Patna, July 24: The Bihar grand alliance unity is still under question after Tejashwi has been filed FIR by CBI in IRTC Hotel case. Whereas JD (U) is clearly concerned about Nitish Kumar’s corruption free image, JDU on other hand does not want to resign Tejashwi from his deputy CM post. BJP is also demanding Lal’s son resignation. To talk about the alliance, Nitish Kumar met Congress Vice-President Rahul Gandhi on Saturday. After that, RJD has denied any kind of rift in Grand alliance.
RJD has constantly alleged BJP for manipulating JD (U) to create the current political crisis. "Whatever is being said in the media is all speculation and we don't pay much attention to speculation," RJD leader Manoj Jha said. As per his demand, people in the alliance are together.
Regarding irregularities in a Hotel Tender case, CBI filed a case against former Bihar chief minister Lalu Prasad Yadav, his wife Rabri Devi, their son Tejaswi who is Bihar’s Deputy Chief Minister. In 2006, the tender was awarded to private Sujata Hotels for development, maintenance and operation of BNR Hotels in Ranchi and Puri. Irregularities have been noticed and based on that allegation CBI registered the case.
RJD Supremo Lalu Prasad denied any allegation. As usually, he alleged BJP for doing political conspiracy against him. The Congress is saying that the alliance will hold strong against these allegations.
“Tejashwi Yadav's resignation or sacking is the biggest issue in Bihar right now. How can tainted minister sit beside CM?” BJP Leader Sushil Modi said.
