Kumar is expected to form a fresh government, armed with the support of the entire opposition, including the RJD and the Left parties. He also submitted a support letter of 160 MLAs to stake claims to form a new government, breaking the alliance with the BJP in the state.

Caretaker Chief Minister Kumar said, "All MPs and MLAs reached a consensus that we should leave the NDA. Soon after, I resigned as Bihar CM." "All the meetings with the MPs, MLAs and MLCs of both the houses were held today. Everyone's wish was that we should leave NDA. So as everyone wished, we accepted the same and submitted the resignation from the post of the Chief Minister in the NDA government," he added.

In July 2017, Kumar had left the Mahagathbandhan to join hands with the saffron party, and continued as chief minister.

In October-November 2020, the NDA government won assembly polls in the state.
