The Jitan Ram Manjhi government Friday passed floor test comfortably as RJD and Congress rallied behind JD(U) government extending outside support to it. As the BJP staged walkout, there was no need for voting.
Sources said though RJD chief Lalu Prasad is keen on joining the JD(U) government, former CM Nitish Kumar reportedly gave thumbs down to idea with the belief that there would be “vote for development in 2015 Assembly election on strength of JD(U) alone”.
Chief Minister Jitan Ram Manjhi made it clear that he was “not a statue of wax or one who can be controlled by remote”.

Manjhi alleged the BJP had spent Rs 8,000 cr in poll campaign in Bihar alone. Assembly Opposition leader Nand Kishore Yadav said if the government could prove it, he would retire from public life.
Extending support to the Manjhi government, RJD Legislature Party leader A B Siddiqui said: “RJD is supporting JD(U) because of BJP playing a brand of divisive politics. We do not want to disturb a secular government.”
The RJD has 21 MLAs. Congress Legislature Party leader Sadanand Singh said Nitish Kumar set a great example by resigning despite majority in the House and more so for making a Mahadalit Chief Minister.
