With a day left for the results of the Lok Sabha election, it is alleged that former Bihar CM Lalu Yadav’s son and RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav is not present in Patna since the last phase of elections on May 19. Moreover, his elder brother Tej Pratap Yadav has no clue as to where his younger brother is.
On May 19, when Patna went to polls, Tejashwi did not cast his vote because of a discrepancy in his electoral entry. Her mother Rabri Devi has accused the BJP of the discrepancy in his entry and termed it to be another controversy. This comes despite Election Commission assuring that Tejashwi will be allowed to vote if he carries his valid ID proofs.
Tejashwi Yadav, termed to be the face of Mahagtahbandhan in Bihar has addressed around 200 rallies in the state and had urged people to vote, did not attend the Opposition meeting with the EC on Tuesday and party spokesperson Manoj Jha attended on the behalf of the party. However, Republic TV sources have learned that he is out on holiday.
When Republic TV called his brother Tej Pratap, he said: "No I don't know. You only go and find out and let me know."
Earlier, Bihar Deputy Chief Minister and BJP leader Sushil Modi mocked Tejashwi and said that 'the so-called leaders' cannot even check their entry in the electoral roll.
Meanwhile, while speaking to media before going to attend the dinner for NDA leaders at BJP HQ, Bihar CM Nitish Kumar expressed his confidence for victory.
He said: "We will be a part of NDA government Nitish Kumar: I don't believe in mudslinging. People said many things about me but I will not react to them. Not in worry, we will get a full mandate."
