Sources said the Congress will have "active participation" in the government formed by the RJD-led Grand Alliance and the JD(U) (JDU). 

On Tuesday, a day of fast-paced political developments, Nitish Kumar met Bihar Governor Fagu Chauhan twice.

First to submit his resignation as the Chief Minister of NDA and then after being elected leader of the Grand Alliance, staked claim to form the government with the state. 

Kumar said he submitted a list of 164 MLAs to the governor, who will decide when the oath can be taken.

Earlier in the day, the Congress had said it would support any non-BJP government in Bihar to help consolidate secular forces.

Congress has 19 MLAs in Bihar Assembly.
