Patna: Reacting to Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) assertion that Deputy Chief Minister Tejaswi Yadav, in the wake of corruption charges against him, will not resign because the RJD won more seats (80) than the Janata Dal – U (71) in the 2015 Assembly elections, Nitish surrogates on Friday shot back at the RJD saying too much arrogance was not good and could result in the downfall of its leaders.

Talking to the reporters in Patna, JD-U leader Shyam Rajak reminded his former boss and RJD President Lalu Prasad Yadav that the same public that voted for his candidates and sent them to power under the leadership of Chief Minister Nitish Kumar would show them the door in a heartbeat if these leaders did not live up to the expectations of the public.

"Lalu Prasad Yadav has become old and he should speak to reflect his age instead of making nonsensical statements. He needs to change his mentality and speak like a seasoned statesman than someone who is a political neophyte," Rajak, once a trusted man of Yadav, said.

Calling Nitish Kumar a man of principles who had never compromised on the issue of corruption, Rajak said that Tejaswi Yadav should listen to the Chief Minister and do exactly he advised him to do which was to go to his supporters and convince them with solid proofs that he did not indulge in any corrupt practice.

Another mouthpiece of Nitish Kumar, party spokesperson Sanjay Singh, in a separate statement, advised Tejaswi Yadav to voluntarily resign from his post to save the Grand Alliance in Bihar.

"Both Nitish Kumar and Sharad Yadav had resigned from their respective posts after allegations were made against them. Tejaswi Yadav should also do so," Singh said.

JD-U National General Secretary K C Tyagi also advised the RJD not to act in an arrogant manner because they won 80 seats in the last Assembly polls.

"RJD won 80 seats only because of the good and clean image of Nitish Kumar. They must not forget that on their own, they had won only 23 seats in the past election resulting in the decimation of the party in the state. It was Nitish Kumar who revived the dying RJD in Bihar," Tyagi said.
