Nitish handed over his resignation to Governor Keshari Nath Tripathi and confirmed it saying ” The Governor has accepted my resignation. I did everything a chief of a party in the alliance should do. I myself have given away the post. Now, you will have to wait and see what happens next. what I asked Lalu Yadav and Tejashwi Yadav was to prove false the CBI allegations of 2006 case slapped against them. It had become difficult for me to work in this environment.”
