Patna HC dismisses petitions challenging Nitish-BJP alliance
Patna, July 31: The petitions challenging the formation of a new government by Nitish Kumar's JD-U, along with the BJP in Bihar, were dismissed by the Patna High Court on Monday.
After hearing the petitions, the court dismissed them on the ground that the new government was formed as per constitutional process.
The court observed that it has won the trust vote in the Assembly.
The Nitish Kumar-led NDA government on Friday secured 131 votes against the opposition's 108 during the floor test in the Bihar Assembly.
Nitish, who was part of the JD (U), Congress and RJD government in Bihar, walked out of the Grand alliance and joined hands with the BJP to form new government.
