Bihar crisis: Nitish Kumar, Lalu Yadav to hold separate meeting today

Bihar RJD JD, Tejaswi Yadav Nitish Kumar Lalu Prasad Yadav

The RJD chief also asserted that there will not be any problem to the Grand Alliance from the RJD. Tejashwi's name had been printed as a "distinguished guest" on promotional pamphlets for the programme on Vishwa Yuva Kaushal Divas.

At the heart of the controversy is a spate of recent raids by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), on both Prasad along with his family members, including son Yadav. He also dismissed reports of a rift in the "mahagatbandhan", the JD (U), RJD, and Congress alliance that rules the state. They believe Lalu and his family are being targeted.

Sources told this newspaper that a sizeable number of leaders in the JD (U) say that aligning with the BJP would be suicidal for the party. "Nitish ji has never compromised with his ideology". Senior leaders in the party maintain that if he alone resigns, it will send a wrong signal, nearly of accepting the crime and bending to the JD (U)'s whims.

The development comes as the Tejashwi Yadav continuation as the Deputy CM has been under scrutiny by after being named by CBI in its FIR in a corruption case.

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.

The BJP has also been actively wooing Nitish.

"Mahagathbandhan (ruling Grand Alliance) is intact in Bihar and he and his party will not do anything which can give any space to the Rashtriya Swyamsevak Sangh (RSS) and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) to step into Bihar".

Patna, Jul 16 Amid the present acrimony between ruling JD (U) and RJD of the grand alliance, BJP today said it does not favour snap polls in Bihar. Sonia reportedly intervened at the instance of JD (U) leaders, who wanted to see that the issue does not precipitate the crisis further. Putting the ball in the court of RJD, the party in a terse message to Lalu asked his son to "defend accusations in public with facts". "The case relates to alleged manipulation in the award the of contract for maintenance of two hotels run by a subsidiary of the Indian Railways €" IRCTC €" when the RJD chief was railways minister in the United Progressive Alliance government.
