Bihar: Nitish Kumar takes oath but Cong candidate fails it, thanks to Rahul Gandhi
Patna, Nov 20: Seven Chief Ministers across the country and more than two lakh people attended the oath-taking ceremony of Nitish Kumar and other ministers of his new cabinet in Patna on Friday, Nov 20.
While all candidates including Nitish Kumar took oath, Congress candidate Ashok Chaudhary could not turn up to the venue at right time. The one, who played the role of a perfect party pooper, was none other than but Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi.
Starting from Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal to West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee, BJP minister Venkaiah Naidu to DMK leader MK Stalin -- all were present at the swearing-in ceremony when Nitish took oath for the fifth time.
However, Ashok Chaudhary failed to reach Gandhi Maydan on time as he had gone to receive Rahul Gandhi at Patna airport.
The Congress Vice President was late to reach Patna, hence, Chaudhary could not take oath as one of the cabinet ministers of Nitish Kumar-led government.
Both Rahul and Ashok Chaudhary reached at the Gandhi Maydan at 3:00 pm, whereas the ceremony started at 2:00 pm.
