BJP not in favour of snap polls in Bihar

According to RJD leaders, the party has decided that all its ministers in the Nitish cabinet will submit their resignations en masse to the Chief Minister if Tejashwi is compelled to quit. The JD-U had on Friday asked the RJD to come clean on the allegations against Tejashwi, the son of its supremo Lalu Prasad, with facts and not "display arrogance" of having 80 MLAs. The Bihar CM could win the chief ministerial post only because the Yadav stalwart was convicted in the fodder scam and under the new law he was barred from contesting any elections. After a series of Income Tax and CBI raids in connection to "benami property' cases related to Lalu and his kins, if there is any leader who has benefitted the most in Bihar, its Nitish Kumar". The JD (U) has also convened a meeting of its legislators at the residence of Chief Minister, Nitish Kumar.

Tejaswhi was also slated to attend, and even his name was mentioned in the invitation card for the event.

If Congress' mediation succeeds, we may expect this outcome. "People across the country are fully aware of Nitish's clean image and his stand of zero tolerance against corruption".

Chinese political prisoner Liu Xiaobo dies at age 61
His conviction in late 2009 stemmed from his co-authorship of a manifesto calling for human rights and political reform in China. Liu's main doctor said he was able to say goodbye to his 56-year-old wife and, in his final moments told her to "live well".

Breaking the alliance is not an option for JD (U) either.

The RJD has claimed that the CBI action against Tejashwi is a political conspiracy to destabilize Bihar's ruling Grand Alliance and "Nitish Kumar knew about it".

During the programme, Nitish Kumar, who was sitting beside Labour Resources minister and RJD leader Vijay Prakash, swapped his seat with Rajiv Ranjan Singh alias Lalan Singh who was sitting right to the CM, thus making a distance with the RJD minister.

It supports the 2nd Marine Aviation Wing, providing, among other services, KC-130 aircraft used for in-flight refueling. The names of the deceased were being withheld until family members were notified. "He was a Marine", said Hutto.

It is speculated that either Tejashwi had been sent a message that Nitish did not like to share dais with him amid the differences or he on his own made a decision to keep off from the function at which he was invited as special guest.

"This will pre-empt any attempt by the BJP to provide outside support to the Mr Kumar led government as well as keep the alliance afloat", sources said.

BJP sought to steer clear of the acrimony between the two ruling allies saying it is not going to extend inside or outside support if JD (U) severs ties with RJD.
