Tejashwi Yadav distances himself from Nitish Kumar, skips government event

Political compulsions keep Lalu Nitish together After Deciding Not To Step Down As Deputy CM, Tejashwi Yadav Upsets People With His FB Post

This has fuelled speculation about the nature of the RJD's response to any possible sacking of Tejashwi."RJD made a decision to wait and see what Nitish does before Lalu went to Ranchi to appear before the CBI court in fodder scam cases on Thursday". Nitishji did not demand resignation. said JD (U) leader KC Tyagi told ANI.

RJD sources said that Tejashwi's resignation would demoralise the party cadres as that could lead to a perception that RJD's first family was in the wrong.

Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and Lalu Prasad have called meetings of the party's lawmakers in Patna on Sunday, separately, to prep their lawmakers for Monday's presidential polls. "A senior RJD Cabinet minister, Abdul Bari Siddiqui, is strongly opposed to Tej Pratap's promotion, though Lalu wants him to replace Tejashwi in case he is forced to resign".

Differences have surfaced within the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) over withdrawing support from the Nitish Kumar government in Bihar, with as many as 37 MLAs threatening to defect to the Janata Dal (United) in that case. Earlier in the day, the JD (U) said that RJD legislators should "stop boasting about its 80 MLAs" and Lalu should come clean on the source of his family's assets.

Amid growing rift within the members of the Bihar coalition, the JD (U) continued to mount pressure on the RJD. Bharti, RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav's daughter, had appeared before the central probe agency on Tuesday and was grilled for about eight hours. Media reports are showing that Sonia ji has held talks with me and Nitish ji, all this is false.

Russian-American lobbyist: I just strolled into Trump Jr. meeting
During an explosive interview on Tuesday night, Mr Trump Jr. admitted he "probably would have done things a little differently". He got dual citizenship about eight years ago. "I never thought this would be such a big deal, to be honest", he told the AP.

Labour Minister Vijay Prakash, who is from the RJD, said, "I do not know why Tejaswiji did not come to the function". Being a minority partner, the question they are agonising over is which side to back if the alliance does break.

Tyagi also insisted that he never sought Sonia's intervention to defuse the crisis in the grand alliance and only welcomed such a suggestion reportedly made by a Congress leader in Bihar.

This assertion from the RJD chief thus brought an end to speculations that Tejashwi Yadav might step down from the post to save the ruling alliance.

JD (U) Deputy Leader in the Assembly Shyam Rajak, however said, "Everybody should maintain transparency in public life".
