Bihar Deputy Chief Minister Tejashwi Prasad Yadav launched an aggressive attack on the Bharatiya Janata Party on Thursday, saying that far from being afraid of investigative agencies, he was willing to allow them to set up offices in his home if it brought “shanti” (peace). ).

The RJD leader claimed that the central government was continually having the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) work against them at his behest, but “nothing has been found to date.”

“The CBI should open an office in our own home. I will give them space myself,” Yadav said.

The RJD leader made the tongue-in-cheek reference to accusations of central agency misuse against BJP political opponents while chatting with reporters at the home of his mother and former Prime Minister Rabri Devi.

In a short time I experienced being a minister and leader of the opposition, Yadav said.

“Since then, I have matured, having been leader of the opposition and running the party’s campaign in the last assembly elections when my father was not available. Now I have all kinds of experience. Therefore, the development work will be done faster,” said the youngest son of the RJD supremo, Lalu Prasad.
