“We are committed to form the first BJP government in state and win all the 40 Lok Sabha seats from Bihar,” said Chaudhary after his appointment.

“People of Bihar are fed up with Nitish Kumar and he has become a non-entity in Bihar’s politics. The way he has cheated the people of Bihar, voters will teach him a lesson,” said Chaudhary.

Samrat belongs to a family of politicians. His father, Shakuni Chaudhary has been an MLA and MP seven times and mother Parvati Devi had represented Tarpur assembly seat.

Before joining the BJP, he was with the RJD and the JD (U).

He left RJD in 2014 and joined JD(U).

He was made an MLC and then a minister after he joined the party. He was also a minister in 1999 during the RJD regime. In 2018, he joined BJP.

Reacting on the developments, JD(U) state president Umesh Kushwaha called it BJP’s internal matters.

“The equation is solidly behind Nitish Kumar,” he said.
