Chief Minister of Bihar

1st Term (3 March 2000 – 10 March 2000)
On 3 March 2000, Nitish Kumar was appointed the Chief Minister of Bihar, but he resigned seven days later because failed to prove majority. RJD leader Lalu Prasad Yadav enjoyed the majority.
2nd Term (24 November 2005 – 24 November 2010)
In November 2005, he led the National Democratic Alliance to victory in the 2005 Bihar assembly elections bringing an end to the 15-year rule of the Lalu Prasad Yadav-led Rashtriya Janata Dal. He was sworn in as the Chief Minister of Bihar on 24 November 2005. Under his government, Bihar developed an electronic version of the Right to Information Act called Jankari scheme. In addition, he launched the E-shakti NREGS program, by which rural people can get employment information by telephone. He is credited with improving infrastructure, and reducing crime, widely felt to be serious problems in the state.
Under his governance Bihar has had a record number of criminal prosecutions through fast track courts. His government initiated a mandatory weekly meeting with all District Magistrates to monitor progress at the grassroot level. His government has generated employment in police services and teaching. Bihar recorded record construction work during his five year mandate, surpassing the national average.
Nitish Kumar government also initiated bicycle and meal programs – the government gave bicycles to girls who stayed in school – which saw Bihar getting huge number of girls into schools and fall in school drop out rates. Women and extremely backward castes were given 50% reservation in electorals for the first time ever in India. However, bicycle scheme of Nitish Government has been criticised by some people because of corruption involved in the scheme.
Health schemes were launched to improve village hospitals and the free medicine distribution system. Loan schemes for farmers were improved by involving national banks.
The state witnessed steep hike in GSDP growth, the second highest in the country. Bihar was recorded as the highest tax payer state in eastern India.
Dr. Abdul Kalam, former President of India and Nitish Kumar initiated the Nalanda International University project, headed by the Prime Minister of India.
3rd Term (26 November 2010 to present)
In 2010, Nitish Kumar's party swept back to power along with its allies Bharatiya Janata Party. On 26 November 2010, Nitish Kumar took oath as a Chief Minister of Bihar. This is his second consecutive term as Chief Minister of Bihar.In a keenly fought contest, Nitish Kumar led JDU-BJP combine won with four-fifth majority. NDA won 206 seats while RJD won 22 seats. No party there has won enough seats to represent the opposition in the state assembly, which requires at least 25 seats to become eligible to represent the main opposition party. For the first time electorates witnessed high turnout of women and young voters, while this was declared as the fairest Bihari election, with no bloodshed or poll violence.
Separation from National Democratic Alliance

The Janata Dal-United broke its ties with the Bharatiya Janata Party in Bihar in protest against the elevation of Narendra Modi, bringing to an end a 17-year-old alliance that had held firm through thick and thin in the national politics. JD-U President Sharad Yadav and Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar announced the break up of the coalition at a press conference on 16 June 2013, exactly a week after Narendra Modi was made the BJP's campaign committee chairman, considered just a step short of being made the prime ministerial candidate. Just after this split, Sharad Yadav relinquished his position as the NDA convenor.

Nitish Kumar's first session was good. A man with will power and good vision ,but in his 2nd sesson ,he played he entire role to provoke, promote and develop 'Afsarshahi' and monarchy. This was enough .This was perhaps the last 'keeel' in his political 'taboot'.

Where is Nitish Kumar? Is he with BJP? No. Is he with LJP? No. Is he with JDU? No. Is he with Congress? No ,no .Now answer appears, then he is only with himself. And we find ,there is no miracles in him to stand himself to catch more than 2-3 seats. Then where is Nitish Kumar ? Nitish is over, I think so.

Nitish Jee ! Aap muslim vote ke sabse zyada haqdar hain kiyonki aapne NAMO ke naam per BJP se apna 17 years ki dosti torh dee, lekin aik sawal hai aapse ? Aapki party me maujood Muslim leader kya moonh chor hain jo kabhi saamne nahi aate hain ya phir aap muslim leaders ko khud hi samne nahi rakhte hain ki kahin woh aapke saath independent muslim leader na ban jaye.

Kya kiya jae nitish ji aap ko aap ke cast wale hi dhoka De rahe hai .Ab agar Muslim vote aap ko dete hai to BJP jeet jayega kinyuke aap ke pas aap ke cast ka vote nahi hai. Isliye Muslim nahi chahta ke BJP jite. Ab Muslim ko ek hi rasta bacha hai agar BJP ko harana hai to RJD-Congress ko vote De denge. Ham sab jante hai ke is faisle se Bihar ko nuksan hoga .magar or Koi rasta nahi hai BJP ko harane ka.
