New Delhi [India], Aug 3 (ANI): After Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leader Tejashwi Yadav charged Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar with including "tainted" people in his cabinet, Minister of State for Rural Development Ram Kripal Yadav on Thursday said that the former needed to introspect on his activities first before pointing fingers at others. Speaking to ANI, Yadav said, "If someone claims it, doesn't make it the truth. People should look at themselves before pointing figures at others. It is all baseless." Former deputy chief minister Tejashwi Yadav on Wednesday asked Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar if he would ask Prime Minister Narendra Modi to conduct a probe against those who have been named in Panama Papers leak case. Speaking at a press conference here, Tejashwi said, "The people of Bihar demand an answer to all the questions that Nitish Kumar and Sushil Modi have accused us of. Also would Nitish ask Prime Minister Narendra Modi to conduct a probe against people who have been named in Panama Papers leak case? That day will never come..as all accused are together". Further lashing out at Nitish, Tejashwi said that Chief Minister's arrogance will destroy the present government very soon. "Nitish's arrogance will destroy the present government very soon and he will also fail in completing his tenure. If Nitish didn't want to work with us then why did he wait so long? And why he has ruined four years of Bihar?" He alleged that 75 percent of the ministers in government are tainted, but the Chief Minister has kept mum on the issue. (ANI)
