Chirag further said that the ball is now in Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar's court and he has to take a firm decision. It has been a tradition of the Lalu family.

"It was a routine meeting of a cabinet colleague with the CM over some government matters and not a political one". He said, the JD (U) would never stand for corruption.

Talking to the reporters, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Prem Kumar expressed confidence in NDA candidate and former Governor of Bihar Ram Nath Kovind saying not only the entire NDA was behind Kovind, numerous non-NDA leaders also voted for Mr. Kovind.

Accompanied by most RJD ministers to the state Secretariat for the scheduled Cabinet meeting, Tejashwi went to the CM's chamber with elder brother and Health Minister Tej Pratap Yadav.

The press briefing by the Cabinet Coordination Department Secretary Brajesh Mehrotra too was shifted to the Public Relations Department office some distance away instead of the secretariat as in the past. It has been learned that JD (U) had demanded Tejashwi to explain the alleged acquisition of massive wealth. In recent months, however, Nitish Kumar has backed PM Modi on several policies and he broke last month with an 18-party bloc of the opposition to support the BJP's candidate for President of India. "Tejashwi should tell people about his sources of income and how he acquired these properties", Modi told reporters on the sidelines of his weekly 'Janata Darbar'.

By contrast, former MP Shivanand Tiwary, who is now close to the RJD, hit back at the JD (U), asking (CM) Kumar to first give a clarification on whether he has any truck with the BJP, given his silence on the BJP's growing attacks on secular forces.
