Hinting that the inner tussle in the RJD is still on, Lalu Yadav's daughter Misa Bharti who is contesting from Patliputra Lok Sabha constituency, quoted as many as five party leaders when asked that who is leading the party in the absence of her father Lalu Prasad Yadav.
Family members of former Chief Minister of Bihar have been trying to brush aside the claims of inner feud in the family, however, when Lalu Yadav's son Tej Pratap campaigned against the RJD at various places, it was out in open. Now, Lalu's daughter Misa Bharti while speaking to Republic media network said that the national chief of the party is Lalu Prasad Yadav.
When asked who is leading the party in the absence of Lalu Yadav, she said:
"We all are there, Lalu ji, Tejashwi ji, Tej Pratap ji, Abdul Bari Siddiqui ji, Raghuvansh ji
Tejashwi ji is campaigning, Rabri ji is campaigning, Mahagathbandhan's Upendra Kushwaha is campaigning, Mahagathbandhan's Manjhi ji is campaigning. There is nothing as you think. If you recall Tej Pratap's interview, you will remember that he said Tejashwi is his Arjuna (from Mahabharata) and he is with Mahagathbandhan."
