Senior police officers of Patna made a brief visit to Tejashwi Yadav’s government bungalow late on Sunday– hours before the floor test in the Assembly. RJD leaders protested outside Tejashwi’s residence because of the late-night police visit reportedly on a complaint of ‘kidnapping’ MLAs. Meanwhile, JD(U) was planning to shift its MLAs to a hotel just for the night amid tension over floor test.
Bihar witnessed hectic parleys as parties on Sunday took stock of their MLA count a day ahead of the crucial floor test in which Nitish Kumar will prove the majority of his NDA government. In the 243-member Bihar Assembly, the NDA has a comfortable majority with 128 MLAs while the majority mark in 122. But three JD(U) MLAs were not present at the JD(U) meeting on Sunday triggering speculations over ‘khela’ (game) as RJD leader and former deputy chief minister Tejashwi Yadav suggested earlier when the Mahagathbandhan government fell because of Nitish Kumar’s switch to the NDA.
