PATNA: Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar and his deputy Sushil Kumar Modi on Monday filed their nominations for State legislative council, upper House of the state legislature, for the third consecutive times in the past 12 years. The Bihar council elections are scheduled for April 26.
Kumar has not faced the voters and has been reaching the House through “back door” for the past over a decade since he became the chief minister in 2005.
Kumar was a Member of Parliament when he was elected the chief minister after the October/November 2005 assembly elections.
He was nominated to legislative council for the first time in 2006. Since then he has not faced the votes in the elections arena.
His deputy Modi too has not faced the voters in the poll arena in the past 12 years and rather chosen to be nominated to the state council, astounding political experts.
