Patna: Bihar Deputy Chief Minister Tejashwi Yadav will not step down from his post, the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) cleared after party meet on Monday.
As per sources, majority of MLAs in the meeting came out in support of Tejashwi saying,”Why will he resign”?
Meanwhile, it has been reported that the announcement by RJD has disappointed Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, who has not commented on the CBI raids on Lalu Prasad and his family yet.
