Lalu Prasad’s home was raided on Friday to which he said that it is done by BJP and his 27-year-old son, Tejashwi Yadav, who is the Deputy Chief Minister of the state, has been accused of corruption by the CBI along with him. The party decided that he will not quit office. Nitish Kumar, who is the Chief Minister of the state has not yet commented on this raid and is expected to speak a word about this and according to the sources he is expected to say that “the comforts of power cannot determine principles”.

By scheduling his party session for tomorrow, Nitish Kumar has arranged cover to skip a meeting of 17 opposition parties in Delhi that will be chaired by Congress leader Sonia Gandhi, whose party is the third and most junior member of the Bihar government. In April Nitish Kumar proposed an anti-BJP front which he broke last month to announce that he would support BJP’s choice for the Presidential candidate instead of the opposition’s candidate.
