Bihar: Political activities are gaining momentum ahead of the confidence motion in CM Nitish Kumar-led govt
Bihar, political activities are gaining momentum before the vote of confidence for the Nitish Kumar-led government scheduled on 12th February.
Congress on Sunday sent its MLAs to Hyderabad to rule out any kind of possible split in the party. The party has 19 MLAs in Bihar Assembly. All MLAs reached Hyderabad this evening with State Congress President Akhilesh Prasad Singh.
Earlier in the day party MLAs reached New Delhi on the directions of Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge as an attempt to keep all party legislators intact with the Grand Alliance.
The Nitish Kumar-led government has a majority with 128 members supporting the BJP-JD(U) led government. The magic figure for the majority is 122 in the 243-member Bihar Assembly.
After the exodus of JD(U), the strength of the opposition Grand Alliance has been reduced to 114. One member of AIMIM is not supporting the alliance.
