Nitish resigns as Bihar CM, says ‘it was getting difficult to work’

Patna: Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar said on Wednesday he had quit in the interest of the state after failing to resolve a crisis plaguing the ruling Grand Alliance.

“I have resigned for the sake of Bihar,” the Janata Dal-United (JD-U) leader told the media after meeting Governor Keshari Nath Tripathi who accepted his resignation.

He made it clear that it was becoming difficult to continue to head the coalition of his party, the RJD — whose Deputy Chief Minister Tejashwi Yadav is facing corruption charges – and the Congress.
