Vastavam web: Ramping up pressure on the RJD over the corruption case involving Bihar Deputy Chief Minister Tejashwi Yadav, the JD(U) today said Chief Minister Nitish Kumar will never compromise on the issue of corruption.”Nitish Kumar’s stand on corruption is well known. He will never compromise on it,” JD(U) spokesperson K C Tyagi said. Tyagi also insisted that he never sought Congress chief Sonia Gandhi’s intervention to defuse the crisis in the grand alliance and only welcomed such an suggestion reportedly made by a Congress leader in Bihar.
Sonia and Congress deputy and her son Rahul Gandhi had spoken to Kumar following his party’s announcement of its support to the opposition’s vice presidential candidate.”The grand alliance in Bihar is intact. It is based on principles. The people of Bihar had rejected a coalition which wanted to break the ‘Ganga Jamuni tehzeeb’ (syncretic culture) of Bihar,” Congress chief spokesperson Randeep Surjewala told reporters.
