Under pressure to quit from the post of Bihar Deputy Chief Minister, RJD leader and Lalu Prasad Yadav’s son Tejashwi Yadav was seen batting with his young nephew in Patna. Tejashwi shared this video on Twitter on Tuesday, hours before he blasted Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP chief Amit Shah for allegedly using the CBI to implicate him in a “fake” case. A former aspiring cricketer who appeared for Delhi Daredevils in the Indian Premier League, Tejashwi also tweeted: “Just play, have fun. Enjoy the game because sports don’t build character. They reveal it.”

Talking to reporters on Wednesday, Tejashwi ruled out any possibility of resigning from Nitish Kumar Cabinet even as pressure mounted on him from ally JD(U) to quit after CBI filed a FIR against him.

Tejashwi claimed that FIR against him was a conspiracy by PM Modi and BJP chief Amit Shah as they fear him. He claimed BJP fears his father Lalu Prasad and was constantly trying to break the ruling Grand Alliance in Bihar. Last week, the CBI had registered a FIR against Lalu and his family members including Tejashwi, his mother and sister, in connection with alleged irregularities by RJD chief in 2006, when he was the Union Railway Minister. The irregularities were allegedly carried out in awarding the tender for maintenance of IRCTC hotels by then Railway Minister Lalu. CBI had also raided premises connected with Lalu, including his residence in Patna.

Meanwhile, the JD(U) has given an ultimatum to Tejashwi to come out clean. “We are in a mahagathbandhan, but to maintain the coalition, the responsibility falls on everyone. Hence, he needs to come out clean on the FIR filed by the CBI. We cannot sit silently and the JDU cannot compromise on its principles. We will take our decision accordingly,” JD(U) leader Ajay Alok told ANI.

On Tuesday, Bihar CM Nitish Kumar had called a meeting of his party leaders to discuss the issue. Sources told ANI that the party has decided to give some more time to Tejashwi. “Party knows how to follow gathbandhan dharma…JD(U) has a record of facing political challenges by making political sacrifices,” JD(U) spokesman Neeraj Kumar told reporters while briefing about the meeting.
