The development has strengthened speculation that the crisis between the Nitish Kumar's party and the Lalu Yadav's Rashtriya Janata Dal has further deepened over allegations of corruption against the RJD chief and his family.
Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Monday instructed officials to prepare a plan for management of sewage water and said it can be used in irrigation to augment agriculture. The meeting also discussed the Metro project for Patna, installing energy efficient street light and arrangements for removal of garbage, it said. Sources within the ruling Janata Dal-United say CM Nitish is likely to take a big decision on Tuesday (July 18).
In response to Lalu's earlier remark of an FIR being insufficient to resign, Tyagi said an FIR is lodged only on the basis of thorough preliminary investigation.
With regards to reports of an apparent rift in the RJD-JD (U) "mahagathbandhan" or grand alliance, Tyagi re-iterated Lalu's stance on it, and said nothing will be done to harm their "baby".
Nitish's JD (U) has given enough hints that the CM's image is more important to it than sticking to power.
They said a formula which is likely to be worked out between the two parties is that Lalu Yadav will ask all RJD ministers to resign and give outside support to the JD (U) and the Congress to save the alliance.More news: Artificial Sweeteners Do Not Help You Lose Weight
