Sushil Kumar Modi Removes BJP From Twitter Bio
New Delhi: While speculations are still rife about the new Deputy Chief Minister in Bihar, BJP’s Sushil Kumar Modi hinted that he is unlikely to continue as Nitish’s deputy.
Today at 4:30 pm Nitish Kumar will take oath as the new Bihar Chief Minister in Patna. That said, all eyes are now fixed on the next deputy CM post.
Speculations grew after Sushil Kumar Modi dropped his designation as Deputy Chief Minister from his Twitter handle and removed BJP from his Twitter bio.
While the official list is not yet out, India Ahead has learned from reliable sources that Tarkishore Prasad and Renu Devi may become the state’s new deputy CMs. And, crucially, even the post of the speaker will go to their ally BJP. This reflects the change in power dynamics within the NDA-JDU alliance. With 74 seats, BJP is most likely pushing for greater representation in the Bihar government.
Today, JD(U) President Nitish Kumar will take oath as Bihar chief minister for a record fourth consecutive term.
On Sunday, Nitish Kumar met Governor Phagu Chauhan to stake claim to form NDA government in Bihar and announced that the oath-taking, as well as the swearing-in ceremony of the new cabinet, will be held at around 4.30 PM in Patna.
After a lot of speculations, Nitish was formally elected leader of the NDA at a meeting of NDA MLAs at his official residence in Patna on Sunday.
