Tej Pratap Yadav to launch ‘Lalu Rabri Morcha’, claims he will contest elections as an independent candidate

Though Tej Pratap says that his Lalu Rabri Morcha is a part of RJD, he also claims to contest as an independent candidate from Saran. He also states that his morcha will support independent candidates in 20 seats.

Lalu Prasad Yadav’s elder son, Tej Pratap Yadav, has seemingly revolted against his party which has come to be headed by Tejashwi Yadav, the convicted RJD supremo’s other son. As per reports, Tej Pratap has decided to float the ‘Lalu Rabri Morcha’ following his resignation from the Youth Wing of the party.

Speaking at Zee News’ India Ka DNA conclave, he said, “I will not form a new party. I will contest from Saran as an independent as this seat is a bastion of Lalu Prasad and Rabri Devi. I will contest from Saran even if RJD has a candidate from Saran.”

However, Tej Pratap has made it clear that the Morcha will be supporting independent candidates across 20 seats. “I have formed a Lalu-Rabri morcha and I will tour 20 seats in Bihar. We will support independents and contestants who can work for the country. I have got in touch with independents in the 20 seats and Lalu-Rabri morcha is a part of RJD,” he stated.

The elder son of Lalu further stated Tejaswi’s advisers were deliberately trying to create a rift between the two brothers. He said, “I will fight for RJD workers. Those with Tejashwi are giving him the wrong advice. They are instigating our fight. Tejashwi is my younger brother. He has my best wishes. I want to warn Tejashwi to be beware of his adviser. They are giving him the wrong picture.”

Context

The alleged rift between Tej Pratap and Tejashwi has been brewing for quite some time. In June 2018, he had asserted that he would quit politics, only to change his decision in a matter of hours and ended up blaming the RSS for reports of a rift with Tejaswi. Later, in October, Misa Bharti, Lalu’s daughter, had also confirmed the rift between the two brothers only to call it a ‘media twist’ later.

Tej Pratap’s primary contention is that no one listens to him within the party. Over time, he had made a habit of attracting media attention, although for rather unusual reasons. His marital life has been going through a rough patch as well and he can be often seen at various places dressed up in colorful attire.
