“Nitish Kumar should resign soon on moral grounds after the major debacle of his party in the polls,” LJP parliamentary board chairman Chirag Paswan told media persons here.
Actor-turned-politician Chirag is son of LJP chief Ram Vilas Paswan.
“It is clear Nitish Kumar has lost the confidence of the people,” Chirag, who won from Jamui, said.
Later, addressing a press conference here, Ram Vilas Paswan reiterated that the Nitish Kumar government would fall within two to three months and mid-term assembly polls would be held in October-November this year.
“Nitish Kumar government will not last long,” he said.
Ram Vilas Paswan said that thanks to the Modi wave, people of Bihar got rid of two leaders — Nitish Kumar and RJD chief Lalu Prasad.
He said LJP is not worried about cabinet berths in BJP-led NDA government of Narendra Modi.
BJP won 22 seats, LJP six and another ally RLSP three of the 40 parliamentary seats from Bihar.
The ruling JD-U won two seats, RJD four, Congress two and NCP one.
