Uproar in the house over Nitish’s presence
The Speaker’s post is being contested for the Bihar Legislative Assembly. Meanwhile, the opposition in the House has created a ruckus about Chief Minister Nitish Kumar. Actually, the opposition has demanded that Nitish Kumar be removed from the House as he is not an MLA. At the same time, Protem speaker Jeetan Ram Manjhi has said that he is the Chief Minister, so he can stay in the Assembly. RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav objected to the presence of Chief Minister Nitish Kumar. Apart from this, the presence of Ashok Chaudhary and Mukesh Sahni was also objected to. The opposition says that Nitish Kumar is not an MLA, so he should not be present in the House. Slogans were also raised during this period.
However, Protem speaker Jeetan Ram Manjhi said that Nitish Kumar is the Chief Minister of Bihar, so he can remain present in the House. Manjhi said, Nitish Kumar will not participate in the election for the post of speaker, but he will remain in the House.
Election for the post of speaker is being held after 51 years
Explain that after the formation of a new government in Bihar, elections are going to be held this time for the post of Assembly Speaker. The election for this post is going to be held after nearly 51 years. RJD MLA Awadh Bihari has been nominated for the Grand Alliance. On the other hand, BJP MLA Vijay Sinha has been fielded by the NDA.
Voting is being held in the presence of Protem Speaker Jeetan Ram Manjhi on Wednesday. The first will be decided by voice. But if objections are raised, members will elect the Speaker of the Assembly by putting a tick mark in the lobby.
