Patna (Bihar) [India], July 27 (ANI): Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) supremo Lalu Prasad Yadav's son and former deputy chief minister Tejashwi Yadav on Thursday said that political vendetta against him exposed the Opposition's viciousness. His comments came after JD-U leader Nitish Kumar, who resigned as Bihar Chief Minister on Wednesday, again took oath as Bihar Chief Minister on Thursday with BJP leader Sushil Kumar Modi taking oath as Deputy Chief Minister. Tejashwi, in a series of tweets, said, "I delivered manifolds than what was expected of me. My performance perturbed our ally & BJP. Vendetta against me exposes their viciousness." <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">I delivered manifolds than wat was expected of me.

However, Tejashwi put onus on Nitish and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) for the latest political development in the state. He said, "Much to their dismay, they were unable to point a single lacuna in my performance. So, they resorted to low level vindictive & opportunistic politics. Whenever there is change in a system, however unjust, those at vantage point were bound to get irked. Repercussions were expected & imminent." <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Much to their dismay,they wer unable to point a single lacuna in my performance.So resorted to low level vindictive & opportunistic politics</p>&mdash; Tejaswi yadav (@YadavTejaswi) <a href="https://twitter.com/YadavTejaswi/status/890446932874846208">July 27, 2017</a></blockquote> <script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script> He further added: "Vicious greed for power of opportunism will spell its own doom.

Talking to ANI, BJP leader Nitin Naveen said, "Lalu Yadav is in discomfort. Love for his son led to heavy loss for him. Because of his son, he compromised with interests of the party and sacrificed 'mahagathbandhan'." Meanwhile, BJP state president Nityanand Rai said, "Now, Bihar will go on the path of development. We are very happy with Nitish Kumar's decision." (ANI)
