“The Nitish Kumar government will fall on its own in the next 2-3 months and the people will have to give a fresh mandate for a good state government by October-November this year,” LJP president Ramvilas Paswan told reporters here. Another BJP ally Rashtriya Lok Samata Party (RLSP) demanded that Kumar resign following the rout in the Lok Sabha elections in the state.
“Nitish Kumar should resign and seek a fresh mandate,” RLSP President Upendra Kushwaha, a friend-turned-foe of Kumar who won from Karakat told reporters. His party, which contested three seats in Bihar in alliance with BJP, rode on Modi wave to win all of them.
