New Delhi:

Bihar deputy chief minister Tejashwi Yadav on Wednesday rubbished all corruption charges levelled against him, saying that it is vendetta politics and Bharatiya Janata Party is at the helm of the affairs.

While talking to media after attending the cabinet meeting, Tejashwi said FIR against him is a political vendetta. He alleged that PM Modi and BJP president Amit Shah are conspiring against him from day one and they are trying to break Mahagathbandhan.

The deputy chief minister said all allegations are false in nature.

He questioned that how a kid at the age of 13-14 could do corruption as they have brought up cases of 2004. He said even he had not mustache at that time.

Tejashwi said that he had pledged zero tolerance to corruption when he took over as minister. He said not a single case of corruption has emerged in his three departments so far. 

Tejashwi vowed that they will give BJP a befitting reply and the Mahagathbandhna will continue in the state. Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar had convened a meeting of JD(U) MLAs and MPs during which the party decided to give more time to Deputy CM Tejashwi Yadav after CBI registered an FIR against him.
