Patna, Aug 5, 2017: In a major setback after losing power in Bihar government, the legislative council has rejected Rashtriya Janata Dal’s (RJD) request to appoint former chief minister Rabri Devi as the Leader of Opposition in the upper house by saying that the party did not have the required number of MLCs needed for the post.

Deputy Chairman of Bihar State Legislative Council Harun Rashid said “A strength of 9 MLCs is required for the post of leader of opposition in the upper house but RJD at present has only 7 MLCs. Hence their application was not in conformity with the rules.”

“A letter citing existing rules has been sent to RJD Bihar President Ramchandra Purbe who had sent a request for appointing Rabri Devi as leader of opposition in the state’s Upper House,” Rashid said.

Rabri met Rasheed to plead her case, reportedly asking why she was being denied the position if Ghulam Gous was made Leader of Opposition from the RJD after 2005 Assembly polls. She was told that the RJD had at that time the required nine seats to get the position.
