Bihar Education Minister Mewalal resigns following pressure from opposition

Bihar Education Minister Mewalal has resigned from his post. The newly inducted minister had serious charges of corruption leveled against him. The Nitish Kumar government was under tremendous pressure for appointing him as the Education Minister. Opposition leader Tejashwi Yadav also tweeted a day ago in connection with the same and also questioned Nitish Kumar's cabinet, which is deprived of Muslim leaders.

Mewalal was accused of serious scams in the education sector and his taking over the portfolio of the same sector raised several questions. The minister in the past has been sacked, after being found guilty and there has been an official complaint against him as well. All of this was brought out in the public domain and several political parties targeted Nitish Kumar over the same.
