But The question now is whether the Bihar CM would react to the situation as one of the persons named in the FIR is none other than “Tejaswi Yadav” (Lalu’s son), a minister in Nitish Kumar’s cabinet. Further,To a question about whether his party will boycott the midnight GST launch event in the Parliament if other opposition parties do so… But the larger question is: will these raids rupture ties between Nitish and L.p.yadav leading up to the disintegration of the Bihar Mahagathbandhan, A grand alliance).
Furthermore, Bihar CM, Nitish kr. was readying to snap ties with RJD founder and Chief L.P. Yadav in what could mark the premature end of one of the most unlikely — and successful — political alliances in the country, As .

A Press Release by CBI, India, New Delhi, On 07.07.2017
The Central Bureau of Investigation has registered a case u/s 120 B r/w 420 of IPC and Section 13(2) r/w 13(1)(d) of PC Act, 1988 against the then Railway Minister; his wife; his son; a private person based at New Delhi; two Directors of a private Hotel Ltd. Company; a private Projects/Marketing company based at Delhi; the then MD, IRCTC and unknown others on the allegations of awarding the tender for development, maintenance and operation of BNR Hotels at Ranchi and Puri to said private Hotel Ltd. Company in the year 2006.
This case has been registered consequent to a Preliminary Enquiry which prima facie revealed that then Railway Minister, had allegedly derived undue advantage by abuse of his official position & by way of sale of about 3 acres of land at Patna by the owners of said private Hotel Ltd Company to another private marketing company having said private person( wife of his close associate), as its Director, at a price which was less than the prevalent circle rate. It was also alleged that this favour was returned to the company by award of long term lease for the BNR hotels at Ranchi and Puri by manipulating the tender process..
It was further alleged that as per available records, the entire shareholding of said private marketing company was transferred to wife of then Railway Minister and his son between 2010-14, for a consideration of approx Rs.64 lakh, when this company owned land worth around Rs.32.5 crore( as per circle rate) and around Rs.94 crore (as per the market rate).
Further investigation is continuing…… Source : CBI, India.
The CBI says Lalu allegedly acquired three acres of land in Patna worth Rs 32 crores for “a mere Rs 54 lakhs. “Lalu and the others accused have been charged under the Prevention of Corruption Act 1988.
Significantly, The political muck surrounding the L.P.Yadav and his family after a series of raids by the ED (Enforcement Directorate) & the I-T Department on cases, including money laundering, has been a matter of concern for Nitish Kumar.
More specifically, Highlighting the fact that Nitish had supported Cashless economy, Demonetisation, surgical strikes and, most recently, the nomination of Ram Nath Kovind as a presidential candidate, Sushil Modi has, of late, maintained that. Now we can say that, “Nitish was very uncomfortable in this alliance. He cannot run the government with people like Lalu and his team.” Same statement on my tweet 06:37PM, Today.
Despite all of this, Should Nitish breakaway finally, he will have to join hands with the BJP?, the erstwhile partner he broke away from in 2013 after it announced Narendra Modi as its PM candidate…. Let us see…
