PATNA: Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar today clarified there was no threat to the Grand Alliance government in state amid the prevailing tension between two major partners, RJD and the JD-U.
“You please be comfortable…there is no threat to the government,” the NDTV quoted the chief minister as telling the media in Delhi on Tuesday.
The observation is likely to end the continuing conflicts between the two key partners who have been at war with each other over the issue of resignation of deputy chief minister Tejashwi Yadav, son of RJD chief Lalu Prasad.
Trouble broke out early this month after Tejashwi was named as an accused in a corruption case by the CBI.
Subsequently, the JD-U asked him to clarify his stand in public while indirectly telling him to resign in line with chief minister’s zero tolerance on corruption but the RJD announced he will not resign.
Now, it will be interesting to see how the grand alliance tackles the opposition BJP which has announced to disrupt the House proceedings during its monsoon session if Tejashwi didn’t resign.
Barely two days are left for the monsoon session to start while Tejashwi is yet to resign.
As per reports, the chief minister had not talked to his ally Lalu Prasad in the past one fortnight, leading to the whole confusion.
