JD(U) showdown: Nitish may sack Tejashwi from cabinet, say sources

Yadav said BJP was after him because he had highlighted the prime minister's "broken promises" to youths, farmers and workers, and asserted that the RJD would not rest till they ousted the saffron party not only from Bihar but from the entire country.

Kumar, who was seated next to Labour Resources Minister and RJD leader Vijay Prakash, subsequently swapped his chair with JD (U) minister Rajiv Ranjan Singh, who was on his right.

Incidentally, in August last year, The Sunday Guardian had done a story "RJD wants Lalu's son as CM, Nitish rattled", in which Bhagalpur RJD MP Shailesh Kumar alias Bulo Mandal had recommended that Tejashwi Yadav should be made the Chief Minister of Bihar by next year (2017). It is our baby (the grand alliance), which was initiated by Nitish Kumar. Lalu's statement has put the ball back in the court of Nitish, who apparently is uncomfortable with Tejashwi in his council of ministers after the FIR lodged by the CBI against his deputy in an alleged land-for-hotels scandal and the following raids on Lalu's premises in Patna on July 7. 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 same event was attended by Chief Minister Nitish Kumar.

RJD sources said the party on Saturday made a decision to ask all its ministers to resign if Nitish Kumar insists on Tejashwi resigning.

"He (Lalu Yadav) must declare his source of income and provide details about his property to prove his innocence", JD (U) spokesperson Niraj Kumar told this newspaper. "We will give our responses to the CBI and the Enforcement Directorate whenever they call us", said Lalu. The speculations about the mahagathbandhan or the grand alliance in Bihar heading for a split today had a big development.

The compromise formula being worked out between the warring JD (U) and RJD in Bihar is expected to involve two things - the sacking of scam-tainted Tejaswi Yadav, the State's Deputy CM and Lalu Prasad's son, and his replacement with another member of Lalu's family. "This is the game of the BJP through CBI, ED and I-T to break our gathbandhan but I will not let them succeed".

"Be within limits and come clean on accusations (against Tejashwi) at the earliest", Singh said, strongly reacting to the 80-MLA remark of Ram Chandra Purve, the Bihar unit chief of the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD), and others. "There is no question at all of ending it", he said.
