Bihar Floor Test: Jd(u) Mlas Shifted To Hotel Ahead Of Crucial Trust Vote

Amid the anxious wait and huddles surrounding the upcoming Bihar floor test, the ruling Janata Dal (United) has decided to relocate its MLAs to a hotel near the legislature in preparation for the trust vote.

The trust vote is a crucial moment for Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and his newly formed alliance with the National Democratic Alliance (NDA).

Last month, Nitish Kumar took his oath as CM for the ninth time after realigning with the NDA-BJP alliance, abandoning the opposition’s INDIA bloc.

On January 28, Nitish Kumar resigned as chief minister, citing the unrest within the Mahagathbandhan as the reason for his departure.

Three JD(U) MLAs missed a crucial meeting ahead of the floor test, adding to the suspense surrounding the impending vote.

JD(U) has issued a whip requiring all its MLAs to be present for the floor test, with Jitan Ram Manjhi also instructing its MLAs to vote in favor of the NDA government in the Bihar Vidhan Sabha.

Speaker of the Bihar Assembly Awadh Bihari Chaudhary has declared he will not resign before the budget session begins, despite facing a motion of no-confidence from the newly formed NDA government.

The JD(U)-NDA alliance, comprising JD(U), BJP, and HAM(S) MLAs, along with an Independent MLA, boasts a majority of 128 in the House of 243.

The ruling alliance needs 122 votes to surpass the majority mark in the House.

The trust vote scheduled for February 12 will be a significant moment in determining the fate of Nitish Kumar’s government in Bihar.
