Nitish Kumar said, "It's not possible to work in this environment, I tried. Tried to find out a solution" outside the Raj Bhavan after submitting his resignation to the governor.

The dispute in 'mahagathbandhan' started after the Central Bureau of Investigation filed a corruption case against the RJD leader and his family and raided their residences. The case also included Deputy CM Tejashwi’s name, after which demands of his resignation surfaced.

The Bihar Chief Minister had asked Deputy CM Tejashwi to come clean to the public 'fact-wise' on the allegations against him. However, RJD's clarifications weren't good enough said a senior JD(U) leader.

Nitish also mentioned the incident in his address outside Raj Bhavan saying that he only demanded a clarification of on the allegations.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi also tweeted to congratulate the Bihar Chief Minister saying, "Congratulations to Nitish Kumar for joining the fight against corruption. 125 crore people of the country are supporting and welcoming your move."

 He also tweeted, "The country in this time need to unite in the fight against corruption by overcoming the political differences for a bright future of the country and especially Bihar."
