BJP leader Sushil Kumar Modi on Monday said Bihar Deputy Chief Minister and Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leader Tejashwi Prasad Yadav should either tender his resignation or get fired from his position.

"Nitish Kumar hardly spoken about Tejashwi Yadav and ongoing crisis in the ruling alliance. he only discussed issues related to the presidential polls on 17 July", a JD (U) legislator said. "We are not in favour of mid-term polls in Bihar". While Nitish is yet to demand resignation from Tejashwi, the JD (U) on July 10 issued a statement asking the deputy CM to give point-by-point clarification on the charges levelled by the CBI to "clear public mind".

According to a Congress leader, both Nitish and Lalu should sit together and resolve the issue as both of them had worked hard to stop the BJP from coming to power in Bihar.
