Asserting that Lalu Prasad's son and Deputy Chief Minister Tejashwi Yadav needs to come clean with regards to a corruption case filed by the Central Bureau of Investigation, the Janata Dal (United) on Wednesday said that the party wouldn't compromise with its principles and a decision would be taken accordingly.

"We are in a mahagathbandhan, but to maintain the coalition, the responsibility falls on everyone. Hence, he needs to come out clean on the FIR filed by the CBI. We cannot sit silently and the JDU will cannot comprise its principles. We will take our decision accordingly," JD(U) leader Ajay Alok told ANI.

The 'mahagathbandhan' of the Rashtriya Janata Dal and the JD(U) is going through rough waters after the CBI filed corruption charges against Tejashwi Yadav in hotel tender case. There has been an increasing demand over his resignation.

In lieu of this, Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar had called the national and state lawmakers of his party for a meeting in Patna on Tuesday.

After the meeting, sources said that the party decided to give more time to Tejashwi Yadav.

The RJD supremo, however, refuted the allegations against him and called it a political conspiracy hatched by the BJP.
