total strength of 243 MLAs, witnessed a confident display of support for the Nitish Kumar-led government during the crucial trust vote.
Ahead of the floor test, an unexpected turn of events occurred when RJD MLAs Chetan Anand, Neelam Devi, and Prahlad Yadav were observed sitting on the government side in the Bihar Assembly, causing a significant disruption for the opposition. In response to this move, former Bihar Deputy CM and RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav emphasized the importance of maintaining seating arrangements until the conclusion of the voting process, warning that any deviation may render the voting invalid.
This trust vote outcome solidifies the Nitish Kumar-led NDA government’s position, marking a crucial step in the political landscape of Bihar.
