During his meeting with Governor Satyapal Malik, Bihar acting president Kaukab Quadri and others were also present.
Tejashwi Yadav has claimed that he has adequate number of MLAs to succeed in floor test if given a chance to prove majority.
“We on behalf of people of Bihar are reiterating our passionate appeal, which we had made on 27th July 2017. We are inspired to write you all over again in view of a principled position taken by the governor of Karnataka highlighting the significance of Single Largest Party in the formation of the government” the letter submitted to Governor said.
“As you are aware that Rashtirya Janata Dal (RJD) was/is the single largest party in the existing Vidhan Sabha. Besides, we remain the single largest pre-poll election block together with Indian National Congress with one hundred and seven members. Hindustani Awam Morcha (HAM-S) has already pledged support to us. We also wish to put on record that apart from the existing strength, we are likely to be extended unconditional support by several MLAs including from CPI(ML), which could only be seen/tested on the floor of the house in the spirit of the Bommai judgement of 1994 as well as the decision of the Honorable Governor of Karnataka three days ago.” the letter further said.
