Putting an end to the political turmoil in Bihar, current Chief Minister Nitish Kumar wins the floor test in the state assembly with 129 votes. Meanwhile, the RJD-led opposition party leaders walked out before the voting.

In the absence of opposition party members, trust voting was done manually. He won the vote of confidence in favor against none in opposition. The chief minister who dumped his ally RJD and joined hands with BJP in January lashed out at Lalu Yadav and Rabri Devi.

In the assembly, he said, "Before this, his father and mother got the chance to work, what happened in Bihar then? Would anybody dare to go out at night at that time? Was there any road?"

He took a jibe at former deputy chief minister and ally Tejashwi Yadav "Kama rahe the ye log (they were making money)," he said. He also said that he would launch an investigation against corrupt RJD leaders. Furthermore, he alleged that RJD leaders were trying hard to take credit for JD (U)'s work.
