New government in Bihar wins trust vote; BJP stages walkout

Patna, 24/8:The newly-formed ‘Mahagathbandhan’ government in Bihar on Wednesday comfortably won the motion of confidence amid a walkout staged by MLAs of the BJP — which has been stripped of power as a result of the recent political upheaval in the state.



Deputy Speaker Maheshwar Hazari ordered a headcount upon a request by Vijay Kumar Chaudhary, the parliamentary affairs minister, who said that though a voice vote had clearly showed support of the majority, the count would “leave no room for any confusion”.
