Begusarai SP Aditya Kumar said: "Prima facie, it appears that the deaths are due to consumption of surgical liquor. But the families of the deceased have not confirmed as much. We are waiting for post-mortem report."
Tejashwi's reaction comes a day after Tej Pratap tweeted that he wanted to “hand over” the reins of Hastinapur to “Arjun” (his brother Tejashwi) and head for Dwarka, fueling speculation of a rift between the brothers.
RJD supremo Lalu Prasad Yadav's son Tejaswi on Thursday said the party would hold a daylong agitation in protest of the Karnataka Governor’s decision to invite BJP leader BS Yeddyurappa to form the government.
Nitish Kumar also defended RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat over his remarks comparing Swayamsevaks with the Army, saying there was nothing wrong if a civil organisation spoke about defending the nation's borders.
