Patna: Talking to the reporters after casting his ballot for the next President of India, Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leader and Deputy Chief Minister Tejaswi Yadav on Monday blamed both the media and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Sushil Kumar Modi for growing chant for his resignation following corruption charges leveled by the CBI against him.

"This is all a creation of a section of media that has treated my family and I in a very negative manner. There is no truth in the corruption allegations against me but the media continues to make it look like a scandal," Yadav, the youngest son of Lalu Prasad Yadav and Rabri Devi, said.

The Deputy Chief Minister, who stayed out of a public appearance with Nitish Kumar on Sunday after the Janata Dal – U leader refused to come out in his defense thus adding fuel to the rumor that his role in the Grand Alliance was likely coming to an end, also blamed Modi for his current political and ethical woes saying the BJP leader was unemployed and had way too much time on his hand to spew lies and give birth to propaganda.

"Sushil Modi has a history of engaging in negative politics. He has a habit of maligning his opponents for no reason," he said.

On the Presidential election, the RJD leader, also seen as the real successor of the Lalu dynasty, said that hundred percent of the RJD and Congress vote had gone to Opposition candidate Meira Kumar.

"The NDA is concerned about the Presidential poll results and that is why it keeps raising the issue of cross-voting. Let it come out and see who wins and who loses," Yadav said.
