When BJP opened its front on Kartikeya Singh, the media also uprooted the dead
The BJP was already an attacker on Kartikeya Singh, who joined the Nitish cabinet. The BJP became even more aggressive when Nitish Kumar made RJD MLC Kartikeya Singh the Law Minister. The old criminal history of Kartikeya Singh was also being searched by the media. Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, facing an all-out attack for making Kartikey Singh a minister, finally handed over the charge of sugarcane department to him by taking the law ministry from him. But the surprising thing was that Chief Minister Nitish Kumar did not even ask for his resignation despite knowing the history of Kartikeya Singh.
Nitish Kumar is under pressure from Lalu Yadav
Nitish Kumar, who has made his mark regarding the minister Kartikeya Singh case, is working under the pressure of RJD supremo Lalu Prasad Yadav these days. This is to say of former BJP MLA and state spokesperson Prem Ranjan Patel. He said that it is not the nature of minister Nitish Kumar that any tainted person should come in his cabinet and he should not accept his resignation. Giving an example, Prem Ranjan Patel said that earlier he had taken resignation from Jitan Ram Manjhi and Mevalal Chaudhary, who was made Education Minister in 2020, within just 3 days. But Nitish Kumar did not dare in the Mahagathbandhan government to demand the resignation of the tainted Kartikeya Singh, who was made a minister from the RJD quota under Lalu Prasad Yadav and Tejashwi Yadav. Keep in mind that on Wednesday afternoon, Nitish Kumar snatched the Law Ministry from Kartikeya Kumar Singh and handed over the Industries Ministry. However, by the end of the night, Kartikeya Singh presented his resignation to Nitish Kumar. Accepting this, the Chief Minister sent his recommendation to Governor Fagu Chauhan.
RJD gave a message, Nitish’s arbitrariness will not work: BJP
BJP state spokesperson Prem Ranjan Patel says that he has worked with Nitish Kumar for years. But, had never seen Nitish Kumar so helpless before today. He said that Nitish Kumar did not have the courage to sack Kartikeya Singh, who was made a minister from Lalu Prasad’s party, or take his resignation. Because despite Kartikeya Singh being tainted, Nitish Kumar included him in his cabinet at the behest of Lalu Prasad Yadav.

Although Nitish Kumar took back the law ministry from Kartikeya Singh and made him a minister in the sugarcane department to save his reputation, Lalu Prasad Yadav and Tejashwi Yadav along with RJD did not like this decision of Nitish. Therefore, after changing the department, Karthikeya Singh sent his resignation to the Chief Minister only at the behest of angry Lalu Yadav. Former BJP MLA Prem Ranjan Patel says that by getting Karthikeya Singh to resign, Lalu Prasad Yadav and RJD have given a clear message to the minister that this time Nitish Kumar’s arbitrariness will not work in the government of Mahagathbandhan. The BJP spokesperson said that the Mahagathbandhan government was not even a month old, but the rift that had arisen between RJD and JDU over Kartikeya Singh has now started turning into a gulf.

Kartikeya Singh furious at BJP after resignation
After resigning from the Nitish cabinet, Kartikeya Singh lashed out at the BJP. He said in his clarification that making me a minister was not being digested by the people of BJP. BJP was thinking how a Bhumihar became a minister, so a media trial was conducted accusing me. He said that his father was a freedom fighter and his father had been a high school teacher. Apart from this, he himself has worked as a teacher for the last 28 years. On the criminal case, he said that before 2015, there was no case against me. At present, the case in which he has been sued is still under investigation in the court. He said that I have full faith in the court, I will definitely get justice.
Regarding the relationship with former MLA Anant Singh, he said that Anant Singh has been an MLA from Mokama for 17 years and his brother has also been an MLA and a minister and I have a political relationship with him. He also said that he was not upset with the department being changed. Rather, my party, leader and my image were being tarnished by the allegations being leveled against him, so I have resigned in the interest of the party. He said that after being acquitted from the court, I will accept the responsibility given by the party.

Tejashwi in a mess like Akhilesh?
People who understand the politics of Bihar say that at present the condition of Tejashwi Yadav in Bihar is similar to that of Akhilesh Yadav of Uttar Pradesh. Akhilesh Yadav was the Chief Minister in UP between 2012-2017, but Akhilesh was helpless in front of leaders like father Mulayam Singh Yadav, uncle Shivpal Singh Yadav, Azam Khan. Akhilesh was not able to take decisions openly even after wanting to. Akhilesh wanted to get out of the shadow of father Mulayam Singh Yadav but he was able to do something while being the Chief Minister. In the same way, Tejashwi Yadav is trying to get out of the shadow of his father Lalu Yadav in Bihar. He had given a glimpse of this by making his father disappear from the posters in the 2020 Bihar assembly elections. Sources reveal that Tejashwi Yadav is trying to make a clean image of himself and his party, but father Lalu Prasad Yadav is not in favor of putting his special people on the sidelines. It is being said that in the government of Nitish Kumar and Tejashwi Yadav, there are many such faces from the RJD quota who have got a place in the cabinet after Lalu Prasad Yadav’s veto. Sources reveal that even faces like Kartikeya Singh became ministers from the votes of Lalu Yadav.
