Bihar deputy chief minister, Tejashwi Yadav, has finally spoken against the allegation of corruption charges against him in connection with a land-for-hotel case. The RJD leader has accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Amit Shah for conspiring against him.
Tejashwi is under investigation by the CBI for amassing Benami properties in 2004. On Wednesday after attending the cabinet meeting with Nitish Kumar, Tejashwi Yadav spoke to the media regarding corruption charges against him.
He said, “I didn’t have the mustache in 2004. How a 13 to a 14-year-old kid can do all this. BJP is afraid of his father Lalu Prasad Yadav and targeted him. Now they are targeting me.”
Tejashwi even ruled out on news of his resignation saying there is not a single allegation against him during his stint as a minister. He said, “We have worked for the people of the state. My party worked for the weaker and deprived section of society. No one can raise fingers on me as a road construction minister. So why should I resign?” he asked
The RJD leader called the CBI raid and FIR against him as “Politically motivated” move and said, he would continue to work for people of Bihar and fight against anti-state forces.
Tejashwi further announced that his party would go to the Janata Ki Adalat (people’s court) and expose the saffron party. “We will root out BJP not only from the state but from the country. Mahagathbandhan will continue to serve people of the state. Our alliance is intact,” he added.
