LJP leader Chirag Paswan on Friday said that if we want development of Bihar, it is very important for Nitish Kumar to come back to NDA. He demanded a Lalu and family free Bihar.
The rift between JD(U) and RJD has surfaced after CBI filed case against Lalu and his family in land-for-hotels scandal.
The JD(U) on Friday mounted pressure on the RJD, asking it to come clean on allegations against party minister Tejashwi Yadav with facts and not to “display arrogance” of having 80 MLAs.
Yadav, the son of RJD supremo Lalu Prasad, is the deputy chief minister of Bihar and has been named by the CBI as an accued in its probe into land-for-hotels scandal.
“The RJD, which is showing arrogance of 80 MLAs, should no forget that it was reduced to 22 MLAs in 2010 state poll and in the elections in 2015 there number swelled due to the credible face of Nitish Kumar as head of the coalition,” state JD(U) chief spokesman Sanjay Singh.
However, sources in the Congress said party president Sonia Gandhi has been playing a peacemaker between the warring Grand Alliance partners by talking to both Nitish Kumar as well Lalu Prasad to find out a mutually acceptable solution to keep the coalition intact.
