Patna: Nitish Kumar started yet another innings as the Chief Minister of Bihar as he took oath on Monday.
His new deputy CMs are BJP's Tarkishore Prasad and Renu Devi.
Janata Dal (United) chief Nitish Kumar took oath as the CM, just five days after the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) registered a comfortable win in the assembly elections.
In the assembly elections, the NDA, which was steered by the JD(U) and BJP, won 125 seats as opposed to Mahagathbandhan's 110.
Though Kumar will become the CM, his party has under-performed in the elections as the JD(U) could win 43 seats, much lower than its junior ally BJP's 74.
