RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav on Wednesday took potshots at the Bharatiya Janata Party after the saffron party was handed a crushing defeat by the Samajwadi Party in Uttar Pradesh and just managed to retain Bhabua assembly seat in Bihar.

A jubilant Tejashwi dealt a sarcastic blow to the BJP after his party won the Jehanabad seat in Bihar bye-elections saying he expects more ED and CBI actions now. “Bihar ke upmukhyamatri itne ghotalon mein phanse hue hain par koi karyawahi ya jaanch nahi ho rahi hai. Ab humein shanka hai ki iss jeet ke baad UP aur Bihar mein jo Modi ji, Amit Shah, ED aur CBI karyawahi karne mein aur tez ho jaayenge (Bihar chief minister Sushil Modi is accused in corruption cases. But no investigation are being conducted. However, after the bypolls results, we expect Modi and Amit Shah to speed up ED and CBI probe in Bihar and UP),” said Yadav.

    If what Tejashwi Yadav prophesies holds true, it will be a welcome move although the verdict in 2G Marans' discharge in Telephone exchange installation may or may not follow the course in CoalG etc.

      Let me hope that this is the beginning of the end of the BJP. Let RJD, SP, BSP use this opportunity to set right their agenda and grow.

        RJD must concentrate, daily, in consolidating the Goodwill of the People for forming the government in Bihar.
