Tej Pratap holds court for 2nd consecutive day
Patna: Holding peoples' court at the RJDs state headquarters here for the second consecutive day, Lalu Prasads elder son Tej Pratap Yadav on Tuesday said he would be happy if his younger brother Tejashwi Yadav made an appearance at his Janta Durbar.
The MLA and former minister, who had on Monday said he would not shy away from assuming the leadership of the party if given a chance, however, dismissed queries about a number of party leaders reportedly expressing their discomfiture over the prospect of the mercurial leader taking over the reins of RJD.
There may be some RSS-minded people in the party who will get a brainwash once they meet me personally. I do not know what they are saying and why. Elections are approaching and many people start speaking unnecessarily out of worry over tickets, Yadav told reporters.
He said he was committed to helping Tejaswhi become the next Chief Minister of Bihar.
I had expressed my commitment long back, in full public view, and blown a conch to announce the Mahabharata. I have been time and again saying that it is Tejashwi who is Arjuna and I will be playing the role of Krishna. I will be there to guide him. Some people want to create a rift between brothers, he alleged. Notably, the two brothers have not been seen together ever since the elder one filed a petition seeking divorce from his wife of six months, which has met with disapproval from his family.
