Patna: BJP on Wednesday hinted at supporting Jiten Ram Manjhi, the Chief Minister of Bihar, who was expelled from the party after he refused to step down as the Bihar CM and make way for Nitish Kumar.

Manjhi is set to go for the trust vote at the floor of Bihar Assembly on 20 February. Senor BJP leader Sushil kumar Modi said that BJP MLAs unanimously expressed their views that the party should support Jitan Ram Manjhi during the trust vote to give a strong reply to a mahadalit.

He also added that the BJP MlAs felt that is would be a revenge to the insult of a Mahadalit by Kumar.
