A no-confidence motion against the Speaker of the Bihar Assembly, Awadh Bihari Choudhary, was moved and successfully passed on Monday (February 12). BJP MLA Nandkishore Yadav initiated the motion to remove the Speaker from his position.

The motion unfolded as Awadh Bihari Chaudhary resisted stepping down from his role even after his party lost power two weeks ago. The political landscape in Bihar shifted when Chief Minister Nitish Kumar terminated the alliance with the 'Mahagathbandhan' and returned to the BJP-led coalition.
