Sharing is Caring

New Delhi, Feb 11 (ANI): The Patna High Court on Wednesday stayed the Janata Dal United’s move to elect Nitish Kumar as their leader. Meanwhile, Kumar had earlier in the day reached the national capital to meet President Pranab Mukherjee, and parade 130 supporting MLAs to show that he enjoys a majority in the Bihar Assembly. The MLAs belong to the ruling JD (U), besides some from the RJD, Congress, CPI and Independents. Nitish, who wanted an invitation from Bihar Governor Keshari Nath Tripathi to form a new government in the state after he was elected the leader of JD (U), had said that a democratic process should be followed in Bihar. Jitan Ram Manjhi, who has refused to resign as the Bihar Chief Minister, was earlier expelled from the JD (U) by party chief Sharad Yadav.
