Patna: Tejaswi Yadav, leader of the Opposition in Bihar Assembly, during a press conference in Patna on Tuesday, said that while the Nitish administration had failed to release his annual report card, his party would soon release a 'charge sheet' against the NDA government that would expose the true face of the Chief Minister.

The heir-apparent of the party, holding the fort in the absence of his father Lalu Prasad Yadav who has been confined to the four walls of a prison following his multiple convictions in cases related to fodder scam, said that the RJD, on Wednesday, would release a list of Nitish Kumar's failures and how they were having impact on the general public – the backwards and Dalits, in particular.

Speaking on the concluding day of the Budget Session of the state Assembly, Yadav said that the Chief Minister failed to explain how he planned to remove poverty and starvation from Bihar and how he planned to carry out schemes that would help progress everyone and not just a handful of groups.

"We intend to ask him to give accounts for the last eight months. So far, he has said nothing about development that has taken since he walked out of the Grand Alliance and joined hands with the saffron party that is responsible for the recent spate in communal violence across the state," the former Deputy Chief Minister said.

Yadav, who remains under investigation by the CBI and the Enforcement Directorate (ED) office in a number of corruption cases involving acquisition of properties without any credible source of income, also lashed out at the Center for abusing Income Tax, CBI and the ED to settle scores with political adversaries.

"The Modi government is breaking a number of laws to exact revenge from those who do not agree with its divisive politics. The Central government is also extremely anti-dalit and anti-adivasis and is behind the recent amendments in the SC/ST Act by the Supreme Court of India," Yadav, casting aspersion at the integrity of the apex court, said.
