BJP leader Sushil Kumar Modi once again urged Chief Minister Nitish Kumar to sack Tejashwi
RJD leader and Bihar Deputy Chief Ministeron Wednesday said the allegations of corruption against him were lies and a conspiracy by the BJP, led by Amit Shah and Prime Minister Narendra Modi, after attending his first Cabinet meeting since the CBI raids against him.
: Tejashwi, the younger son of RJD chief Lalu Prasad, argued that the allegations being levelled against him were related to events which occurred in 2004, when he was a 14-year-old minor.
Tejashwi has made it clear that he will not resign despite alliance partner and Bihar Chief Minister, Nitish Kumar, calling upon him to come clean. Tejashwi has been named as an accused in a CBI case in connection with benami property.
Instead, Yadav said he would go to the people to explain how and why the BJP, led by Shah and Modi, has conspired against him. “This allegation is of 2004 when I was merely 14 years old, and my moustache and beard had not begun to sprout on my face. Do you think a minor like me would have committed a scam?”
Further, Tejashwi stressed that the grand alliance in Bihar, comprising Lalu’s RJD, the Nitish-led JD (U), and Congress, remained intact.
