Patna: Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar
on Sunday rejected RJD and LJP`s demand for his resignation,
saying there was no summon against him in a murder case.

"Much hue and cry is being made by Lalu Prasad and Ram
Vilas Paswan in a false and fabricated case... No court has
summoned me in any case," Kumar, on a campaign trail to
mobilise votes for NDA nominees for by-elections to 18
Assembly seats in Bihar, said.

"The opposition wants me to serve power to them on a
platter... It is impossible for me to oblige them as I hold the
post of Chief Minister because of the mandate and people`s
faith in me.

"Let them demand my resignation. There is no question of
doing so as long as I enjoy people`s blessings and mandate."

Kumar said the court had already exonerated him of all
charges in the case.
