The best example of political gimmick shown recently in Bihar politics when a sitting Chief Minister resign to sworn in as new Chief Minister of state with the support of opposition party.
Mahagathbandhan which was the alliance of JDU and RJD broken on contest of tainted deputy chief minister and RJD’s boss Lalu Yadav son Tejaswi Yadav who was the co accused in the criminal corruption case by CBI. Nitish kumar wanted his deputy CM to be resigned.
The JD(U), BJP, their allies and supporting independent MLAs together account for 132 seats in the 243-member Bihar Assembly, 10 more than the magic figure of 122.
The RJD has 81 MLAs, and even if the Congress with 27 MLAs and the CPI-ML with 3 decide to back Tejashwi, their number would add up to just 110.
