As Nitish Kumar quits as CM; PM invites him to BJP

Nitish Kumar finally quits after Lalu’s statement for Tejaswi Yadav!

Nitish Kumar has resigned as Chief Minister of Bihar. After RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav insisted again for the nth time that Nitish had not sought the resignation of deputy chief minister Tejashwi Yadav, Lalu’s son, the Bihar Chief Minister met the Governor and put down his papers.

Soon after Nitish’s decision to quit was announced, Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s personal twitter handle@narendramodi tweeted in support of the Bihar Chief Minister’s decision.

Modi graciously congratulated Nitish Kumar and hinted his invite!

Modi, in his tweet, said, “I congratulate Nitish Kumar on his joining the fight against corruption. 100 million citizens of the country welcome and support honesty.”

This was followed by another tweet: “The demand of the country and of the current time is that for the sake of the nation’s, and especially Bihar’s bright future, we must join together as one and rise up beyond political considerations and fight against corruption.”

Tejaswi Yadav along with Lalu Prasad Yadav stole the wealth and never responded-

Tejashwi and his father Lalu Prasad were named by the CBI in corruption cases on July 7, since when it has been said that the deputy chief minister would be expected to resign. Lalu, however, kept insisting that his son would not resign and that all was well in the Maha Gathbandhan (Grand Alliance) that is ruling Bihar.

Earlier in the day, Lalu made a pointed remark hinting at Kumar’s dependence on him and the RJD, saying “Why would I destabilise him? I made him Chief Minister.”After days of speculation in the media about what options he had as he did not like his ‘Mr Clean’ image being dragged through the mud because of his association with the “corrupt” Lalu and RJD, Nitish finally stepped down.
