The Rashtriya Janata Dal on Monday announced its star campaigners list ahead of 2019 Lok Sabha elections. The list included Rabri Devi, Tejashwi Yadav and Tej Pratap Yadav among others. However, sibling rivalry within Lalu Yadav's family came out in the open as sister Misa Bharti's name was missing from RJD star campaigners list.
Take a look:
Earlier, RJD supremo Lalu Prasad's eldest daughter Misa Bharti on Saturday came under sharp attack from the BJP for her remarks against Union minister Ram Kripal Yadav wherein she said that she had felt like chopping off the hands of her father's former confidant upon hearing the news of his joining the BJP party ahead of the 2014 Lok Sabha polls.
Bharti, who lost to Ram Kripal Yadav from Pataliputra Lok Sabha seat but got elected to the Rajya Sabha later, made the controversial remarks in presence of hundreds of RJD supporters in Bikram assembly segment which falls under the parliamentary constituency.
"He (Ram Kripal Yadav) used to chop fodder and my father helped him in finding a foothold in politics. When I heard that he has joined hands with Sushil Kumar Modi (Bihar Deputy CM and BJP leader) I felt like chopping off his hands by the garansa he used for chopping fodder", Bharti had said.
