 PATNA: The Bihar assembly will have a day-long special session from 11am on Friday to facilitate the new JD(U)-NDA government of Nitish Kumar to seek trust vote, Speaker Vijay Kumar Chaudhary said on Thursday.

“The assembly secretariat has informed the house members to participate in the one-day special session which will begin at 11am tomorrow. The members have been informed by telephone, SMS and letters,” Chaudhary told reporters.

“There is only one agenda for tomorrow’s special sitting – that is the trust vote of the new government,” he said.
