The Weekend Leader - Queried on Tejashwi's resignation, Lalu loses temper

Queried on Tejashwi's resignation, Lalu loses temper



RJD chief Lalu Prasad on Friday lost his cool when asked about the demands for the resignation of his Bihar Minister son Tejashwi Yadav from the Nitish Kumar Cabinet following CBI action in a railways hotels' leasing case.

"Have you ensured the (electoral) victory of Tejashwi," the Rashtriya Janata Dal leader countered sharply when a reporter asked him on the issue at the airport here. 

When pressed on the issue, the former Bihar Chief Minister said: "People have elected him." 

Lalu arrrived here to appear in a Central Bureau of Investigation court with regard to three cases related to the multi-million-rupee fodder scam. Witness statements were recorded in the court, which had earlier exempted him from court appearance on Saturday. - IANS
