‘Bahut Hua, Laut Aao Beta’: Rabri Devi Appeals to Tej Pratap Yadav
Rabri Devi said that there were no differences between her sons Tej Pratap and Tejashwi Yadav.
Rabri Devi, former Bihar chief minister and wife of RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav on Friday, 12 April, made an emotional appeal, asking her elder son Tej Pratap Yadav to return home, reported IANS.
Devi said "Bahut hua, laut aao beta" (Enough son, please return home).
Tej Pratap lives in Patna separately, not with his family. He has not returned home since visiting his father Lalu in Ranchi in 2018, just after filing a petition in court seeking divorce from his newly-wedded wife, family sources said, reported IANS. He had gotten married to Aishwariya Rai, the daughter of a senior RJD leader.
No Differences Between Sons
Speaking to the media, Devi said that there were no differences between her sons Tej Pratap and Tejashwi Yadav, contrary to what reports in the media say.
"It is all a creation of vested interests," she said, adding that there had been attempts to create divisions in her family.
"Some people have been trying to instigate and mislead my son. It is possible that our rivals, BJP and JD-U, have people causing it," Rabri said in a reference to her elder son.
Tejashwi had taken over the party after Lalu Prasad was jailed in corruption cases. While Tej Pratap has not publicly made any comment against his younger brother, he had threatened to form a separate party after the party refused to field his aides from two seats, reported NDTV.
He also quit a party post over this incident.
Devi said that she spoke to Tej Pratap over the phone everyday.
Miss Laluji, His Absence is Really Painful
Rabri also expressed her serious concern about the absence of her husband, who has been undergoing treatment at a Ranchi hospital after being convicted in the fodder scam case.
"I miss Laluji...his absence is really painful. Without him everything is useless. Hope he will come back soon," she told the media.
