Bihar News: BJP's Samrat Chaudhary and Vijay Sinha to be Appointed as Deputy CMs

Patna: In a significant political development, Nitish Kumar tendered his resignation to Bihar Governor Rajendra Arlekar on Sunday. Subsequently, the JD(U) leader is set to form a new government with the backing of the NDA, resulting in the elevation of two BJP leaders, Samrat Chaudhary (State BJP Chief) and Vijay Sinha (Leader of Opposition in the Bihar assembly) as Deputy Chief Ministers.

Unanimous Approval from Bihar MLAs

The decision to form the NDA government received unanimous approval during the legislative party meeting attended by Bihar MLAs. The coalition, comprised of the BJP, JD(U), and other allied parties, witnessed the selection of Samrat Chaudhary as the leader of the legislative party and Vijay Sinha as the deputy leader.

Before Nitish Kumar's resignation, the BJP had already expressed its commitment to forming a government in collaboration with Kumar's JD(U) and other coalition partners.

Emotional Moment for Samrat Chaudhary

Expressing his emotions on the appointment, Samrat Chaudhary stated, "The BJP has made a historic decision in my life. Being elected as the leader of the Legislative Party and becoming part of the government is a deeply emotional moment for me."

He further reflected on the mandate received in 2020, emphasizing the commitment to Bihar's development and ending the perceived influence of Lalu Yadav. Chaudhary highlighted the BJP's decision to support Nitish Kumar's proposal to prevent 'Jungle Raj' in Bihar.

Nitish Kumar Ends Alliance with Mahagathbandhan

In a decisive move, Nitish Kumar officially severed ties with the 'Mahagathbandhan,' marking the end of the coalition's rule in the state. During a meeting with Governor Rajendra Arlekar, Kumar declared, "We have chosen to break ties with the 'Mahagathbandhan' in the state."

The rapid sequence of political events was triggered by a social media post from Rohini Acharya, daughter of former Chief Minister and RJD chief Lalu Yadav. Her post criticized the JD(U), labeling it as a 'socialist party' that claims progressiveness but adjusts its ideology based on changing winds.
