Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar sailed through the much-anticipated floor test on Monday as his government won a vote of confidence in the legislative assembly. The National Democratic Alliance (NDA) government—comprising Kumar's Janata Dal (United) and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)—secured 130 votes in the 243-member assembly. The triumph came as Kumar's former Mahgathbandhan ally, the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD), staged a walkout.
