Tej Pratap Yadav, the former Health Minister of Bihar and son of former Chief Ministers Lalu Prasad Yadav and Rabri Devi, has taken many guises in the past few months. At times, he's dressed up as a Sadhu or in a Krishna avatar, and on other occasions, he's turned horse-rider and hippie gymmer. This time around, in a video accessed by Republic, he appears to have turned saviour, showcasing generosity by feeding a hungry street Dafali (Tambourine like instrument) player.

Tej Pratap's many avatars

Tej Pratap, who is the older brother of Tejashwi Yadav who led the RJD through its disastrous performance in the 2019 Lok Sabha polls, has appeared in many guises over the past year or so. He routinely dresses up as various gods and mythical figures, with his Lord Krishna and Lord Shiva looks becoming big talking points. However, mythology isn't the only sphere from which Tej Pratap draws inspiration in terms of his looks. Recently, he showcased his home gym and his new afro hairdo, both of which went viral.

Tej Pratap however, claims the matter to be otherwise

On the political front, however, it remains to be seen how influential Tej Pratap can become in his party. The RJD was humbled in the 2019 elections, and rumours of a rift between brothers Tej Pratap and Tejashwi refuse to go away. Meanwhile, there have been regular reports of overtures from the RJD to the CM Nitish Kumar-led JD(U) over rejoining the Mahagathbandhan in the lead up to next year's Bihar elections.
