Nitish Kumar should be ruling Bihar with loyalty, perseverance: BJP

  • Nitish Kumar had held a meeting with his party MLAs on Tuesday

Rumour of a rift in "mahagathbandhan" takes over Bihar's politics as Deputy Chief Minister Tejashwi Yadav misses attending a skill development event in the state capital despite Chief Minister Nitish Kumar's invitation.

Later, Industries minister and JD (U) leader Jai Kumar Singh said that the CM changed his seat in order to have a better view of the screen (TV monitor) fitted in front of him.

Gopalkrishna Gandhi, the unanimous choice of 18 opposition parties for vice president, called Kumar as well to express his thanks, the JD (U) chief general secretary said.

The current Bihar government is a coalition between the JD-U - whose leader Nitish Kumar is the current chief minister - and the RJD. "Lalu, along with some key aides and senior RJD members, decided that they should wait for Nitish's action", an RJD functionary said on condition of anonymity. It may tantamount to bowing under BJP pressure."If Tejashwi is dropped, all 11 RJD ministers will also quit the government but the party will continue to support the government from outside".

The name plaque of the Deputy Chief Minister had to be first covered with a piece of cloth and then removed altogether from the dais. The JD (U) had earlier said that the party was not convinced with Tejashwi Yadav's public statement and wanted him to give an explanation on corruption charges levelled against him.

However, RJD supreme Lalu Yadav later informed that Tejashwi will not resign. "No matter what comes, RJD would not allow the grand alliance government to fall", he added. Media reports are showing that Sonia ji has held talks with me and Nitish ji, all this is false. "We will protect the grand alliance in Bihar".

The Congress's mediation had been openly sought, especially from the JD (U)'s side, and the Gandhis have indeed stepped in.

"Be within limits and come clean on accusations (against Tejashwi) at the earliest", Singh said, strongly reacting to the 80-MLA remark of Ram Chandra Purve, the Bihar unit chief of the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD), and others. "We respect people's mandate and also strictly follow alliance dharma but RJD must give clarification on CBI raids and FIR against their leaders", he said.

Labour Minister Vijay Prakash, who is from the RJD, said, "I do not know why Tejaswiji did not come to the function".
