I will continue to be Bihar CM, says Manjhi

Jitan Ram Manjhi Monday said he will continue to be chief minister of Bihar.



Patna: Jitan Ram Manjhi Monday said he will continue to be chief minister of Bihar.

On being told by the media at his weekly `janata durbar` that some Janata Dal-United leaders wanted to oust him, Manjhi said he will continue to be the chief minister "for now".

He said former chief minister and senior JD-U leader Nitish Kumar was the best candidate but the next chief minister should be a Dalit.

"Nitish Kumar is the best option... but the next chief minister should be a Dalit," Manjhi said in Hindi.

He said Dalits in Bihar have become united after he became chief minister.

"Dalits are now supporting the JD-U and it would help the party in the next assembly polls," he said.
