Bihar Politics: 8 Rebel JD(U) MLAs barred from Voting on Friday

Patna, Feb 19: In a big jolt to Bihar chief minister Jitan Ram Manjhi ahead of the floor test, eight rebel JD(U) MLAs were barred by the Patna High Court from voting during the trust vote on Friday.

With this order, Manjhi will lose 8 votes in its favour during the floor test tomorrow.

Manjhi still looks confident to have support from JDU members to stay in power, even after he was thrown out of the party for his rebellious attitude towards party chief Sharad Yadav and senior party leader Nitish Kumar.
