NEW DELHI/ BENGALURU/ KARNATAKA: The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Friday expressed confidence over Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar proving majority on the floor of the house.

Yesterday, Nitish and BJP leader Sushil Modi were sworn-in as Bihar Chief Minister and Deputy Chief Minister respectively, and former has been asked to prove his majority on the floor by Governor Keshari Nath Tripathi.

“The floor test will pass through smoothly and Nitish Kumar will win the mandate. The number game is with the BJP and Janata Dal (United) (JD(U)),” BJP leader S. Prakash told ANI.

Prakash also trained guns at Rashtriya Janata Dal supremo Lalu Prasad Yadav, saying that he stands for corruption.

“The RJD and Congress have already lost their plot. The plank of corruption-free government, on which Nitish Kumar was fighting, has been won. Lalu Prasad Yadav, who stands for corruption, has been vindicated,” he said.

Similarly, another BJP leader also exhibited belief in the fact that Nitish would be able to prove majority on the floor of the house.

While reacting to Lalu’s ‘Bhasmasur’ statement for Nitish, Choubey said the one who is a demon himself, will find the other person the same.

Yesterday, Lalu dubbed Nitish as an opportunist.

"The mandate was against the BJP, to throw out Modi-Shah out of Bihar. I worshipped Nitish Kumar like Lord Shiva, but he turned out to be Bhasmasur. He said he would do anything but join hands with BJP," Lalu said.

The RJD chief claimed the CBI cases against him and his family are part of a conspiracy hatched by the BJP and Nitish.
