After Deciding Not To Step Down As Deputy CM, Tejashwi Yadav Upsets People With His FB Post

After Deciding Not To Step Down As Deputy CM, Tejashwi Yadav Upsets People With His FB Post

Prime Minister Modi and BJP President Amit Shah have hatched a political conspiracy against me said Bihar Deputy Chief Minister Tejaswi Prasad Yadav.

It's been four days since JD (U) gave an ultimatum to Tejashwi Yadav to come clean on the corruption charges and "so far he has just given political statements in his defence", Niraj Kumar said. Nitish Kumar must resign as he is not working according to the mandate that he got and pave way for elections.

In Delhi, JD (U) spokesperson KC Tyagi said chief minister Nitish Kumar would never compromise on the issue of corruption.

There is speculation that Lalu may ask his son to resign and direct all the RJD Ministers to put in their papers while supporting the alliance Government from outside.

With Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief Lalu Prasad Yadav categorically rejecting demands for his younger son and Bihar deputy chief minister Tejashwi Yadav's resignation, an embattled chief minister Nitish Kumar on Saturday convened a crucial meeting of Janata Dal (U) legislators on Sunday to decide his next step. It is a stand that the senior Yadav had taken back in the 1990s when there was a chorus of demands for his resignation as chief minister. Bharti, RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav's daughter, had appeared before the central probe agency on Tuesday and was grilled for about eight hours. Nitish switched places with the help of JD (U) minister Rajiv Ranjan Singh who was sitting on his right side.

2 ways you can help the family of slain Abbie Smith
Abbiegail "Abbie" Smith, 11, was found dead on July 13, 2017, a day after she was reported missing in New Jersey, officials say. Smith's mother and brothers gasped in horror Friday when authorities revealed in court she'd been viciously stabbed.

Yadav, who holds charge of Road Construction, Building Construction and Backward and Extremely Backward Castes Welfare, said "We'll go to the people of Bihar and tell them everything".

The State Congress chief called on the two Bihar stalwarts after AICC president Sonia Gandhi spoke to Nitish Kumar two days ago and reportedly persuaded him to find way out to end the stand-off. "RJD ki or se gatbandhan mein koi aaanch nahi aayega (There will not any problem to the Grand Alliance from the RJD)", he said.

"They (RJD) must come out with a rebuttal as part of the coalition "dharma", so that the Mahagathbandhan's (Grand Alliance) image in terms of public probity is not damaged", he said.

Speaking to ANI, Prasad said, "I don't have anything to say on this issue". "It is speculative question, to which we have no reply at present", an AICC member said.
