Nitish Kumar

Nitish Kumar is the Chief Minister of Bihar. The Janata Dal (United) leader has held this office from 2000-2005 and 2005-2014. In the run up to the Bihar assembly elections, Nitish Kumar forged an alliance with Congress and Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD), in a bid to outweigh BJP in the state elections. The alliance registered a massive win and Kumar became the Chief Minister for the third consecutive time. Nitish Kumar withdrew support from BJP in 2013, calling end to the alliance of 17 years. Fulfilling his poll promise of banning liquor, the Nitish administration enforced an immediate crackdown on liquor in the state. The decision has earned him criticism from Opposition leaders, economists, experts and political commentators alike.
