Tejashwi Yadav should either tender resignation or get sacked: BJP

New Delhi: BJP leader Sushil Kumar Modi on July 17 said Bihar Deputy Chief Minister and Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leader Tejashwi Prasad Yadav should either tender his resignation or get fired from his position. He added that Bihar Chief Minister and Janata Dal (United) chief Nitish Kumar should “stand firm” in seeking Tejashwi’s resignation.
“Tejashwi Yadav has only two options, either tender his resignation or get sacked,” Modi, who is also the Bihar BJP parliamentary board chief, was quoted as saying by PTI. On Nitish Kumar, he added, “BJP is standing with him on his decision on this issue.” The JD(U) had said RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav should come clean on the source of his and his family’s assets.
Meanwhile, speaking to reporters outside the state Assembly, Tejashwi claimed that calls for his resignation are “only in the media”. The impasse between the JD(U) and RJD intensified last week after Tejashwi skipped an official function on July 15, during which he was to share the dias with Nitish Kumar.
Lalu had earlier ruled out the possibility of his son resigning from his post. “Tejashwi Yadav will not resign. No one resigns because of an FIR)” he had said.
