With the deepening of the political crisis in Bihar, RJD leader Lalu Prasad Yadav on Friday made it clear that his son and the Deputy chief minister of Bihar, Tejashwi Yadav, will not resign on the basis of mere FIR.

While talking to ANI, the RJD chief said, “The Vidhan Mandal of our party has taken a decision that Tejashwi Yadav will not resign. We will protect the grand alliance in Bihar.”

“Whatever accusations have been made against me and my family, we have already issued a clarification in the press conference. We will give our responses to the CBI and the Enforcement Directorate whenever they call us,” said Lalu.

Lalu added, “I don’t know about others. I’ll never allow BJP and RSS forces to get hold in the Bihar. It is all political conspiracy.”

The RJD chief even refuted the rumour of Congress president Sonia Gandhi having conversation with him and Nitish Kumar.


Earlier in the day, Lalu appeared in a Central Bureau of Investigation court with regard to three cases related to the multi-million-rupee fodder scam. Witness statements were recorded in the court, which had earlier exempted him from court appearance on Saturday.
