Here is what Nitish Kumar said after his resignation as CM
New Delhi: In what came as an end to the ongoing crisis in Bihar Grand Alliance, Chief Minister Nitish Kumar resigned from his post today. He handed over his resignation to Governor Keshari Nath Tripathi.
With this, the Grand Alliance in Bihar has collapsed. The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is likely to extend its support to the JD(U) for Nitish Kumar being able to form next government. However, the BJP has stopped short of announcing this, but it has appointed observers to take opinion of its legislators over what to do next. However, Bihar BJP leader Sushil Kumar Modi and JP Nadda after the parliamentary board meeting told reporters that the party is not in favour of mid-term poll in the state. This makes amply clear that the BJP will support Nitish Kumar’s party paving the way for formation of the new government.
After resigning from CM post, Nitish Kumar addressed media and said so many important things. Here’s what he said to the media after tendering his resignation to the Bihar Governor:
- I tried my level best to save the alliance, but it’s not possible to work in this environment.
2. I tried to find out solution and consulted all stake holders of the alliance to find a way out.
3. I took this decision in the interest of Bihar because I am committed to the people and development of the state.
4. When I supported demonetisation a lot of allegations were leveled against me.
5. A fter demonetisation, I had demanded action against benami property and now how can I compromise on the same
6. Gandhiji always said needs can be met on the earth, but greed can never be fulfilled.
7. Before resigning, I had informed Laluji and Congress Bihar incharge CP Joshi.
8. I tried to work it out..I didn’t ask for anybody’s resignation …just asked Tejashwi Yadav to explain charges of corruption.
9. That they are being implicated falsely came as an explanation before RJD workers not before the public was it explained any time
10. When asked on taking support from BJP, Nitish Kumar did not rule out taking BJP support for forming govt, saying “Whatever had to happen has happened. Now see what happens next.”
