A day after JD (U) asked him to come clean, Bihar Deputy Chief Minister Tejaswi Prasad Yadav yesterday virtually ruled out his resignation, while dubbing the FIR registered against him under various anti-graft provisions as "political vendetta". RJD's ally Janata Dal (United) is apparently anxious about the possible damage to its leader and chief minister Nitish Kumar's image as a "clean leader" in view of the developments.
According to sources, Nitish Kumar wants Congress president Sonia Gandhi to intervene in the issue and mediate to solve the impasse between Nitish and Lalu. "Nitish will take an appropriate decision (on Tejashwi) at the right time", Singh said, adding JD (U) had not sought Tejashwi's resignation.Jha, Nitish's close political aide, stressed that the CM was at the forefront to demand tough action against those holding benami properties.

"The RJD will continue to support the Nitish government from outside so as not to provide any opportunity to the BJP to extend support to him to run the government", they said.
Lalu, on his return from Ranchi late on Friday night after appearing in courts in connection with fodder scam cases, had categorically said that Tejashwi would not resign and claimed that the case against him was "politically motivated". "Hence, Lalu should also follow the coalition dharma and stand with us at the time of such crisis", Singh said.
