Bihar: Nitish Kumar's 7th CM oath; RJD boycotts event alleging poll fraud

Janata Dal (United) chief Nitish Kumar took oath as the Chief Minister of Bihar for the seventh time on November 16.

This will be Kumar's fourth consecutive term at the helm of the state government.

Bharatiya Janata Party's Tarkishore Prasad and Renu Devi took oath as Nitish's deputies.

His deputy in the last term, Sushil Kumar Modi, did not find a berth in the cabinet.

Speaking after the ceremony, Nitish said that he will miss Modi.

Union Home Minister Amit Shah and BJP chief Jagat Prakash Nadda attended the event.

Meanwhile, opposition party Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) boycotted the ceremony, alleging miscounting of votes.
