Patna: In yet another sign of a major political turmoil in Bihar with murmurs of an impending split in the so-called Grand Alliance getting louder by the day, organizers of the World Youth Skill Development Day at Gyan Bhawan in Patna on Saturday removed the nameplate of Deputy Chief Minister Tejaswi Yadav after he failed to show up at the event where he was listed as a 'distinguished guest' to represent the youths of Bihar.

As Chief Minister Nitish Kumar arrived at the function to take his seat, those on the dais looked towards the door in anticipation of the scheduled arrival of Deputy Chief Minister and Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leader Tejaswi Yadav except it never happened.

With the Chief Minister getting ready to inaugurate the event, the organizers, realizing Yadav was not going to show up, first covered nameplate bearing his name and just minutes later, removed it entirely from the table.

Ignoring the obvious optic disaster that unfortunately did not go unnoticed by the media-men, the Chief Minister went on with his speech praising his own Labor Resource Department for helping his attain his goal of 'Seven Resolves' a reality.

"In my Seven Resolves, developing skills among our youths occupies a very important place. Since its announcement last year, we have made tremendous progress in this area. With programs like Student Credit Card that has so far impacted more than 4 lakh students since its implementation a year ago and other schemes introduced by me showing very encouraging results, I am pleased to say that I feel the future of our students and youths are quite bright in Bihar," he said.

On the occasion, Kumar handed out awards to a number of students and District Magistrates for making the Skill Development program a great success.
