Nitish Kumar Offers Exit Strategy To BJP Leader After Move Against Speaker
Nitish Kumar, the chief minister of Bihar, anticipates that the BJP’s Awadesh Narayan Singh, the chairman of the Legislative Council, will resign on his own after the new Grand Alliance’s 55 MLAs submitted a no-confidence resolution against Speaker Vijay Kumar Sinha.
Nitish Kumar has long advocated for Mr. Sinha’s resignation. The Chief Minister frequently lost his patience with Mr. Sinha, accusing him of flagrantly violating the Constitution by raising issues with his government when it was allied with the BJP.
Although the Chief Minister has friendly relations with Awadesh Narayan Singh of the BJP, sources claim that leaders of Mr. Kumar’s Janata Dal (United) or JD(U) are currently negotiating with him to persuade him to step down rather than face a motion of no confidence. According to reports, the Grand Alliance believes that Mr. Singh continuing as the Legislative Council Chairman would send the incorrect message given that a new non-BJP government is currently in office.
The Speaker of the Bihar Assembly is in Delhi to talk with the BJP leadership about the situation about whether to resign or face the motion of no confidence. The Speaker and the Chief Minister’s relationship has long since worsened. When the JD(U) and BJP were allies in Bihar, Mr. Kumar had frequently pleaded with the party to get rid of him.
According to the regulations, the no-confidence resolution against Mr. Sinha can only be discussed in the house two weeks after it has been submitted. The no-confidence motion rule won’t be a problem because the first Bihar assembly session would begin on August 24 after Mr. Kumar took a new oath of office as Chief Minister.
