Patna, June 16 (IANS) The BJP declared Sunday that it was ready to quit the Nitish Kumar ministry in Bihar and sit in the opposition benches.

Thakur said all BJP ministers were meeting at Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Kumar Modi's residence here.

"At this meeting a final decision will be taken to resign before or after the JD-U announces the end of the alliance," he said.
