Tejashwi named in a corruption case by the CBI.

The Janata Dal (United) on Saturday said that deputy chief minister Tejashwi Yadav should have shown the basic courtesy. After that, sources said, the Congress will look at whether Tejashwi Yadav can be purged by Nitish Kumar or whether "coalition dharma" requires a voluntary opt-out by the young politician.

Buoyed by the support and casting of votes by 132 BJP-led NDA and JD (U) MLAs in favour of their choice presidential candidate Ram Nath Kovind, there was a renewed demand on Monday for deputy CM Tejashwi Prasad Yadav's resignation.

"Nitish Kumar's support to NDA nominee holds a lot of significance for which we thank him", Sushil said claiming, along with NDA and JD (U) MLAs, four Independents have also voted for Kovind.

"Nitish is the leader of Mahagathbandhan, no one else".

Modi, who is the state BJP Parliamentary Party chief, urged Nitish Kumar to "stand firm on his ground (in seeking resignation of Tejashwi)".

Leaders of both the alliance partners are of the view that Nitish and Lalu should sit, talk and resolve issues rather than allowing the Opposition an easy opportunity to take advantage of their differences.

RJD has chose to remain united not only for the presidential elections but also for the future so that the country doesn't slip into the hands of communal forces.

"Coalitions may see tensions and pressures but everything is all right in the Grand Alliance", said Janata Dal-United spokesperson Neeraj Kumar.

Amid the deepening crisis in the grrand alliance government in Bihar RJD Chief Lalu Prasad made a veiled attack on Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and said those who are confused always get betrayed.

Rashtriya Janata Dal leader and former union minister Ragunath Jha said, "Lalu and Nitish Kumar should sit together, talk to each other to end the crisis". The statement came amid the speculation that Nitish Kumar might take some strong decisions regarding the grand alliance in the state after the Presidential election that is now going on.
