Patna: Nitish Kumar will take part in the swearing in ceremony as the CM of Bihar on Sunday. Being the Chief Minister of Bihar all over again, described his decision to quit office last year as ‘a mistake’, on Friday
“With folded hands, I apologise to the people of Bihar. Never again will I take such a step. I am ready to lead from the front,” he said, after his rival Jitan Ram Manjhi quit as Chief Minister, hours before a trust vote in which the BJP had pledged to back him. Kumar’s public contrition echoes the apology issued by Arvind Kejriwal when he was campaigning for the Delhi election. Kejriwal had “begged for the people’s forgiveness” for quitting as Chief Minister of the capital 49 days into his term. The remorse, expressed infrequently, had the desired effect. Kejriwal and his Aam Aadmi Party or AAP won a record result, which has installed them in government once again.
