Following BS Yeddyurappa’s resignation as the Karnataka Chief Minister without facing the floor test in the state Assembly, Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leader Tejashwi Yadav on Saturday said truth can never be defeated and it will always defeat “a lie or liar”.

In a tweet, former Bihar Deputy Chief Minister said, “Truth can never be defeated! Truth will always defeat a lie or liar!,”.

On Friday, Leader of Opposition in Bihar Assembly Tejashwi Yadav, led a delegation of RJD, Congress, CPI-ML and HAM leaders and met Bihar Governor Satya Pal Malik to stake claim to form the government in the state on the lines of Karnataka, where the single-largest party, the BJP, was invited to form the government, even though it fell short of a majority in the recently-concluded Assembly polls.
