The BJP on Wednesday slammed Nitish Kumar for giving a four-day deadline to Deputy Chief Minister Tejaswi Yadav to prove his innocence in the corruption case and said the Bihar Chief Minister was 'doing drama' to keep himself safe.

"Nitish-ji is Nautankibaaz (drama king). He is playing politics very smartly. He has given time to RJD just to keep himself safe. Everything is clear after the CBI raid and FIR. Nitish is playing a gimmick and the people of Bihar know this game. He should not do this drama," BJP leader Gopla Narayan Singh told ANI.

Echoing the same, BJP leader Ashwani Chaubey said Nitish is trying to give clean chit to Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief Lalu Prasad Yadav and his family.

"This is laughable. They are doing drama and nothing else. The people are trying to give clean chit to Lalu Prasad and his family. Lalu has defamed Bihar and politics. There is no place for such corrupt politicians. Nitish should oust such corrupt leaders. They are trying to deceive the people by doing this drama," he told ANI.

Nitish Kumar-led Janata Dal (United) yesterday gave four days to RJD to decide on the resignation of Tejaswi Yadav, who has been facing allegations of corruption in connection with a land-for-hotels case.The JD (U), however, did not ask for the resignation of Tejaswi and asked him to "come out with facts in public against the accusations" within four days.

Chairing a crucial meeting of JD(U) legislators, ex- legislators, office bearers and district chiefs, Nitish Kumar was quoted as saying that his party knows how to follow "gatbandhan dharma" (coalition dharma) and also making "political sacrifices"."Party knows how to follow gatbandhan dharma...JD(U) has a record of facing political challenges by making political sacrifices," JD(U) spokesman Neeraj Kumar told reporters while briefing about the meeting.

The RJD, however, ruled out the  resignation of Tejaswi and said his work as Deputy Chief Minister was being appreciated by the people.
