Immediately after Kumar announced his resignation, Modi tweeted: "Congratulations! Mr Nitish Kumar for joining the fight against corruption."

"1.25 crore people are welcoming and supporting his honesty," he said in a series of tweets.

"For the bright future of the country, and especially Bihar, it is the need of the hour to rise above political differences and join the fight against corruption," Modi said.

Kumar on Wednesday resigned as chief minister, citing differences with ally RJD over corruption charges against Deputy chief minister Tejashwi Yadav, son of Lalu Prasad.
