    Nitish may take oath as CM on Monday

    Nitish Kumar may take oath as Bihar chief minister for a fourth successive term next week but the date has not been finalised yet, a close aide said on Thurday.
    However, speculation is rife in political circles that he will be sworn in on Monday, the day ‘Bhaiyya Dooj’ festival will be celebrated, as it is considered an auspicious day.
    He will visit the state party headquarters later Thursday to meet the newly elected MLAs and other Janata Dal-United functionaries.
    Raj Bhavan sources said they have not received any communication about when the swearing-in ceremony will take place.
    Before he is sworn-in as the chief minister again, Nitish Kumar has to tender his resignation to the governor.
    The newly elected MLAs of the National Democratic Alliance are yet to meet formally and elect Kumar as their leader.
    However, with top Bharatiya Janata Party leaders, including Prime Minister Narendra Modi, strongly endorsing Kumar as the chief minister, there are no doubts over a fourth straight term for him in the high office.
    Chief Electoral Officer H R Srinivas, meanwhile, submitted the list of winning candidates in the assembly elections to Governor Phagu Chauhan at Raj Bhavan.
