“Congratulations to @NitishKumar ji & @SushilModi ji.

Looking forward to working together for Bihar’s progress & prosperity,” he tweeted

Kumar and Sushil Modi were administered the oath of office by Governor Keshari Nath Tripathi at the Raj Bhawan in Patna today.

Prodded by Kumar, the JD(U) had walked out of the NDA in July 2013, ending the 17-year-old alliance, after Narendra Modi was nominated head of the BJP’s campaign committee for the 2014 Lok Sabha polls.
