Lalu on Tejashwi Yadav's resignation; says will not resign

Posted July 17, 2017

Earlier Kumar had held a meeting with his party MLAs on Tuesday following which senior leaders from his party spoke about "coalition dharma" even as they re-iterated their party's conviction to the issue of anti-corruption. Kumar, who was sitting next to Labour Resources Minister and RJD leader Vijay Prakash, subsequently swapped his seat with JD (U) Minister Rajiv Ranjan Singh, who was sitting on his right. RJD's ally Janata Dal (United) is apparently anxious about the possible damage to its leader and chief minister Nitish Kumar's image as a "clean leader" in view of the developments. While RJD chief and Tejashwi's father Lalu Prasad Yadav ruled out his younger son's resignation, JD (U) maintained that Lalu should come clean on the source of his and his family's assets.

As these cases hit the headlines, CM Nitish Kumar publicly stated that corruption was not tolerable for him. He said Nitish's stand on corruption is clear and there would be no compromise on that. Available on Android and IOS.

Thus confirming that the Yadav scion will not share the frame with the JD-U president. They want to stick with the grand alliance by backing the beleaguered RJD chief. Senior leaders in the party maintain that if he alone resigns, it will send a wrong signal, nearly of accepting the crime and bending to the JD (U)'s whims. "It's a conspiracy by BJP chief Amit Shah and the Prime Minister to break the alliance in Bihar", deputy chief minister Tejashwi Yadav said in Patna on Wednesday.

Konta edges Halep & will face Venus in Wimbledon semi-final
The 37-year-old Williams made her Grand Slam debut at the 1997 French Open , seven months before Konjuh was born. Halep was obviously distracted by the call and looked to umpire Kader Nouni to rule the point to be replayed.

Tejashwi Yadav has tweeted that he will not resign from his post and the rumours of his resignation are fake. Since, Lalu's sons were newbie in politics, both Congress and Lalu had no better leader than Nitish Kumar to present before the voters of Bihar. However, Lalu, on Friday night, reiterated that his son was not going to step down over an FIR lodged against him, adding that there was no threat to the Mahagathbandhan government in Bihar.

The FIR was lodged in connection with a private party allegedly giving three acres of land in 2004 in Patna to them in return of getting licence to run two IRCTC hotels at Ranchi and Puri when Lalu Prasad was Railway minister.
