The Bihar Assembly was stunned into silence on Tuesday as BJP legislators disrupted proceedings and demanded the resignation of Deputy Chief Minister Tejashwi Yadav. Accusing him of corruption, BJP legislators created an uproar in the House and demanded that Tejashwi Yadav step down from his post.
The speaker of the assembly, Vijay Kumar Chaudhary, tried to bring order to the proceedings but was unable to do so. He called for the immediate suspension of the BJP legislators, but this only escalated the situation as they began shouting slogans. After a few minutes of chaos, the speaker adjourned the proceedings.
The BJP’s demands stem from allegations of corruption against Tejashwi Yadav. He is accused of receiving kickbacks from government contracts, and the BJP legislators argue that this is a violation of the Bihar Government’s code of conduct.
In response to the BJP’s demands, Tejashwi Yadav has maintained his innocence and insisted that he will not resign. He has accused the BJP of attempting to destabilize the government by creating a crisis. The Bihar Chief Minister, Nitish Kumar, has also refused to take any action against Tejashwi Yadav, stating that the allegations against him are baseless.
The situation in Bihar has become increasingly tense as the BJP and the ruling government have been unable to come to an agreement. The BJP has vowed to continue its protests and disruption of the Assembly until Tejashwi Yadav steps down from his post. It remains to be seen how the situation will be resolved, but one thing is certain: the politics of Bihar are likely to remain in a state of flux in the coming weeks.
