Sushil modi asks Bihar CM to resign before he gets sacked

Patna: Claiming that Bihar Chief Minister Jitan Ram Manjhi would be removed from office in the event of merger of the JD(U) and RJD, senior BJP leader Sushil Kumar Modi on Tuesday asked him to resign on his own and recommend fresh elections in the state to pre-empt the move.

“I suspect that Manjhi will be removed from the Chief Minister’s post post-merger of the JD(U) and RJD after Makar Sankranti... I would advise him to resign on his own and recommend fresh elections,” he told reporters here.  

He said that Bihar would be pushed into extended period of political instability after the proposed merger of the two erstwhile rivals. On the CM reportedly warming upto the BJP by offering to work in tandem with Prime Minister for development of Bihar, he said such a proposal had not been officially communicated, but if an offer was indeed made, the BJP Parliamentary board might consider it.
