Patna: Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief Lalu Prasad Yadav's elder son Tej Pratap shared an emotional message for his father after being denied a chance to speak at a rally.
Tej Pratap took to Twitter an shared a cut out of his picture with Lalu. He wrote, "I was not allowed to speak due to my father's absence. I miss you, papa.”
The mahagathbandhan rally in Pataliputra was held by Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Thursday, wherein he was joined by party candidate Shatrughan Sinha and alliance partner RJDs Tejashwi Yadav among others.
मेरे आदरणीय पिता के अनुपस्थिति की वजह से मुझे आज बोलने नहीँ दिया गया।— Tej Pratap Yadav (@TejYadav14)
Talking about brother Tejpratap’s disappointment, Tejashwi said he does not have any knowledge about it. "He has delivered many speeches with me at rallies. However, sometimes, there is a time crunch," the former Bihar deputy chief minister said.
Lalu is currently serving a jail term in Ranchi after being convicted in the multi-crore fodder scam cases.
There were differences reported within the Yadav family after Tej Pratap resigned from RJD's student wing over being sidelined. He had also floated his own outfit named Lalu-Rabri Morcha and had said that he will tour 20 seats in Bihar for the election.
