Nitish Kumar sworn in as the Chief Minister of Bihar for the 6th time

Barely a day after his resignation, Nitish Kumar once again becomes the Chief Minister of Bihar along with Sushil Kumar Modi as the Deputy Chief Minister. In the past 12 years, this is the 6th time that Nitish Kumar has taken oath as the Chief Minister of Bihar. He was sworn in by the Governor of Bihar Keshri Nath Tripathi as the crowd cheered at Patna's Raj Bhavan. His unexpected resignation yesterday and later on his alliance with BJP to reclaim his seat, has left the former grand alliance baffled. Governor of Bihar told Nitish Kumar to prove his majority in the state Legislative Assembly within two days of taking oath.
