    Nitish Kumar did all the drama to sit in the lap of RSS-BJP: Tejashwi Yadav

Nitish might inform the governor that he has sacked his deputy Tejashwi Yadav from the cabinet or He himself can resign and recommend dissolution of Assembly.

Security has been beefed up around the Rajbhawan. Governor Kesri Nath Tripathi was supposed to leave Patna today but he changed his itinerary and decided to stay back.

Earlier the RJD also held meeting of its party after which party chief Lalu Prasad categorically rejected demands of resignation of his deputy chief minister son Tejashwi Yadav.

Amid rumours of rift within the Bihar Grand Alliance, Lalu on Wednesday tried to dispel rumours around strains in the alliance. Addressing the press, Lalu said that the so-called bitterness in the alliance was made by media, adding that Nitish has not asked for his son Tejashwi Yadav's resignation.

The alliance partners are said to be at loggerheads over a CBI case against the Yadav family, including Tejashwi, who is also the deputy chief minister of Bihar.

Lalu, clearing the air around RJD's position, once again ruled out Tejashwi's resignation. "There is no question of Tejashwi's resignation. All of this is BJP's propaganda and everyone knows this," Lalu said.

"We have built the alliance with great difficulty, it will endure," the RJD chief said. He, however, added that Nitish can pull out of the alliance if he wants to, clearly signalling that who will take the blame in case the alliance is scrapped. Lalu's wife and former Bihar chief minister Rabri Devi, echoed his sentiment, adding "jo hoga dekha jayega (We will see whatever happens)."
