Since then, Kumar has met the Bihar Governor and resigned as the Chief Minister, met Rashtriya Janta Dal leaders, Rabri Devi and Tejashwi Yadav, and gone back to the Governor to stake a claim of forming the government. Other political parties in the state including Congress, Hindustani Awam Morcha, CPI, and CPI-ML have expressed unconditional support to JD(U).
This is not the first time that Nitish Kumar has walked out of his alliance with the BJP. He had walked out of the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) in 2013 as well and in 2015 joined hands with Lalu Prasad Yadav's Rashtriya Janta Dal (RJD) and the Congress for the Bihar assembly elections to form the Mahagathbandan, of which today looks like a repeat.
