Dangal of politics || As the relations between look, the ruling parties have become tensed soon after the raids conducted by the CBI on Lalu Prasad Yadav and his family.
Tensions have been running high in the alliance since the CBI registered a FIR against Lalu, his wife Rabri Devi and son Tejashwani Yadav who is deputy CM in the Bihar government.
Nitish Kumar, the Chief Minister of Bihar, requested the government to remove Lalu Prasad Yadav’s Son Tejashwani and Tej Prasad Yadav from the ministry.
Since, the former CM and the leader of RJD Lalu Prasad Yadav refused the request for the removal of his from his position, a crucial JD(U)meet today as RJD says Lalu says Lalu son won’t quit.

Chief Minister Nitish Kumar is likely to break his silence on corruption cases on Lalu Prasad Yadav and his family.
Recently, on Monday, RJD leader Jagdanand Singh said that Bihar CM Nitish Kumar spoke to Lalu Prasad Yadav after the CBI raids on him and his family members last week.
>>> The Netas of RJD is reportedly downplaying the differences with Nitish Kumar and claims that Lalu Prasad Yadav had spoken to the CM but are silent on Tejashwani makes it clear that Tejashwani is not I the mood of quitting as yet.
The JD(U) sources, in fact, feel that Tejashwani’s continuance in the ministry is becoming increasingly untenable. JD(U) camp is unhappy at RJD as the latter has not been able to answer questions raised by enforcement agencies about the properties of Lalu Prasad Yadav.
JD(U) sources also state that the RJD had an option to agree with the removal of Tejashwani until a probe is completed and one of the senior leaders like Abdul Bari Siddiqui should have been promoted to rank.
>>> On the other hand, BJP offers support to CM in Bihar’s Interest.
Since the CBI raids against the RJD chief and his family on Friday in corruption cases, BJP continued to mount pressure on Nitish to remove Lalu Prasad Yadav’s son Tejashwani from the position of Deputy CM.
JD(U) has 71 MLAs in the 243 member house. With the support of NDAs 58 MLAs including 53 of BJP, the number would add UpTo 129, seven more than the magic figure of 122 which Nitish would require in case he parts ways with RJD and Congress.
