Bihar crisis: Nitish Kumar slammed by Tejashwi Yadav on Twitter; Lalu's son questions JD(U) chief's morality and honesty

On Thursday, Tejashwi Yadav took to Twitter to slam Nitish Kumar for breaking away from the Grand Alliance. Tejashwi questioned the JD(U) Nitish's sense of morality and honesty.

Responding to accusations against him in a corruption case, Tejashwi said Nitish is himself accused of murder.

Tejashwi claimed that half of Janata Dal (United) MLAs were in his party's touch and that was the reason why Nitish Kumar "was rushing to Raj Bhavan in midnight".

"Each development seemed planned. It was all pre-decided. Why was everything done in such rush? His resignation, followed by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) backing him, and staking claim to form government within hours of resignation, proves it." Tejashwi said, according to a DNA report.

Tejashwi on Thursday met Bihar governor Keshri Nath Tripathi in Patna to register protest over Nitish being invited to form his government ahead of RJD, which is the single largest party in the state Assembly. He said that he has requested Bihar governor to stall the swearing-in ceremony and give RJD a chance to prove its majority on the floor, reported ANI.

Tejashwi said that his party did not object to Nitish Kumar's support for Ram Nath Kovind during the presidential election, just to save the Grand Alliance.

He said that RJD, Congress and all those who oppose BJP-RSS and Nitish will protest and burn effigies.
