Nitish Kumar on Tuesday met Governor Phagu Chauhan and tendered his resignation as chief minister of the NDA government in Bihar.
He said the decision to sever ties with the NDA was taken by his party, the JD(U).
Kumar is expected to form a fresh government, armed with the support of the entire opposition, including the RJD and the Left parties.
