“The MLA registered his complaint on February 11. We have registered a case under relevant sections of the IPC and launched an investigation,” Prasad said.
The new Kumar-led NDA government won the trust vote on Monday. Three MLAs of the RJD, the largest constituent of the Mahagathbandhan, defected to the ruling coalition ahead of the confidence vote.
However, the deputy SP said the JD(U) MLA had accused a party colleague of offering him a princely sum, or settling for a cabinet post in the new government, for helping the opposition group restore the tables in the BJP-led coalition.
“The complainant has also accused another JD(U) MLA of trying to kidnap two other party legislators with the intention of preventing them from participating in the trust vote. All aspects of the case are being looked into,” Prasad added.
