Claiming that there is no rift within the Bihar mahagathbandhan, RJD supremo Lalu Prasad Yadav on Wednesday said there is no question of his son Tejashwi Yadav stepping down as deputy chief minister.
“Tejashwi Yadav will not resign, Nitish Kumar didn’t ask for his resignation,” said Lalu Prasad addressing the media, after chairing a meeting of RJD MLAs.
He maintained the fact that there is no bitterness between him and chief minister, Nitish Kumar. “No bitterness between me and Nitish. Spoke to him yesterday. Media trying to crack our alliance,” he stated.
The JD(U) is scheduled to meet at 5 pm on Wednesday and will possibly take a call on Tejashwi’s future. He is facing charges of corruption along with his family members. Sources reported that the Grand Alliance can only be saved by Tejashwi’s resignation.
