Tejashwi Yadav in Assembly: Bihar Coming down heavily on the BJP, Bihar deputy Chief Minister Tejashwi Yadav said the saffron party acts vindictively when it starts to lose or fears losing. He also termed CBI, ED and IT as BJP's three jamai. The CBI conducted searches at several leaders of the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) in connection with the alleged land-for-jobs scam that took place when Lalu Prasad was the railway minister. The search operation was carried out at the premises of several senior leaders of the RJD, including MLC Sunil Singh, Rajya Sabha MPs Ashfaq Karim and Faiyaz Ahmed, and former MLC Subodh Rai, officials said. 

"When BJP fears or loses in the state, it puts ahead its three 'jamai', CBI, ED and IT," Tejashwi Yadav said in Legislative Assembly. "People sitting in Delhi do not understand the spirit of Bihar. Intimidation does not work here. Sending three 'jamaai' is not going to scare us. The BJP is looking like a wedding procession without the groom," remarked the young leader in an apparent dig at the saffron party’s inability to decide on who would now be the leader of the opposition.

Cornering the government on the fugitives like Nirav Modi and Vijay Mallya, the Bihar deputy CM said, " When I go to foreign countries, BJP issues lookout notices against me & when fraudsters like Nirav Modi run away, they don't do anything."

"CBI is conducting a raid at a mall in Gurugram, Haryana. I have got information that this mall which is currently being raided by CBI was inaugurated by a BJP MP. Don't know why my name is being dragged into this, a narrative is being created by some," he added.

 

Taking part in a debate on the motion of confidence moved by the new 'Mahagathbandhan' government, Yadav accused the BJP of having tried to "break" Chief Minister Nitish Kumar's party in a bid to "wipe out socialist ideology".

"My father Lalu Prasad, mother Rabri Devi, my sisters and I are all paying the price for our commitment to socialism. The CM and I have the same ideology. You (BJP) cannot reap what we socialists have sown," said Yadav.
