“The decision is in favour of the nation, the party and Nitishji. It was a difficult decision but is final and right," he said.

Yadav’s remarks came ahead of the JD (U) legislature meeting which is expected to take place on Monday at 4PM where the party will probably take a final call on choosing a new leader in the wake of Nitish Kumar’s resignation.

All JD (U) MLAs earlier insisted that Kumar should continue but he refused to do so and sought time till today.
Kumar said he would devote more time to the party remaining out of power. He also said that rival BJP was making mockery of his resignation by describing it as ‘drama’. But the party legislators refused to buy his argument.

Several legislators even threatened to sit on a dharna if he refused to withdraw his resignation, party spokesman Sanjay Singh told reporters.

Political temperature in Bihar rose amidst reports of efforts at realignment of old 'Janata Parivar' with Lalu Prasad and Nitish Kumar coming together to form a strong government in Bihar to keep communal forces away from power.
There were reports of Sharad Yadav and even Nitish Kumar talking to Lalu Prasad. But the RJD chief told reporters that these were ‘baseless and concocted’ and refused talking to either of them.
