Nitish Kumar

Nitish Kumar resigned from his post of Chief Minister of Bihar on July 26, 2017. Kumar cited irreconcilable differences with ally RJD on the issue of corruption charges against his deputy Tejashwi Yadav. This is the second time that Nitish Kumar has resigned from his post as the Chief Minister of the state. His first resignation came in 2014 after his party JD(U) suffered a drubbing in the general elections. In the run up to the Bihar assembly elections, Nitish Kumar had forged an alliance with Congress and Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD), in a bid to outweigh BJP in the state elections. The alliance had registered a massive win and Kumar became the Chief Minister for the third consecutive time. Meanwhile, during his tenure, Nitish Kumar fulfilled his poll promise of banning liquor. The decision has earned him criticism from Opposition leaders, economists, experts and political commentators alike.
