Lalu on Tejashwi Yadav's resignation; says will not resign

Lalu on Tejashwi Yadav's resignation; says will not resign

He added, "The BJP was always scared of my father Lalu Yadav but now I know that they are also nervous to see my growth as a political leader".

He was asked to comment on Bihar BJP President Nithyanand Rai's reported remarks that the BJP would consider providing outside support to the JD-U if it snaps ties with Lalu Prasad's RJD.

The CBI raided the residences of Lalu Prasad's family in connection with an alleged case of corruption in giving tenders of two hotels to a private company when he was Railway Minister. Nitish Kumar, though he continued to maintain studied silence on the issue, was reportedly anguished over the RJD's attitude even as JD (U)'s unofficial four-day ultimatum to Tejaswi to resign expired Saturday.

The sources stressed that Mr. Kumar, by backing the BJP-led NDA's presidential nominee, Ram Nath Kovind, had made a "false political step" as the decision had annoyed Muslims and Dalits in the State.

After JD (U) pressurised Tejashwi Yadav to resign from his post of deputy chief minister of Bihar, Congress' president, Sonia Gandhi, intervened in order to save the great alliance of Bihar.

"All tangible and intangible assets of Lalu Yadav and his family are in public domain. Otherwise, the people would show them the door". He further said that a mere FIR against someone is not a good enough reason for resignation. Although Prasad nearly keeps his MY (Muslim-Yadav) equation intact, Kumar has been continuously working to strengthen his party's support base among the MBC (most backward castes) and women voters.




Tyagi, however, said Kumar had not fixed any time-frame for Tejaswi to come clean.

Meanwhile, senior JD (U) leader Shyam Rajak, once a close confidante of Lalu's, said, "Laluji bujurgiyat me anap shanap bol rahe hain..."

JD (U) leader Pavan Varma told PTI in Kolkata that Tejaswi and the other RJD leaders should come out with a "substantive rejoinder" for the sake of the coalition's image.

Assuming that it could make news, Nitish took a dig at media and said it was more interested in spicy news than reporting about Bihar's positive stories. Of the 1.13 lakh students who have registered themselves for availing various skill development training across the state since its launch on December 15, 2016, around 42,000 youths have availed training, the CM said.

Lalu Prasad has been convicted and sentenced to five-year imprisonment in one of the five cases for which he is being tried in the fodder scam. In the 243-seat Bihar Assembly, the RJD has 80 seats, the JD (U) 71 and the Congress 27.
