Nitish takes oath as Bihar CM again

Patna: Nitish Kumar on Thursday took oath as Bihar Chief Minister at the head of a JD-U-BJP government, within hours of dumping the Grand Alliance.

This is the JD-U President’s second innings in the last two years. He snapped ties late on Wednesday with Grand Alliance partners Rashtriya Janata Dal and the Congress over corruption charges against RJD leader and Deputy Chief Minister Tejashwi Yadav.

The Raj Bhavan here echoed with chants of “Nitish Kumar Zindabad” as Governor Keshari Nath Tripathi administered the oath to Nitish Kumar.

BJP’s Sushil Kumar Modi was sworn in as Deputy Chief Minister. The BJP offered support to Nitish Kumar after he resigned as Chief Minister on Wednesday.

Nitish Kumar took the oath in Hindi.

This is the JD-U’s second innings with the BJP in the state. Nitish Kumar had in 2013 ended his party’s association with the BJP after the party projected Narendra Modi as its prime ministerial candidate for the 2014 general election.
