Patna, February 12: After winning the vote of trust in Bihar assembly, Chief Minister Nitish Kumar alleged that RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav and the leaders of Mahagathbandhan, while staying in the government, were earning money in illegal manners. “I was not against anyone and had given respect to them but I was in pain when I learnt that they were earning money. Even though the BJP, which was with us, had never done any kind of mischief, they (RJD) kept all leaders at one place and offered lakhs of rupees to move legislators here and there. Now, I will initiate investigation about how they could obtain money,” Nitish Kumar said while addressing the assembly after sailing through the the floor test.
