Nitish Kumar will sworn-in as Bihar Chief Minister on February 22.

“Governor has invited me to form Government” said Nitish Kumar after meeting Governor Keshari Nath Tripathi here today.

Before this, in a surprising move, Jitan Ram Manjhi submitted his resignation to Governor Keshari Nath Tripathi hours before trust vote.

Manjhi has submitted his resignation, Principal Secretary to Governor Brajesh Mehrotra told PTI.

Asked about the content, Mehrotra said it was an one-line statement.

Manjhi sprang a surprise by making an unscheduled visit to Raj Bhawan around 10 AM. He returned to his One Anne Marg residence after a brief 15-minute meeting with the Governor.
