Patna, July 12: Along with RJD leader Lalu Prasad Yadav, now his family is drowned in the circle of corruption charge. Regarding a railway tender case, IRTCT hotel case, Lalu’s son Tejwasvi Yadav who is current Deputy Chief Minister of Bihar has been filed for his involvement. This has created a strong ground of oppositions to demand the resignation of him from the cabinet. The coalition partner JD(U) though did not ask for the resignation of Tejswavi Yadav but asked to come out with proper facts. In answer to that, RJD has agreed to explain about charges leveled by the CBI against Lalu Prasad Yadav and his family members.

After a meeting of JD(U) legislators, ex- legislators, office bearers and district chiefs, Bihar CM Nitish Kumar has commented that they know how to oblige "gatbandhan dharma" (coalition dharma) and also making "political sacrifices".

"Party knows how to follow gatbandhan dharma...JD(U) has a record of facing political challenges by making political sacrifices," JD(U) spokesman Neeraj Kumar told. The party avoided direct conflict with RJD but asked to “explain your defense against accusations in public with facts".

After this JD(U)  meet RJD also held a meeting. Party Vice President Raghuvansh Prasad Singh emphasized that the grand alliance government is intact. But the party will come up with facts against the charges publicly.
