People voted for us in his name. He then accepted the post of CM at the behest of JDU, BJP and VIP leaders.

He had also made it clear to the BJP leadership that he does not want to become the Chief Minister. A Chief Minister was made by BJP. However, the BJP leadership did not agree to this and I was pressurized to become the Chief Minister.
Let us tell you that during the National Executive meeting, Nitish Kumar announced the resignation of the post of JDU’s national president, making the party’s Rajya Sabha MP RCP Singh the new national president of JDU. The Chief Minister and the outgoing National President of the party, Nitish Kumar, had presented a proposal to make RCP Singh as the President himself in the meeting of the National Executive. This was unanimously agreed upon by the Executive and then the National Council also approved it.
