"This situation cannot continue. Ministers are meant to work. Such a situation is not acceptable," he told the media, adding that he has called for a special session of the assembly Wednesday to prove his majority.
Bharatiya Janata Party ministers stopped attending office and returned their official vehicles as it became clear that the Janata Dal-United and BJP were set to part ways after being together for 17 years.
