On Thursday, Nitish took the oath as Bihar chief minister for the sixth time after joining hands with the BJP. He parted ways with RJD and pulled out from Grand Alliance over alleged corruption charges on former deputy chief minister Tejashwi Yadav in connection with land-for-hotels case.
After taking oath on Thursday, Nitish said the “collective” decision to part ways with the RJD and join hands with BJP was taken in the interest of the state and its people.
“Whatever decision we have taken will be in the interest of Bihar and its people. It will ensure development and justice. It will also ensure progress.
“This is a collective decision. I assure that our commitment is to the people of Bihar,” Kumar told reporters after taking oath, amid reports that senior leaders like Sharad Yadav and party MP Ali Anwar were among those unhappy with his decision to align with the BJP.
On Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi’s criticism of him, Kumar said he will give reply to all his queries and those of others at the “right time”.
Gandhi had alleged that Kumar had returned to “communal forces” for “selfish” political motives.
