According to reports, Nitish Kumar will stake claim to form new government in the state with the support of Lalu Prasad Yadav’s RJD.

He also confirmed that he has reigned as Bihar Chief Minister while talking to media.

JDU will get 0 seats

Soon after his resignation, LJP leader Chirag Paswan said, ‘Today credibility of Nitish Kumar is zero. We want President rule to be imposed in Bihar & the state should go for a fresh mandate. Do you (Nitish Kumar )have any ideology or not? In next polls, JDU will get 0 seats.’
