A major family feud seems to have broken within the Lalu Yadav family, as sources report on Friday, that RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav skipped the party's 23rd Foundation Day celebrations in Patna. Sources report that Tejashwi is allegedly miffed with elder brother Tej Pratap who attended the celebrations with mother Rabri Devi and other senior RJD leaders. Tejashwi, who is the Leader of Opposition in the Bihar Assembly is also yet to attend the Bihar Vidhan Sabha session, as per sources.
Threatening that anyone who comes between the two brothers (referring to themselves as Krishna and Arjun) will be destroyed by his 'Sudarshan Chakra', Tej Pratap dispelled rumours of a rift between the brothers.
"In social media, various cartoons were made that now there is a rift between both brothers. . People are making false claims that ow there is no connection left between them, the brothers have split up... will beat him us (dhar ke cheer denge). Whosoever will come between Tej and Tejashwi, Krishna and Arjun will have to bear the wrath of 'Sudarshan chakra' of Shri Krishna," Tej Pratap said addressing the gathering.
He also made a pro-women comment asking women to be seated ahead at the event to progress ahead.
Meanwhile, sources have reported that Tejashwi is allegedly angry that he could not secure a single Lok Sabha nomination for his favoured people and allegedly wants a free hand in the party, devoid of Tej Pratap and sister Misa Bharti's influence.
Reacting to Tejashwi's absence from the party helm, RJD natinal Vice-president Shivanand Tiwary said that one cannot run from the party after a single defeat.
"You cannot run away from the people just because of a single defeat. The people want you to become the next chief minister. You must learn from your father and fight back," Tiwary said.
While Tejashwi returned to Patna on Monday, he skipped the monsoon session of the assembly for three days before making a brief appearance on Thursday.
Earlier on Thursday, Bihar CM Lalu Prasad Yadav's elder son Tej Pratap surfaced with a new makeover, sporting a curled hair avataar and referring himself as 'Krishna'. RJD failed to win a single seat in recently concluded Lok Sabha elections, while the BJP-JD(U)-LJP managed to win 39 of the 40 seats.
