Nitish Kumar to be sworn in as CM, Sushil Modi as deputy CM
Janata Dal United (JD(U)) chief Nitish Kumar will take oath at 10 AM today as chief minister of Bihar and after handing a list of 132 MLAs to Bihar Governor KN Tripathi. Nitish will be sworn in as the National Democratic Alliance's chief minister and the BJP's Sushil Modi will be sworn in as the deputy chief minister. A floor test will take place tomorrow. Earlier, citing irreconcilable differences with the senior ally over corruption charges against Tejashwi Yadav, Kumar announced his resignation after meeting Governor Keshri Nath Tripathi, hours after the RJD supremo rejected outright the demand for his son's ouster.
