    HIGHLIGHTS
    1. Nitish Kumar spent over an hour discussing Tejashwi Yadav with lawmakers
    2. Defiant Lalu Yadav had ruled out son Tejashwi's resignation
    3. Nitish Kumar's resignation ends 2-year Bihar coalition

    Nitish Kumar has quit as Chief Minister of Bihar, ending the two-year-long political experiment that was branded as a game-changing Maha-gathbandhan or Grand Alliance which included his party, Lalu Yadav and the Congress. This evening, Mr Kumar met with Bihar Governor Keshari Nath Tripathi to deliver his resignation.

    His stunning move came after Lalu Yadav reiterated earlier today that his son, Tejashwi, would not quit as No 2 in the government despite being caught in a corruption scandal.

    Nitish Kumar then met with law-makers from his party, the Janata Dal United or JDU, and told them that he would return from the Governor's home to inform them of what lies ahead. A new political arrangement, most likely. The opposition BJP had said weeks ago that it is willing to lend external support to keep Nitish Kumar in office without participating in his government.

    Through the day, events pointed to a climax of the political drama that has raged in Bihar for weeks. The Governor reportedly changed his travel plans to stay back for the meeting requested by the Chief Minister. Lalu Yadav, due to fly to Ranchi for a court appearance tomorrow, decided to drive there instead of flying, which allowed him to remain in Patna for a few extra hours at a crucial time.

    On July 7, Lalu and Tejashwi Yadav were named in a corruption case by the CBI which searched their Patna home. The Yadavs have attributed the case to a get-even attempt by Prime Minister Narendra Modi who they allege is "scared" of their concerted opposition to him. Nitish Kumar said the defense didn't wash, stressed that his "zero-tolerance to corruption" policy is unwavering, and amply hinted that Tejashwi Yadav should rise to the occasion by opting out of the government.


    Today, Lalu Yadav's party met and repeated that not only will Tejashwi Yadav remain in office, but that the Chief Minister's suggestion of a public and detailed defense has not been accepted.

    Statements from both sides today indicated the confrontation was past the point of rescue.

    "I have known Nitish for 40 years, he is no saint," said Shivanand Tiwari, a senior member of Lalu Yadav's party. "We can't compromise on Nitish's clean image," said KC Tyagi, a senior leader from the Chief Minister's party.

    The Congress' top bosses, Sonia and Rahul Gandhi, have attempted mediation with both Nitish Kumar and Lalu Yadav, but were unable to broker a compromise.

    The sudden death of the Bihar alliance will considerably wind the attempt of the opposition to build an 18-party front that hopes to prevent Prime Minister Narendra Modi from winning a second term in 2019. The league was fashioned on the Bihar alliance which saw former rivals Nitish Kumar and Lalu Yadav quitting their differences in 2015 and co-signing with the Congress to ensure that their collective support groups - a range of castes - became the wall that PM Modi ran into as he led the BJP's campaign in Bihar.


    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    stage set for Maha Gat Bandhan to collapse? for BJP to sneak in to Bihar? Game of thrones continuing here! ( off beat: likening Sonia to cersei lannister :p )

    This is that end of SP, BSP, RJD and Mamta clans from Indian Politics. Even if Bihar goes to polls, BJP will be in government.

    Now Lalu attacks Nitish and blames him of compromising with the central govt. He came in the press meet today with some documents about Nitish Kumar's alleged involvement in a murder case and charges against him as per the arms act.

    Bihar mahagathbandhan is more or less off.

    Most probably.

    Though I wish for more drama. Like Lalu poaching 6 MLAs from JD(U) and forming a government with help of other thali ke baingans, and that government falling after few months because someone goes to jail.

    Lalu clan has looted and destroyed Bihar for the last 20 years and the shameless creatures still have the audacity to come out and say "jo ukhadna hai ukhad lo hum to yahi rahenge".

    Its good that we are saved from all the drama. Why should people of Bihar suffer because of one or two families.
    Even thought they voted for Lalu and they probably deserve this but without the development of Bihar India cannot progress.
