Bihar Ex-Deputy CM Sushil Modi named for Rajya Sabha poll in state

Nov 27, 2020 22:52 IST

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Friday named former Deputy Chief Minister of Bihar Sushil Kumar Modi as its candidate for the December 14 Rajya Sabha bypoll in the state. The election will be held on December 14 if the rival alliance led by the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) decides to contest. Modi, the former Deputy CM, had been kept out of the state Cabinet, despite the BJP managing to secure more seats during the recently concluded Bihar Assembly polls than its alliance partner, Chief Minister Nitish Kumar-led Janata Dal (United). The new Bihar Cabinet has two new Deputy CMs, BJP's Tarkishore Prasad and Renu Devi, replacing Sushil Modi.
