RJD spokesperson Mrityunjay Tewari said: “The party has taken serious note of Yadav’s remarks. He has been involved in anti-party activities for some time. The party has been considering action against him.”
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.
