Nitish Kumar Sworn in as Bihar Chief Minister for Record Ninth Time, 8 ministers also took oath

Patna: Nitish Kumar, a seasoned political figure, made history on Sunday by being sworn in as Bihar's Chief Minister for an unprecedented ninth term. The oath-taking ceremony also saw BJP leaders Samrat Choudhary and Vijay Sinha assume their roles as deputy chief ministers. Additionally, leaders from the Janata Dal (United) and BJP, including Vijay Kumar Chaudhary, Bijendra Prasad Yadav, Shrawon Kumar, Dr Prem Kumar, Dr Santosh Kumar Suman, and Independent MLA Sumit Kumar Singh, took their oaths as cabinet ministers.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi took to X to extend his congratulations to Nitish Kumar, as well as to Samrat Choudhary and Vijay Sinha for their appointments as deputy chief ministers. In his post, the Prime Minister expressed confidence in the NDA government's commitment to Bihar's development and meeting the aspirations of its people. He conveyed his belief that the newly sworn-in team would serve the state's residents with utmost dedication.

Earlier in the day, Nitish Kumar tendered his resignation as the Chief Minister of Bihar, a decision he announced during a Janata Dal (United) legislative meeting. Following his resignation, the BJP swiftly offered its support to Nitish Kumar, paving the way for the formation of a new government. In a press interaction after submitting his resignation, Nitish Kumar explained that issues within the Mahagathbandhan alliance, comprising Lalu Prasad Yadav's Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) and Congress, along with three Left parties, led to his decision to step down. He further called for the dissolution of the Mahagathbandhan alliance in Bihar, citing its unsatisfactory state.
