Tejashwi Yadav skips government event attended by CM Nitish Kumar
NEW DELHI: The crisis has deepened into the big dominant alliance in Bihar Saturday with Deputy Chief Minister Yadav Tejashwi to skip an official role with Prime Minister Nitish Kumar in Patna.
Tejashwi, who is the youngest son of RJD Lalu Prasad Yadav, attends a program marking the first anniversary of ‘Vishwa Yuva Kaushal divas at Gyan Bhawan Patna. He was classified as a distinguished guest in a promotional brochure for the event.
According to authorities, the name of the plate Tejashwi Yadav was arranged earlier with the Nitish Kumar on a table at the event, but was covered first with a cloth and then rushed before the program officially begins.
Accused of corruption in the case of hotel land, Tejashwi has faced pressure to protect himself from allegations that he and his party have vehemently vehemently criticized him. There has also been a growing outcry from his resignation to the office of Minister Nitish Kumar.
After ICC filed a lawsuit against Yadav Tejashwi July 5, JD (T) has stepped up pressure on chief RJD, Lalu Prasad and members of his family to disclose the origin of “massive ownership” that would have him possessed.
Without removing names, JD (T) spokesman Neeraj Kumar addressed the opposition BJP allegations that members of the Lalu family had acquired Benami properties across the country, claiming it had to be explained.
A challenge, Tejashwi, said he had no intention of resigning and that the charges against him were a conspiracy described by the BJP.
To save his son, the chief RJD, Lalu Prasad, who was also investigated as part of a series of scams, has highlighted that Tejashwi was impeccable. He also reported reports of emerging faults in the great Bihar alliance.
“Tejashwi is not going to resign. There is no question of his resignation … Mahagathbandhan (Great Alliance for Management) is intact in Bihar,” Lalu said Friday after a party meeting.
Meanwhile, JD (T) leaders want the party leader, Nitish Kumar, to make the final decision on Tejashwi’s political fate over a recalcitrant RJD, who said the youngest son Yadav will not give up all costs.
“Nitish Kumar’s position on corruption is well-known. It will never endanger,” said JD (T) spokesman KC Tyagi.
