Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar took a significant step on Sunday morning by submitting his resignation to Governor Rajendra V Arlekar. Officials confirmed that the governor accepted Kumar's resignation and requested him to serve as the caretaker CM until the formation of a new government. Kumar, accompanied by senior JD(U) minister Bijendra Yadav, visited the Raj Bhavan to complete the formalities.
The decision to resign followed a meeting chaired by Kumar with party MLAs at his official residence. Speculations suggest that a new government, potentially backed by the BJP, could be established by the evening, according to reliable sources. The political landscape in Bihar is undergoing changes, and Kumar's resignation marks a pivotal moment as the state anticipates the formation of a fresh administration.
