Patna High Court on Saturday ordered RJD (Rashtriya Janata Dal) leader Tejashwi Yadav to vacate his government residence at 5, Deshratan Marg in Bihar that was allotted to him by the state government when he served as the Deputy Chief Minister under Nitish Kumar's tenure as the Chief Minister. Bihar government had earmarked the official bungalow for the present Deputy CM of Bihar who at present is BJP leader Sushil Modi. In a letter issued by the Estate Officer of State's Building Construction Department on September 20, 2017, he was directed to vacate the government premise.
This order of the court has come moments after Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav has decided to snub Congress and has decided to go solo in Madhya Pradesh polls.
On Saturday morning, Patiala House Court had granted bail to Tejashwi Yadav and her mother Rabri Devi along with the other 14 accused in IRCTC scam case, keeping the bail of Lalu Prasad Yadav on hold. Tejashwi Yadav is the younger son of former Bihar CM and RJD president Lalu Prasad Yadav. He lost the post of the Deputy CM in July 2017 after Chief Minister Nitish Kumar walked out of the coalition government and formed a new government with Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).
On October 1, RJD chief Tejashwi Yadav has issued a statement that he might get married after 2019 Lok Sabha elections. During an informal conversation, the leader of the opposition party said,
"I have been getting many marriage proposals from different states for quite some time but I have been delaying my marriage. Now, the pressure within the family is building up. I will surely get married after Lok Sabha elections but not before that .. as I will not be able to find time to go for my honeymooon amid busy campaigning schedule. At present I have completely focused to defeat the communal forces."
