BJP on Saturday said that Bihar chief minister, Nitish Kumar is wasting his time in meeting Congress vice-president, Rahul Gandhi in wake of asking RJD’s Deputy chief minister, Tejaswi Yadav to resign.
“Nitish Kumar is wasting time meeting Rahul Gandhi for reportedly asking Tejaswi Yadav to tender resignation,” said senior BJP leader, Sushil Kumar Modi.
“Rahul Gandhi had failed to make his own party chief minister Virbhadra Singh in Himachal Pradesh resign after he was charge-sheeted by CBI. How could he ask Tejaswi Yadav (of RJD) to resign?” the leader added.
In a statement, he stated that expecting anything from Congress and RJD on the issue of corruption has no moral justification.
Modi has been alleging that RJD president Lalu Prasad and his family members have amassed benami properties.
“It’s no use talking to Sonia Gandhi over the phone or meeting Rahul Gandhi”, Modi said.
“RJD has done nothing on CBI’s FIR against Tejaswi Yadav in the land-for-hotels case despite JD(U) repeatedly asking him to come clean in public”, Modi said, adding that it could be understood that Prasad’s party has no defence against it.
“Instead of coming to the people with facts to explain the situation, RJD is pasting posters against JD(U) spokesmen to create pressure on the party not to press for Tejaswi Yadav’s resignation”, he concluded.
