New Delhi, Feb 23: Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leader Tejashwi Yadav has stepped up his attack on his former boss and Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar claiming that he is conspiring to kill him. Tejashwi, who is Leader of Opposition in Bihar Assembly, took to Twitter to claim that the state government is trying to derail his ongoing yatra.
Tejashwi, who was the deputy CM in the Mahagathbandhan government headed by Nitish Kumar, said that the overwhelming response to his ‘Samvidhan Bachao Yatra’ has made the BJP-JD(U) alliance nervous.
“Nervous by the enormous people support for the Samvidhan Bachao Yatra, Nitish Kumar is now planning some serious conspiracy against me,” Tejashwi said. (Also Read: ‘Thank You Nitish Kumar’, Says Tejashwi Yadav After Lalu Prasad Sentenced to 3.5 Years in Jail)
“After phone tapping, there is an attempt to sabotage my yatra. I have received information from my reliable sources that attempts would be made to spike my food with poisonous substance wherever I stay during my yatra. Efforts are also being made to create trouble during my public gathering,” Lalu’s son said in a series of tweets.
Tejashwi’s charge comes days after his elder brother Tej Pratap made a bizarre statement that he had to vacate his government bungalow because Nitish Kumar and Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Modi had sent a ghost to the bungalow.
Tej Pratap Yadav was allocated a bungalow located on 3, Deshratna Road in Patna but he recently vacated the residence.
Meanwhile, the Bihar government has said that it would order an investigation into the reported illegal construction of a temple inside the bungalow that was until recently occupied by former state health minister Tej Pratap Yadav and take lawful action if the allegation was found to be true.
“Our attention has been drawn towards the matter through media reports. It is a serious matter as the bungalow is located in a VVIP area and hence, a probe will be conducted,” Minister for Building Construction Maheshwar Hazari told news agency PTI.
