'Arrest me if you can': Tejashwi Yadav dares Nitish Kumar govt

Patna/IBNS: Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leader Tejashwi Yadav slammed the Nitish Kumar government and dared it to arrest him for protesting in support of farmers' demands to repeal the Centre's three contentious laws.

"The government of Bihar, led by a cowardly chief minister, has lodged an FIR against us for raising the voice of the farmers. If you have any real power, then arrest us. If you do not, I will surrender myself. I am ready to be hanged for farmers," the Leader of Opposition in Bihar tweeted.

An FIR has been filed against Tejashwi Yadav and 18 other leaders from various constituents of the Grand Alliance-led Opposition in Bihar for protesting without permission amid the coronavirus pandemic.

His party also criticised the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) government for using "false pretexts" to book Yadav for supporting the protesting farmers who have been camping along Delhi's borders in harsh cold for 10 days now.

"The Bihar government has shown its two-faced character by using false and shallow pretexts to book Tejashwi Yadav for standing with the farmers and protesting in their support. For farmers, we are not scared of even a thousand such FIRs," the party proclaimed.
