Renu Devi Becomes Bihar’s First Woman Deputy Chief Minister

Sixty-two-years-old Renu Devi, from an extremely backward Noniya community, took oath as one of the Bihar’s two Deputy Chief Ministers along with Tarkishore Prasad on November 16.

Devi is a four-time MLA from Bettiah, a former minister in Nitish Kumar’s Cabinet and a mother of two.

She was formerly the vice president of the party and was on Sunday chosen as the deputy leader of the BJP legislature in Bihar.

She was earlier a part of Durga Vahini, the women’s wing of Vishwa Hindu Parishad.

“Barely six years after the marriage in 1973, my husband passed away. It was sheer courage, conviction and determination bestowed by Almighty, support by the family and love and respect given by BJP that life has come full circle for me,” said Devi.

“It’s a big responsibility and I extremely thankful to my party leaders for giving me this opportunity,” she added.
