Patna: In Bihar, leader of the opposition, Pratibha Yadav, is missing from frequent party meetings. His presence was also seen to be low during the monsoon season. While the absence of Tejashwi Yadav is troubling the RJD as the assembly elections in Bihar next year, the ruling JD(U) has raised fears of splitting the RJD into four parts.
The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has termed the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) as a leadership less party. On Saturday, the RJD had an important meeting. Tejashwi Yadav was to attend the meeting, so RJD worker Josh Kharosh arrived at the airport, but Tejashwi Yadav did not come. The ruling BJP and the JDU in Bihar have questioned the continued absence of Tejashwi Yadav from party meetings. However, the RJD does not agree with it.
According to party spokesperson Shivand Tiwari, the ongoing expansion of the RJD membership campaign is also at its peak and the party will firmly fight the proposed assembly elections next year with the allies. Tejashwi Yadav was present in the Assembly for a few days during the monsoon session. On the other hand, the JDU and the BJP have made it an issue. JD(U) spokesperson Sanjay Singh has said that Tejashwi Yadav is an aspiring politician and wants to be the party's chief.
