Bihar Governor Keshari Nath Tripathi asked Chief Minister Jitan Ram Manjhi to prove his majority on the floor of the House on February 20.

“Immediately after Governor’s address of the joint session of Bihar Legislature on the opening day of Budget session on February 20, Manjhi will have to prove majority in the legislative assembly,” highly places sources in Raj Bhavan said.

There was, however, no information whether the Governor has accepted Manjhi’s request for secret ballot or not, they said.

Governor’s direction to Manjhi came hours after Janata Dal-United leader Nitish Kumar, who was accompanied by party president Sharad Yadav, Rahstriya Janata Dal leader Lalu Prasad and Samajwadi Party supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav, took the 130 MLAs to the President’s House in New Delhi to show that he enjoys majority support in the state assembly.
