Tejashwi while speaking at the meeting where party chief Lalu Prasad was elected the national president of the party for the 10th time lashed out at Chief Minister Nitish Kumar calling him "Cheat Minister". He also dared Nitish maintaining that he may be a young boy but has blood of his father and would continue to fight for the poor and downtrodden.

"Nitish Kumar is not the chief minister but cheat minister. He has betrayed the mandate of the people of Bihar.

Speaking further, Tejashwi said that RJD under him would stick to old politics of lathi (stick) which was used by his father Lalu Prasad and will also use laptops to counter the opposition.

Lalu, who also spoke at the national council said that Nitish was trying to scare the upper caste voters by saying that Bihar has returned to the era of 90s.

"Nitish wants to woo the upper caste voters but I don't think that the upper caste voters are so timid that they will listen to him", said Lalu Prasad, RJD chief.
