Enforcement Directorate questions Tejashwi Yadav for nine hours

Unhappiness in RJD over prominence given to Tejashwi Lalu elected RJD's president unopposed for 10th time
Bennie Garza | 14 November, 2017, 12:43

Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) on Monday re-elected Lalu Prasad Yadav as President of the party.

"We (RJD leaders) demand immediate roll back of GST and note-ban because both these decisions have badly hit economy and adversely affected poor and middle class families".

Lalu Prasad, while commenting on RJD state president Ram Chander Purve's recent statement in which he suggested that Tejashwi Yadav should be the next RJD chief ministerial candidate, praised the "leadership quality" of Tejashwi and said that he was well ahead than many leaders.

Along with Tejashwi, father Lalu Prasad, mother Rabri Devi and sister Misa Bharti are also being investigated in connection with a money laundering probe into the 2006 IRCTC hotels maintenance contract case. In July, when JDU left the Grand Alliance, then too Lalu had openly praised Tejashwi, saying that the "young boy" had done good work as a minister and Deputy CM in the Nitish Kumar Cabinet. Tejashwi, who is now being investigated for corruption, was removed as deputy CM. However, the recent development received muted disagreement from a section of the party.

Prasad, who was the sole candidate in the fray, was declared elected by the party's national election officer Jagadanand Singh after lapse of the time limit set for withdrawal of nomination papers, a RJD statement from Assistant Election Officer Chitranjan Gagan said here.

This is the second time Tejashwi was questioned by the agency in this case. They are our malik (master). In the wake of the disintegration of the Mahagathbandhan, Nitish, while returning the barbs of the RJD, had on several occasions reminded the latter of its stock going down to only 22 MLAs in the 243-member Bihar Assembly after the 2010 state polls, which the JD (U)-BJP combination had won convincingly.
