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.
