After facing a huge defeat in Lok Sabha Election and being asked from opponents parties of Bihar, Today Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar has resigned. His Janata Dal United won just two of Bihar’s 40 seats.
Before national election, last year only he had snapped ties with 17-year-old ally BJP last year over Narendra Modi’s elevation, a move that many believed had backfired spectacularly.
As BJP won a landslide victory with 282 seats in the 543 member Parliament and defeated all self proclaimed secular parties, Nitish’s JD(U) has also been wiped out.
Yesterday, on fb he written that he respect the mandate of the people. After his party’s crushing defeat, BJP leader Sushil Kumar Modi, and his former deputy, asked Nitish Kumar to give resign on moral grounds. JD(U) was already in a minority in the Bihar assembly and there was speculation the dissent within his party will grow, with support from the opposition.
This coming election may help BJP and RJD both to grow but people of Bihar will certainly give mandate to development and i think fight will be in between RJD and JD(U).
