Lalu Yadav's son Tejashwi is in all sorts of trouble as he is being pressurised to quit the RJD following the corruption case which has been filed against him.

Sources close to Tejashwi say that he will wait for a sack from Bihar CM Nitish Kumar rather than quit on his own as deputy CM.

The sources added that this would be followed by mass resignations of RJD ministers from the Bihar government. However, the party would continue to support the Grand Alliance.

"The party took the decision on the ongoing row on Wednesday before Lalu left for Ranchi to appear before the CBI court in fodder scam cases. Lalu, along with his selected aides and senior members, decided to wait for Nitish to sack Tejashwi," another source close to RJD said. He added that Tejashwi's resignation would demoralise the party cadres as that could lead to a perception that RJD's first family was in the wrong.

"As per our game plan, following Tejashwi's exit, our other 11 ministers will resign but the RJD will support the government from outside to keep the Mahagathbandhan intact," he said and added that the move would earn sympathy for Tejashwi among the voters and save the party from the blame of breaking the RJD-JD(U)-Congress alliance in the state.

"Sonia ji called Lalu and Nitish on Wednesday as well as on Friday and discussed the political scenario in Bihar. Congress knows well that the Grand Alliance break-up in Bihar will be a jolt to the move to form an anti-BJP front at the Centre," the source said.
