Patna: Bihar Deputy Chief Minister Tejashwi Yadav on Wednesday accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP president Amit Shah of conspiring against him.

The RJD leader is under investigation by the CBI for amassing benami properties in 2004.

“I didn’t have moustache in 2004. How can a 13 to 14-year-old kid can do all this.” he told the media after attending a state cabinet meeting.

He said that earlier the BJP was afraid of his father Lalu Prasad Yadav and targeted him. "Now they are targeting me."

Tejashwi ruled out any possibility of resignation saying there is not a single allegation against him during his stint as a minister.

"We have worked for the people of the state. My party worked for the weaker and deprived section of society. No one can raise fingers on me as a road construction minister. So why should I resign?” he asked.

He called CBI raids and FIR against him as ‘politically motivated’ and said he would continue to fight against anti-state forces.

Tejashwi also announced that his party would go go to the Janata ki Adalat (people's court) and expose the saffron party.

“They (BJP) are conspiring to break the alliance. But they will not succeed. We will root out BJP not only from state but from the country. Mahagathbandhan will continue to serve people of the state. Our alliance is intact,” he said.
