New Delhi [India], July 14 (ANI): Dubbing the reports of split between the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) and Janata Dal (United) (JD(U)) as a Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-driven agenda, Bihar Deputy Chief Minister Tejashwi Yadav on Friday laughed off the same, saying people should not be perturbed by such reports of split in the mahagathbandhan. Taking to his Twitter, Tejashwi wrote he cannot help but laugh at the 'disruptive sources' carrying out an agenda of the BJP. "Utpaati sutro ke naam se media ka ek varg BJP ka hai jo ek sootriya karyakram chala raha hai uspar zoro se hasi aa rahi hai. Bhoonja khao, mast raho," Tejashwi tweeted. <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en-gb"><p lang="hi" dir="ltr">&quot;??????? ???????&quot; ?? ??? ?? ?????? ?? ?? ???? ????? ?? ?? ?? ??????? ????????? ??? ??? ?? ???? ?????? ?? ???? ? ??? ??<br><br>&quot;????? ???,???? ???&quot;</p>&mdash; Tejashwi Yadav (@yadavtejashwi) <a href="https://twitter.com/yadavtejashwi/status/885772862262464512">14 July 2017</a></blockquote> <script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script> Earlier, the JD(U) also denied any rift within the allies, maintaining that the alliance is working successfully. With Bihar Deputy Chief minister Tejashwi Yadav charged in a corruption case and the rising demand of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) to demand the former's resignation, a great pressure has mounted upon Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar to take a definitive action. Earlier last week, the CBI registered a corruption case against Lalu Yadav, his wife Rabri Devi, son Tejashwi Yadav; former Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) Managing Director P.K. Goyal; and the wife of Lalu's confidante Prem Chand Gupta, Sujata on allegations of awarding the tender for development, maintenance and operation of hotels in Ranchi and Puri in 2006. The CBI later questioned Rabri Devi and Tejashwi Yadav. The case was registered on the allegations of awarding the tender for development, maintenance and operation of Hotels at Ranchi and Puri to a Private Company dealing with Hotels in the year 2006. The investigative agency also conducted searches at 12 locations across Patna, Delhi, Gurugram and other places. The RJD supremo, however, refuted the allegations against him and called it a political conspiracy hatched by the BJP. (ANI)
