Bihar: As the fire in Bihar politics is escalating, with continuous pressure on Nitish Kumar from Centre to sack Lalu’s son Tejashwi Yadav, official sources have spilled the beans and said that a decision on deputy CM is likely to take place soon after Presidential poll.
After stubborn statements by Rashtriya Janta Dal, refuting any chances of Tejashwi’s resignation; Nitish’s firm stand on the matter where Tejashwi has been accused of being involved in a money laundering case, Lalu’s party has finally budged and is ‘ready’ to take an action to save the Mahagathbandhan.
Fearing that any action against Tejashwi would affect the Presidential poll, both RJD and Congress wanted to hold the matter till the polling is over.
After the elections are over, it is highly likely that Tejashwi might have to resign or Nitish might sack him.
As per sources, it is also highly likely that RJD supports Nitish from outside.
Blaming the centre for the whole controversy surrounding Tejashwi, RJD said, “ED, CBI and IT work for and as per the orders of the government”
RJD also termed the whole matter as a political vendetta.
Even Tejashwi Yadav, while commenting on the allegations against him lashed out at Government and said, “There is an emergency like situation in the country”. When asked about his resignation, the leader ducted the question.
