Will Nitish Kumar Reconsider Resignation? Decision Likely Tomorrow | NDTV.com

18 May

A day after Nitish Kumar resigned as chief minister of Bihar, his party, the Janata Dal (United), failed to decide on a new leader, in a meeting held in Patna today.

The meeting ended this evening after party leaders created a ruckus as they unanimously chose Nitish Kumar as their leader, but he refused to withdraw his resignation. (Nitish Kumar Resigns a Day After Poll Defeat)

Mr Kumar has placated his MLAs for now by telling them he needs another day to think about what they have told him.

“We were adamant there would be no other choice. Nitish ji said he needs another day so we have asked him to hold another meeting tomorrow,” said JD(U) leader Nitish Mishra.

Earlier today, JD(U) chief Sharad Yadav had said that Mr Kumar’s resignation is final and he will not go back on the move. Mr Yadav however refused to comment on the speculation about a possible alliance between the JD(U) and Lalu Yadav’s RJD.
