Tej Pratap, elder son of Lalu Prasad Yadav, on Sunday raised a dissident voice towards his younger brother Tejaswi yadav for rejecting his candidates. In a tweet implying his dissatisfaction, Tej Pratap called his brother as Duryodhan. Earlier, Tej Pratap had positioned himself as the charioteer (Krishna) of Arjun (Tejashwi) in the battle for ousting the NDA.
After having failed to attract the party leadership with his threats, Tej Pratap Yadav on Sunday directed a veiled jibe at his brother Tejashwi Yadav, comparing him to mythological character Duryodhan without taking his name.
Tej Pratap Yadav’s change of heart towards his younger brother comes a day after the RJD went ahead to declare its nominee for Sheohar seat, for which he was backing one Angesh Singh as his ‘choice’ candidate. The RJD will field Syed Fasal Ali from the Sheohar seat.
He has been pitching for the accommodation of five of his candidates, which he scaled down, at least two - Chandra Prakash from Jehanabad and Angesh Singh from Sheohar. He has also aired displeasure on fielding Chandrika Rai, his father-in-law, from Saran and pushed for his replacement with Rabri Devi on the plea that “the seat belonged to the family.”
