Nitish Kumar Unleashed Ghosts in My Bungalow: Tej Pratap Yadav
“The ghosts were haunting me,” said Tej Pratap Yadav, former Bihar health minister.
Former Bihar health minister Tej Pratap Yadav has vacated the government bungalow allotted to him saying CM Nitish Kumar had unleashed ghosts in it, reported NDTV.
Yadav, who is the elder son of Rashtriya janata Dal (RJD) chief Lalu Prasad, was allotted the bungalow at 3 Deshratna Marg before the Janata Dal United (JD(U))-RJD-Congress alliance collapsed in the state. Chief Minister Nitish Kumar later formed the government in alliance with the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).
The JD(U) slammed Yadav’s comments calling it a publicity gimmick. It also said that Yadav is suffering from acute attention deficiency and is trying to compete with his younger brother Tejaswi who is hogging the limelight, reported NDTV.
Reportedly, some former RJD ministers had moved the Patna High Court against the state government's order that asked them to move out in October last year. The court stayed the government's order, after which the government had asked the occupants to pay rent at market rates. Those who have stayed put are yet to comply with the order.
