Three days after resigning from his post as the Convener of the RJD's (Rashtriya Janata Dal) student wing, former health minister of Bihar Tej Pratap Yadav has threatened to form a new party that goes by the name of his parents Lalu Prasad Yadav and Rabri Dev. As per sources, elder son of party president Lalu Prasad, Tej Pratap Yadav is set to form a party named 'Lalu Rabri Morcha'.
On Thursday, he resigned as the 'sanrakshak' (mentor) of the party's students wing. Taking to Twitter, he made the announcement of his resignation.
"I am resigning from the post of Chhatra Rashtriya Janata Dal Sanrakshak. Those who think I am ignorant are ignorant themselves. I am well aware of who is worth what," he tweeted.
The sudden development comes as a major embarrassment to the party which has been beset by speculations of fierce rivalry between Tej Pratap and his younger brother Tejashwi Yadav. Tejashwi has been declared as the political heir apparent of the RJD supremo.
Earlier sources had informed Republic TV that Tej Pratap Yadav, might contest independently from the Saran constituency against his Father-in-law Chandrika Rai, who is a sitting RJD MLA.
On Saturday, Tej Pratap Yadav met his supports outside his residence, following which he informed the media that he has requested Tejashwi Yadav to provide a ticket to Chandraprakash from Jahanabad and Angesh Singh from Sheohar.
"People from all across Bihar have gathered here. Even from Sheohar. Surrendra Ji has lost 3 times. Now, the one who talks about citizen's interest will get voted. I am here to listen to their grief. Yesterday I met Tejashwi ji after his press briefing. I proposed the same to him. He said we will see, we will do something but he was indecisive. He ultimately announced the name of Surrendra Singh. Now, Angesh Singh will fight independently and I am with him," he said.
