Nitish Kumar resigns as Bihar CM: Within minutes of Nitish Kumar announcing his resignation as Chief Minister of Bihar, RJD supremo Lalu Yadav addressed the media and hit out at his former alliance partner. Lalu blamed Nitish for the end of the Mahagathbandhan. Lalu accused Nitish Kumar of murder, and said we knew about it but never highlighted it. “Nitish Kumar knew that he is accused of section 302, one of India’s CM is main accused in murder and arms case,” said Lalu, as per ANI. Lalu thereafter said that “Nitish had said he would rather perish than join hands with the BJP.”  He then repeated some statements that he had made earlier in the afternoon before Nitish had quit. He said, “Nitish did not ask for Tejasvi’s resignation. He had asked for an explanation over graft charges. JDU isn’t CBI or some other probe agency. I don’t need to give explanations to JD(U) leaders.” Lalu also revealed that the issue of Tejashwi was discussed with Nitish yesterday night.  He said, “It was conveyed to him that corruption charges were baseless.”

In his long statement, Lalu also said, The corruption case is fraud and the charges against RJD are totally baseless.” Lalu added that the taint on Nitish is strong. He said, “A serious case dating back to 2009 against Nitish is pending too. He had accepted that he is facing a case in affidavit too.” He then asked, “How did Nitish Kumar then get to sit on the chief minister’s chair?”

The RJD supremo also claimed Nitish of being together with Bharatiya Janata Party and Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh. In his press conference post Nitish Kumar quit as CM, Lalu asked: “what was the setting that as soon as Nitish resigned, PM Modi tweeted and congratulated him for it?” Following this, he said that there is a grand alliance in Bihar. Now, when the state CM has resigned, it is needed to call a meeting of the representatives of all three parties to choose a new leader for the state, said Lalu as per ANI.
