In the RJD’s legislature party meeting, Tejashwi’s work as its leader in the assembly was praised, senior minister Abdul Bari Siddiqui told reporters after the meeting.
The finance minister in Nitish Kumar’s Grand Alliance government, however, said, Yadav’s resignation was not discussed at the meeting held at the 10 Circular Road residence of former chief minister Rabri Devi.
