Bihar Floor Test Highlights: Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar won the trust vote for his NDA-led government by 129 votes in Bihar Assembly on Monday.

Bihar Floor Test Highlights: The Bihar State Assembly passed a no-confidence motion against Speaker and RJD leader Awadh Bihari Choudhary.

Nitish Kumar's coalition government won the trust motion by 129 votes. Soon after the announcement of result, opposition leaders walked out of the Assembly.

RJD leader Awadh Bihari Chaudhary was removed from his position as speaker of the Bihar assembly after a resolution was supported by 125 members and opposed by 112 members.

Before the floor test of Chief Minister Nitish Kumar's government to demonstrate their majority, RJD MLAs Chetan Anand, Neelam Devi, and Prahlad Yadav were observed sitting on the government's side in the Bihar Assembly, delivering a significant blow to the Opposition.

In response, former Bihar Deputy CM and RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav remarked, “MLAs should sit on their respective seats till the end of voting, otherwise voting will be considered invalid."

Earlier, Nitish Kumar was part of the Mahagathbandhan. However, he left that alliance to take oath for the record ninth time as the Bihar chief minister on January 28 — this time with the BJP's support.

The NDA coalition, bolstered by the inclusion of Hindustani Awam Morcha's four MLAs led by former Chief Minister Jitan Ram Manjhi, braces for the Bihar assembly's critical floor test amidst swirling speculation.

Meanwhile, the Congress, wary of poaching attempts, relocates its 19 MLAs from Telangana to 5, Deshratna Marg, the bungalow once occupied by RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav. On the other front, RJD legislators, alongside their Left counterparts, converge at Yadav's residence, gearing up for a unified display of strength as they head to the Vidhan Sabha on Monday.
