“Has Nitish asked for the resignation of Tejaswi Yadav?” Prasad asked in reply to a volley of questions by scribes regarding JD(U) insistence that the embattled deputy chief minister should come clean on accusations in public which is politically being construed as JD (U)’s demand of his resignation.

PATNA: RJD President Lalu Prasad on Wednesday ruled out resignation by his son Tejaswi Prasad Yadav as Bihar’s deputy chief minister in the wake of the CBI filing an FIR against him as an accused in land-for-hotels case.

“Has Nitish asked for the resignation of Tejaswi Yadav?” Prasad asked in reply to a volley of questions by scribes regarding JD(U) insistence that the embattled deputy chief minister should come clean on accusations in public which is politically being construed as JD (U)’s demand of his resignation.

“Are they police that we have to answer them?” he shot back to another question that JD(U) spokesmen have been regularly saying that Tejaswi has to come clean in the public domain.

In its legislature party meeting, the RJD had earlier too ruled out resignation of Tejaswi Yadav. Prasad, who was speaking after a meeting of the RJD legislature party at the 10, Circular Road residence of Rabri Devi, said, “The RJD legislators will discharge their functions under the leadership of Tejaswi Yadav and Rabri Devi in the state assembly and legislative council respectively.”
