Manjhi resigns as Bihar Chief Minister, from JD (U)
Friday February 20, 2015 12:04 PM, IANS

Bihar Chief Minister Jitan Ram Manjhi Friday said he has quit, adding he should have "resigned before" and has also resigned from Janata Dal (U).

Manjhi said that he did not get respect as chief minister.

"I should have quit before," said Manjhi soon after he met Governor Keshri Nath Tripathi here Friday.

"I have submitted my resignation letter to the governor," he added.

An official told IANS that Manjhi met the governor ahead of the trust vote he faced later in the day.

Manjhi said that legislators had received threats to their lives.

Manjhi has also resigned from Janata Dal (U), said party spokesperson K.C. Tyagi Friday.

"He (Manjhi) has resigned," Tyagi told IANS.

Tyagi said that since the Janata Dal-United (JD-U) has the majority in Bihar, the "governor will call Nitish Kumar by today evening or latest by tomorrow to prove his majority".
