Citing irreconcilable differences with the Lalu Prasad-led RJD over corruption charges against his son Tejashwi, Kumar announced his resignation after meeting Governor Keshari Nath Tripathi, hours after the RJD supremo rejected outright the demand for his sons ouster.

Kumars resignation capped days of stand-off between his party the Janata Dal-United and the RJD with the former insisting that Tejashwi defend himself against the allegations.
