Patna: United Janata Dal leader Nitish Kumar announced his resignation from the post of Bihar Chief Minister and submitted his resignation letter to the Governor.
Nitish Kumar has announced that the United Janata Dal has also left the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance.
The BJP and United Janata Dal formed an alliance to contest the 2020 elections in Bihar. The BJP-led coalition won and Nitish Kumar became the Chief Minister.
But for the past few months, there has been a rift between BJP leaders and Nitish Kumar. Nitish Kumar is furious over the news that the BJP is planning to split the party with senior leader RCB Singh of the United Janata Dal. Due to this, he prepared to break his friendship with BJP.
