New Delhi:

Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar may take final decision on removal of Deputy Chief Minister Tejashwi Yadav on Tuesday. Tejashwi is accused in the land-for-hotels scandal.

JD(U) leader Shyam Rajak had earlier hinted on removal of Tejashwi by saying that Nitish has never compromised on corruption.

In the crucial meeting of JD(U) which was held earlier, the party had given time to RJD to come clean on allegations of corruption.

“The RJD, which is showing arrogance of 80 MLAs, should no forget that it was reduced to 22 MLAs in 2010 state poll and in the elections in 2015 there number swelled due to the credible face of Nitish Kumar as head of the coalition,” state JD(U) chief spokesman Sanjay Singh told

Bihar's ruling JD(U) had asked Tejashwi Yadav, an accused in the land-for-hotels scandal, to "come out with facts in public against the accusations."

However, the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD)  had said, "there was no question" of Bihar Deputy Chief Minister Tejashwi Prasad Yadav's resignation in the wake of his name appearing in the CBI FIR in the land-for-hotel case.
