The National Democratic Alliance (NDA) on Sunday elected Nitish Kumar as their leader at a meeting in Patna, paving the way for the 69-year-old to become chief minister of Bihar once again. The meeting is being held to decide the framework for government formation in Bihar, days after the NDA won the Assembly election.

The NDA meeting was held at Kumar’s official residence at 1, Aney Marg, in Patna. Defence minister Rajnath Singh was also present at the meeting. The NDA leaders further decided that Sushil Modi will be the deputy chief minister and the swearing-in ceremony is likely to take place on Monday.

Minutes before the NDA meeting, Kumar’s party Janata Dal (United) had elected Kumar as the legislature party leader. He will now go the Governor house to stake claim to form the government.

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), which fought the Bihar Assembly election along with the JD(U) as part of NDA, had promised that Kumar will be the chief minister if the alliance wins the electoral battle. Vikassheel Insan Party (VIP) and Hindustani Awam Morcha (HAM) were other constituents of NDA in Bihar.
