Patna (Bihar) [India], July 27 (ANI): Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar will prove majority in the Bihar Assembly tomorrow. It will be a special session where the new Janata Dal (United) and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) alliance will prove their political mettle. Kumar earlier today took oath as Bihar Chief Minister. BJP leader Sushil Kumar Modi also took oath as Bihar Deputy Chief Minister. Bihar Governor Kesrinath Tripathi administered oath to Kumar and Modi at Raj Bhavan. This is the sixth time, when Nitish has taken oath as the Bihar Chief Minister. With this, the political uncertainty in Bihar that loomed in on Wednesday after Kumar's resignation ended. Bihar witnessed heated political environment soon after Nitish Kumar resigned on Wednesday as Bihar Chief Minister to protest against his Deputy and Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) Supremo Lalu Yadav's son Tejashwi Yadav's stubbornness to stay in the Cabinet despite being named in F.I.R. over the corruption charges. However, Tejashwi has put onus on Nitish and Bharatiya Janata Party (NJP) for the latest political development in the state. Tejashwi said that political vendetta against him exposed the Opposition's viciousness. "I delivered manifolds than what was expected of me. My performance perturbed our ally & BJP. Vendetta against me exposes their viciousness," he tweeted. The RJD on Thursday morning was forced to cancel its protest march to Raj Bhavan to oppose Kumar's swearing-in ceremony due to the probationary orders. (ANI)
