RJD chief Lalu Yadav has said that his son Tejashwi Yadav will not resign from the post of deputy Chief Minister and has also said nobody will be allowed to break the grand alliance.

“Tejashwi Yadav istifa nahi denge. FIR darj hone se koi istifa nahi deta hai (Tejashwi Yadav will not resign. No one resigns because of an FIR),” Lalu said after a meeting with RJD legislators.

Lalu said the decision was of the RJD legislators. “RJD ki or se gatbandhan mein koi aaanch nahi aayega, jisko jo karna hai kar le (There will not any problem to the Grand Alliance from the RJD. Let anyone do what he wants),” he said.

Earlier in the day, Nitish Kumar’s Janata Dal (United) had said that RJD legislators should “stop boasting about its 80 MLAs” and Lalu should come clean on the source of his and his family’s assets, which is now a cause of tension between the two parties.

Sonia Gandhi had called up Nitish Kumar to discuss the ongoing situation between RJD and JDU.

JD(U) national spokesperson K C Tyagi called the talks between Sonia and Nitish a “happy sign”.

But it looks like the Bihar leaders of the party are creating pressure on Tejashwi to resign.

“The RJD should have known that when it fought alone in the 2010 Assembly elections, it was reduced to a 22-MLA party. It is only because of Nitish Kumar’s clean image that the Grand Alliance got 178 seats in the 2015 Assembly polls and RJD got 80 seats. The RJD must not be under any illusion of its make-believe and inflated strength” said Sanjay Singh the party spokesperson.

Another JD (U) spokesperson, Neeraj Kumar, said: “Those who are facing a CBI case must disclose their assets and also reveal their sources. This alone can be a befitting answer to the Opposition.”
