NEW DELHI : The Nitish Kumar-led NDA government has passed the floor test in the Bihar Legislative Assembly. The opposition had walked out before the voting on Monday. Voting was conducted on the demand of the ruling party. In this, 129 votes were in favour out of the 243 MLAs.

According to the media reports, before the voting for the floor test, the opposition walked out, but the ruling party’s demand for voting is being conducted. Before this, during the discussion on the trust proposal in the House, as soon as the Chief Minister stood up to speak, RJD legislators started creating a ruckus.

In a moment of frustration, Nitish Kumar said, “People don’t want to listen to me, so let’s conduct the voting.” He took the opportunity to remind Tejashwi of the jungle raj during his speech.

Kumar reflected on the previous regime, stating, “Before us, their parents got to work for 15 years. What did they do? Was there a road? We stopped the Hindu-Muslim conflict. People were afraid to go out in the evening.”

During the speech, slogans of “Long live Tejashwi” were raised. Lathi was also charged on RJD activists protesting outside the Assembly.

Nitish Kumar further expressed, “We were all together, something happened in that. And we found out that the Congress is also afraid. And their father was also with them. Now, I came back to the old place.

Reflecting on his tenure, Nitish Kumar remarked, “Since 2005, when I got the chance to work, it’s been 18 years. I am surprised, these people don’t want to listen. How much work have I done in 15 years? How much development has been done in Bihar? Before me, their father and mother were in power for 15 years, so what was the condition of Bihar? No one used to leave the house in the evening.
