New Delhi: On Thursday, BJP and JD(U) are all set to meet again after a gap of four years and for the sixth time Nitish Kumar will take oath as Chief Minister.
Interestingly, on Thursday, only Nitish Kumar and Sushil Modi will take oath as CM and Dy CM, respectively. Other ministers will take oath later.
However, in the middle of all this, the very first sign of cracks in Janata Dal (United) has appeared, on Thursday, as one of party's MPs Ali Anwar Ansari, objected to Nitish Kumar joining hands with BJP.
Ansari is a Member of the Parliament representing Bihar in the Rajya Sabha, the upper house of the Parliament.
"Joining hands with BJP is unacceptable", he said.
"Will voice my opinion in the party if I get an opportunity," JDU MP added.
This will be his sixth innings as Chief Minister in a span of 12 years. Mr Kumar and his new team's oath ceremony today comes in the backdrop of protest by his former deputy Tejashwi Yadav who said his party, the RJD, will "go to court".
Meanwhile, RJD supporters, reportedly, blocked Mahatma Gandhi Setu, connecting north Bihar with Patna, over Nitish Kumar's resignation and forming government with the BJP.
