Patna: Bihar Water Resources Minister and a close aide of Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, senior Janata Dal – U leader Lallan Singh, at a press conference in Patna on Monday, admonished Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) President Lalu Prasad Yadav to 'remain within his limit' or else 'things could backfire on him'.

Reacting to Yadav's harsh criticism of Nitish Kumar during his rally in Bhagalpur where he did not hold back anything, Singh advised Lalu Prasad Yadav and his son and former Deputy Chief Minister Tejaswi Yadav not to cross the proverbial 'Laxman Rekha' when talking about Nitish Kumar or else it could badly backfire on him.

"Mr. Yadav needs to stop accusing Nitish Kumar of being involved in the Srijan scam. If he has any proof against the Chief Minister what is stopping him from making them available to the CBI? The answer is simple; he has no evidence against Nitish Kumar," the minister said.

On Yadav's insistence that he has been framed by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in various land deals, Singh said that if he was as innocent as he claimed, he should move High Court or the Supreme Court and stop trying to change the focus from himself to other leaders.

Advising the RJD chief to mind his language, the JD-U leader said such low-level of talks did not suit a leader of Yadav's stature.

"We can give him a befitting reply in his own language but our culture does not allow us to do so. However, if he crosses the limit, he better be ready to face the consequences," Singh said.

Energy Minister Bijendra Prasad Yadav, when asked why the JD-U chose to join hands with the RJD in 2015 when they knew full well that Lalu Prasad Yadav was a convicted felon in the fodder scam, said that his two children – Tej Pratap Yadav and Tejaswi Yadav were not facing any corruption charges and because the RJD chief himself could not be part of the Grand Alliance government, going along with the RJD did not appear to be a problem.

Spokespersons Sanjay Singh and Neeraj Kumar were also present at the press conference.
