Tej Pratap comes up with a strange reason for the ‘rift’ between him and his brother

Rashtriya Janta Dal (RJD) leader and the party supremo’s elder son Tej Pratap Yadav has yet again stirred up a controversy, this time within his own party. Yadav on Saturday morning tweeted insinuating that he would retire from politics but by the evening he reverted back and said he is here to stay.

In his tweet, he drew references to the Hindu epic, “Mahabharat”, stating his consideration of heading to Dwarka after installing Arjun, here Arjun is believed to be his younger brother Tejashwi, as the King. He ended this tweet of his by stating how there are people who will be troubled to see him as a kingmaker.

Tej Pratap Yadav who was the erstwhile health minister before the coalition government in Bihar broke down there has been little mention of his in the media. This alienation of Yadav is said to have escalated ever since the RJD chief and his father Lalu Prasad Yadav was jailed in December on corruption charges. Sice Lalu’s arrest, his younger son Tejashwi Yadav took charge of the party and has been credited with the party’s three by-poll wins.

Tej Pratap Yadav had earlier stirred up a controversy by threatening to ‘skin’ Prime Minister Modi when his father security was downgraded; even Lalu disapproved of his statement. He is also accused of constructing an illegal temple in the premises of his ministerial bungalow, which was allotted to him when he was a minister. He later vacated the bungalow after alleging that the opposition has let ghosts loose after him.

However, Tej Pratap put an end to the speculations by tweeting and clarifying his stand and blaming the RSS for trying to create a rift between two brothers.

Since his tweet, Yadav has vehemently denied any rift with his brother and accused anti-social elements within the party of conspiring to break the party from within. He did express his unhappiness with the party’s work and these ‘antisocial’ elements constant instigation to create an internal rift.

Reflective of the isolation Yadav is facing within the party and outside of it, he stated, “People in the party don’t listen to me. There should be discipline”. He even accused state President RC Purve of ‘ignoring the workers’.

Meanwhile, Tejashwi has also come out in support of his brother, denying the rift. He said that Tej Pratap was speaking of unifying the party for the upcoming elections.
