Today, the ritual of taking the oath of office will take place at the Raj Bhavan at two o’clock in the afternoon. Nitish has staked his claim to form the next government in Bihar with the backing of seven parties and 164 MLAs. This comes after Nitish severed relations with the BJP earlier in the week. The Mahagathbandhan (Grand Alliance), which consists of seven parties and one independent, will work closely together, Nitish assured reporters after his second meeting with Governor Phagu Singh Chauhan yesterday.
It is expected that the RJD will become the coalition’s senior partner with 79 members, staking claim to crucial portfolios such as finance and home.
In addition to having the lion’s share of Cabinet seats, the RJD will also claim various crucial ministries, including the finance and home departments, a senior RJD official said. As the lion’s share of seats in the Cabinet is held by the RJD, this is to be expected.
