Fight with Nitish Kumar based on ideology: Tejashwi Yadav

Motihari, Aug 10:-- Barely a fortnight after  Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar stitched an alliance with the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), Rashtriya Janata Dal leader Tejashwi Yadav on Wednesday said his party's fight with the JD(U) chief is an ideological one.


Tejashwi, who is Lalu's son, said this while holding Gandhi Yatra in Motihari  the day when the country is celebrating the Quit India Movement.


On July 26, Nitish left the grand alliance with RJD, Congress over the corruption issue of then Bihar Deputy Chief Minister Tejashwi Yadav. On the same day of his resignation as the CM of the state, Nitish stiched an alliance with the BJP.


The rift between Nitish Kumar and Lalu Prasad of RJD had reached a flashpoint over corruption issue and earlier deputy CM Tejashwi Yadav and his father Lalu Yadav had ruled out resignation of Tejashwi over a CBI probe arguing that a fake case was filed against him.


The move of Nitish came at  a time when the state government was facing tremendous challenges with the ruling RJD and JD(U) locked in a conflict over the issue of Tejashwi Yadav's resignation.


Nitish Kumar's JDU had insisted that the Lalu Yadav scion should step down to spare the ruling coalition a stigma, the RJD asserted that nothing such happened that warrants the young minister's resignation.


Tejashwi Yadav's resignation was demanded over corruption charges made against him.


Following a series of raids in the residences of Lalu Prasad Yadav and others, the CBI had registered cases of corruption against the RJD chief and his son, Tejashwi.


The RJD has, however, said that by "framing" Tejashwi Yadav, the second man in the cabinet, the BJP-led Centre is out for a "political vendetta."


Though RJD emerged as the largest party in the Assembly election in 2015, BJP had 50 odd seats under its belt which proved to be handy for JD(U) to instantly form the government.


Tejashwi on Wednesday attacked the Bihar CM for joining hands with Gandhi's killers (with references to BJP and Nathuram Godse).


"I apologise to Mahatma Gandhi as I held the yatra with Nitish ji (Nitish Kumar) last year since I was unaware of his intention" the former Bihar Dy CM said.


RJD will hold an opposition's rally in Patna on August 27.
