Bihar Assembly adjourned sine die after Manjhi's Resignation

Patna, Feb 20: The political crisis in Bihar took another turn after the resignation of Jitan Ram Manjhi as the chief minister. The Speaker Uday Narain Choudhary adjourned the Assembly sine die.

The final decision would be taken by Governor KN Tripathy, who may invite senior JDU leader Nitish Kumar to form the next government or he may accept Manjhi's recommendation to dissolve the Assembly.

The sudden resignation of Manjhi hours before the trust vote in the House raised many questions. However, Manjhi made it clear that he did not back out but he was forced to resign as he and his MLAs were getting threatening calls for the floor test.

Nitish might be blaming BJP for this political crisis in the state, but his game plan was exposed indeed. Manjhi, who was confident enough to prove the majority on the floor, tendered his resignation ahead of the trust vote.

Manjhi belongs to Mahadalit, the most backward caste. He might have support of dalits MLAs, but he surrendered on the test day.
