Speaking to media for the first time since resigning from his post, Nitish Kumar on Thursday said that the decision of walking out of the grand alliance was in the interest of Bihar’s people. He also added that Bihar’s voters will get the most benefit of his decision.
Late yesterday evening, Nitish Kumar had submitted his resignation to the governor of Bihar citing the growing influence of RJD and Tejashwi Yadav in the government. After his resignation, things moved pretty fast and within a few hours, BJP and JDU reached a mutual agreement to form a government in Bihar. Today morning, the series of dramatic events ended with Nitish Kumar swearing in as the chief minister of Bihar once again, his 6th term.
Speaking on the new formation, Nitish Kumar added that the new government will work for the voters and that the development will not have roadblocks now. Yesterday, Nitish Kumar had indirectly blamed RJD for corruption saying that the family of Lalu Yadav is trying to run the politics of the state and that every member of the family has been named in the corruption charges.
