PM, BJP leaders congratulate Nitish; Modi says new govt to leave no stone unturned to develop Bihar

New Delhi | Prime Minister Narendra Modi asserted on Sunday that the newly sworn-in NDA government in Bihar will leave no stone unturned for the state's development and to fulfil people's aspirations, as BJP leaders joined him in congratulating Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and his two deputies on taking oath.

Defence Minister Rajnath Singh conveyed his best wishes to them and expressed hope that the new team in Bihar will write a new chapter in development and people's welfare.

In a post on X, BJP chief JP Nadda said he has full confidence that under the guidance of Modi, the government led by Kumar will realise the resolve of a developed and self-reliant Bihar.

In his post, the prime minister said he is confident that the new government in Bihar will serve the people with full dedication.

Hours after resigning as chief minister and breaking ties with the INDIA bloc, Kumar took oath of the same office for the ninth time as the BJP extended its support to him.

BJP leaders Samrat Choudhary and Vijay Kumar Sinha took oath as deputy chief ministers along with several ministers.

Addressing a press conference after Kumar's swearing in, where three BJP leaders also took oath, Nadda exuded confidence that the coalition will "sweep" the upcoming Lok Sabha elections.

"The people of Bihar had given the mandate in the last assembly polls to our natural alliance with Nitish Kumar. We are happy to have him back. Bihar has enjoyed stability whenever we have shared power. Things have looked up, be it infrastructure or law and order,” he said.

"Today marks a fresh march towards ‘Ujjwal’ (bright) Bihar. The state will again see growth propelled by a double engine under Prime Minister Narendra Modi's leadership,” the BJP chief said.

He also said "we are confident that the NDA will sweep the Lok Sabha polls and win all the 40 seats in Bihar. We will form the next government in the state after assembly polls".

Nadda mocked the INDIA bloc, which Kumar had helped form while he was in the ‘Mahagathbandhan’, calling the anti-BJP front "conceptually flawed".

"The alliance is unholy and unscientific. It was formed with the motto ‘parivar bachao’ (protect the dynasty) and ‘property bachao’, to shield those accused of corruption and to pursue politics of appeasement,” said Nadda in an apparent jibe at RJD chief Lalu Prasad, whose party lost power in the upheaval in Bihar.

Training his guns at Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, the BJP president said last year's ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra’ yielded no results, "so now he has taken out a ‘Bharat Todo Anyay Yatra’".
