Railway hotel scam: ED asks Tejashwi Yadav to appear on 13 November

Tejashwi Yadav at a press conference in Patna

As if to turn the accusation of liquor consumption and patronage on its head, the Nitish Kumar's party released a photo of the former Deputy Chief Minister and Lalu Prasad's son Tejashwi Yadav with female fan and a beer bottle.

Tejashwi Yadav, son of RJD leader Lalu Prasad, has been isuued summons by the ED to appear before it on November 13 in connection with alleged corruption in the award of contract to maintain two IRCTC hotels in 2006 when his father was the railway minister.

The Enforcement Directorate has issued a summon to Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief Lalu Prashad Yadav's son and former Bihar deputy chief minister Tejashwi Yadav to appear before it on November 13 in connection with the railway hotel tender case.

Tejashwi Yadav on Thursday challenged Nitish Kumar's statement that he did not know Rakesh Singh's background, saying the latter was Block President of JD-U in Bhojpur district and was invited to meet Nitish Kumar when he took a selfie with the Chief Minister. In July, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) had registered an FIR and conducted multiple searches on the properties of Lalu Prasad, who is also a former Bihar chief minister, and others. "Truth will then come out in public", he said.

"Nitish should tell why did he name two trains as Archana Express and Upasana Express?"

"I was expecting a reply from Nitish Kumar camp, but it seems that the entire JD (U) has stooped too low by releasing my photograph with a girl who I don't know There are so many pictures of other leaders taking selfies with girls everywhere".

As for his photograph with a young woman, he said it was an old one when he was playing the Indian Premier League cricket.

"It is normal for a girl to take a selfie with a cricketer".

Within an hour of JD-U releasing the controversial photo, Tejashwi reacted slamming Nitish Kumar of being the mastermind behind the act of the JD-U spokespersons. "This is not the character of RJD", said, Shakti Singh Yadav while displaying the photo to the press.
