Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) supremo Lalu Prasad Yadav on Friday said that his son Tejashwi Yadav, who has been facing corruption charges, will remain as the Deputy Chief Minister of Bihar. The leader while speaking to ANI was quoted saying: “The Vidhan Mandal of our party has taken a decision that Tejashwi Yadav will not resign.” Defending his son over the recent demand for his expulsion from the post, Yadav said,”An FIR is not sufficient reason for the resignation.”

Commenting on the charges filed against him and his family by the Central Bureau of investigation (CBI), the leader said, “Whatever accusations have been made against me and my family, we have already issued a clarification in the press conference. We will give our responses to the CBI and the Enforcement Directorate whenever they call us.” The recent raids by the CBI on Lalu Prasad Yadav’s residence and the cases filed against him and his son Tejaswi in an alleged land-for-hotels scandal has ignited a political difference in the state’s grand alliance.

The CBI had last week lodged a corruption case against Lalu, his wife Rabri Devi, son Tejaswi; former Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) Managing Director P.K. Goyal; and the wife of Lalu’s confidante Prem Chand Gupta, Sujata on allegations of awarding the tender for development, maintenance and operation of hotels in Ranchi and Puri in 2006.

The government agency also conducted searches at 12 locations across Patna, Delhi, Gurugram and other places. However, Lalu Prasad Yadav has denied the allegations made against him and termed it as a political conspiracy hatched by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

              BRAVO LAALOO YADAV !!! NITHISH IS AN OPPORTUNIST. HE DITCHED GEORGE FERNANDES WHO HELPED HIM TO POLITICALLY COME UP. LATER HE DITCHED SHARAD YADAV TO TAKE POWER AT CENTER AND KEEP SHARAD RUND THE PARTY. HE MADE DEAL WITH YOU. YOU WERE GENEROUS ENOUGH TO GIVE CM POST EVEN THOUGH YOU HAD 80 MLAs AND HE ONLY HAD 71 MLAs. I THINK IT IS TIME YOU BRING HIS GOVT DOWN IN BIHAR, EVEN THOUGH BJP MIGHT KEEP HIM FLOATING. BUT AMIT SHAH IS A SMART COOKIE, HE WILL PULL THE PLUG AT THE RIGHT MOMENT. BJP DOESN'T NEED NITHISH TO WIN ELECTION IN BIHAR NEXT TIME. NITHIS DOESN'T UNDERSTAND THAT BJP IS USING HIM TO BREAK RJD-JDU ALLIANCE. ONCE THATS ACHIEVED, BJP WILL FORCE AN ELECTION WITHIN 6 MONTHS.

                  IF A FIRST INFORMATION REPORT BY A INVESTIGATION AGENCY IS SUFFICIENT REASON FOR A MINISTER TO RESIGN THEN ONE THIRD OF BJP MINISTER FROM STATE AND CENTRAL CABINETS MUST ALSO RESIGN EVEN BEFORE BIHAR DEPUTY CHEIF MINISTER IS ASKED TO RESIGN. WILL NALAYAK NMODI AND OTHER CHEIF MINISTERS OF BJP RULED STATES ASK THEM OR ELSE SACK THEM?

                    Pope is the biggest molester in the world. Pope and just entire white supremacist mafia organization has converted all brown slaves as their beitches and use them to rape them. In return brown Christians likebyoubrape kids in Christian churches and missionary schools and blame it on Jesus.
