FIR against me BJP's attempt to break alliance: Tejashwi Yadav

On Thursday, JD (U) state president Bashistha Narayan Singh told Tejashwi that despite his assertion that he was 14 when the alleged dubious hotel deal happened, the matter remained "far more serious and ask him to come out with a point to point rebuttal rather than make political statements".

Amid growing tension within the Bihar grand alliance, all eyes are now on the crucial JDU meeting tomorrow as chief minister Nitish Kumar will take stock of political situation, reports. Nitish Kumar, though he continued to maintain studied silence on the issue, was reportedly anguished over the RJD's attitude even as JD (U)'s unofficial four-day ultimatum to Tejaswi to resign expired Saturday. Tejaswhi's father and former Bihar chief minister Lalu Prasad is the current leader of the RJD. It may tantamount to bowing under BJP pressure."If Tejashwi is dropped, all 11 RJD ministers will also quit the government but the party will continue to support the government from outside".

The Rs 900-crore scam surfaced in the early 1990s when he was the Chief Minister.

Is Janata Dal (United) and Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) alliance heading towards split in Bihar over the corruption charges against Bihar Deputy Chief Minister Tejashwi Yadav?

Tyagi also insisted that he never sought Sonia's intervention to defuse the crisis in the grand alliance and only welcomed such a suggestion reportedly made by a Congress leader in Bihar.

"They (RJD) must come out with a rebuttal as part of the coalition "dharma", so that the Mahagathbandhan's (Grand Alliance) image in terms of public probity is not damaged", he said.

This assertion from the RJD chief thus brought an end to speculations that Tejashwi Yadav might step down from the post to save the ruling alliance. Nitish switched places with the help of JD (U) minister Rajiv Ranjan Singh who was sitting on his right side. Lalu Prasad Yadav, who has advocated a similar alliance in Uttar Pradesh between Samajwadi Party and Bahujan Samajwadi Party, has made it amply clear to his loyalists that they can't afford a fracture in the alliance. Tejashwi, who was picked over his elder brother Tej Pratap by the RJD patriarch to don the mantle of deputy CM, and Tej had attended the cabinet meeting, chaired by the chief minister, on July 12.

BJP leader Nitin Naveen, however, has said that there is no question of supporting Tejashwi.
