    JD(U) Chief Nitish Kumar on Sunday said he'll take oath as Bihar CM for fourth time tomorrow afternoon. He spoke to reporters after meeting Bihar Governor Phagu Chauhan to stake claim to form government.

    "Oath taking ceremony to be held tomorrow afternoon around 4.30 pm," Kumar said after leaving Raj Bhavan in Patna.

    When asked if former Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Modi will be part of the new cabinet, the JD(U) chief said, " The final decisions regarding the new cabinet are yet to be taken. You will be notified once it is finalised."

    Tarkishore Prasad has been unanimously elected as the leader of BJP legislature party in Bihar, party leader Sushil Kumar Modi said on Twitter.

    Janata Dal (United) chief Nitish Kumar was named as the next Chief Minister of Bihar on Sunday following National Democratic Alliance's (NDA) legislature party meeting.

    Nitish Kumar has already served as the Chief Minister for three terms. This will be his fourth term.

    This came after the leaders of NDA met at Nitish Kumar's residence in Patna to deliberate on the Bihar Elections results.

    Prior to their joint meeting, JD(U) and BJP held separate meetings in Patna today.

    On Friday, the Bihar Chief Minister had tendered his resignation to Chauhan.

    This comes as the constituents of the NDA, which secured a majority in the recently concluded Bihar Assembly Elections.

    BJP had won 74 seats, JD(U) 43, while eight seats were won by other NDA constituents.
