Patna: The political crisis in Bihar arising out of the resignation of Nitish Kumar as chief minister following the severe drubbing that JD-U suffered in the Lok Sabha election remained unresolved with the party failing to elect its “new” leader.
All JD(U) MLAs insisted that Kumar should continue, but Kumar refused to do so and sought time till tomorrow. Many of the legislators even threatened to sit on dharna if he refused to withdraw his resignation, party spokesman Sanjay Singh told reporters on a day of fast-paced political developments.
A meeting of the JD(U) Legislature Party has been called again tomorrow, Singh said.
Though the timing of the meeting has not been decided, legislators have been told to be in the town, MLC Neeraj Kumar said.
