Chief Minister Nitish Kumar’s Janata Dal United on Saturday demanded Tejashwi Yadav of the Rashtriya Janata Dal not to end up being the leader of the opposition in the Bihar Assembly due to claims of corruption and criminal cases versus him.
The demand by the ruling party came after JD (U) leader Mewa Lal Chaudhary resigned as the state’s education minister on Friday, November 20 over the charge of corruption.
At a joint press conference kept in Patna on Saturday, November 22, JD (U) state president Vashishtha Narayan Singh, working president Ashok Choudhary and spokesperson Sanjay Singh, Neeraj Kumar and Ajay Alok criticised Tejashwi Yadav for hitting out at Chief Minister Nitish Kumar for designating Mewa Lal Chaudhary as the education minister in his cabinet.
After Mewa Lal Chaudhary had resigned over allegation of corruption Tejashwi had taken on Nitish Kumar for making a “corrupt person” the education minister of Bihar.
The JD (U) leaders stated that the resignation of Mewa Lal Chaudhary just two days after his appointment is a testament to Chief Minister Nitish Kumar’s “absolutely no tolerance for criminal offense, corruption, and communalism”.
They further stated that the superintendent of authorities of the district worried has been asked to continue with its investigation versus Mewa Lal which clearly shows that the Bihar government of Nitish Kumar is not ready to protect him.
The three-phase Bihar assembly elections had concluded on November 7 and the NDA alliance led by Nitish Kumar had actually emerged triumphant after the counting on November20 Nitish Kumar was sworn in as the chief minister of the state for a 4th successive term.
The Rashtriya Janata Dal of Tejashwi Yadav had become the single biggest party followed by BJP that bagged 74 seats.
