Patna: Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leader and Deputy Chief Minister of Bihar Tejaswi Yadav on Wednesday issued a warning to his own party senior leader Raghuvansh Prasad Singh after Singh blamed Chief Minister Nitish Kumar for the historical defeat of the Samajwadi Party in Uttar Pradesh Assembly polls saying if he continued to hurt the Grand Alliance in Bihar by his silly rhetoric then he would be forced to initiate a move to discipline him under the RJD rules and bylaws.

Seen as a move to mollify Janata Dal – U leader Nitish Kumar who remains an integral part of the Mahagathbandhan in Bihar, the Deputy Chief Minister, who also happens to be the younger son of RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav, said that Singh's comments were not helping the alliance and instead, were designed to hurt it.

As reported, Singh, just hours after poll results in UP were announced, accused Bihar Chief Minister for the drubbing saying had he joined the Samajwadi Party (SP)-Congress-RJD alliance in the neighboring state, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) would not have scored the victory that it did by winning 324 seats out of a total of 403. He further said that Kumar's support to Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the issue of demonetization also hurt the prospect of the SP-led alliance in UP. However, on Tuesday, he doubled down on his attack on the Chief Minister saying he was a dedicated party soldier and if ordered by the party chief, he would teach him a valuable lesson (गर्दा झाड़ देंगे).

"He needs to watch his words and not make statements that are damaging to this Grand Alliance. However, if he continued to do so, I will initiate disciplinary action against him," the Deputy Chief Minister said.

Tejaswi Yadav's mother and former Chief Minister of Bihar Rabri Devi also slammed her own party leader and RJD Vice President for his recent comments in the wake of UP elections saying his statements were stupid and hurtful to the Grand Alliance in Bihar.

"The alliance remains strong in Bihar. Raghuvansh Babu should refrain from making stupid comments. Even the JD-U leaders should avoid making any statement that is damaging to the Mahagathbandhan," she said before moving on to blame the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) for the internal strife within the Grand Alliance saying an out-of-power BJP was always looking for ways to cause rift in the RJD-JDU-Congress coalition in Bihar.
