Nitish Kumar asks Governor to dissmiss BJP ministers
Sunday June 16, 2013 3:17 PM, Agencies

Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar met Governor DY Patil Sunday in the afternoon and asked for the BJP's 11 ministers to be dismissed from his cabinet, according to a report by NDTV.

With this, the 17-year old alliance between JD-U and BJP formally comes to an end.

Rift had started between the two alliance partners ever since Narendra Modi - the Chief Minister of Gujarat, who is accused of killing Muslims in the 2002 riot, was made chairman of the BJP's poll committee.

Nitish Kumar earlier said that a special session of the assembly will be called Wednesday so that he can prove his majority.

Officials said the chief minister had sought time to meet the governor and had been invited to Raj Bhavan at 2 p.m.

Earlier today, the JDU finalized a resolution that will explain its reasons for ending the 17-year-alliance. Sources say the party will officially attribute its decision to Narendra Modi, BJP leader and Gujarat Chief Minister. Though Modi will not be named, the JD(U) will castigate his party for placing him in charge of its national campaign.

The JD-U has 118 seats in the 243-member assembly, only four short of majority, while the BJP has 91 members. There are six independents in the assembly while the Congress has four members.
