PATNA: Amid reports of differences in the ruling Grand Alliance, Bihar deputy chief minister Tejashwi Yadav today claimed to have the support and blessing of the Janata Dal United (JD-U), its alliance partner.
“Everything is okay in the ruling alliance. I have both the support and blessing of the JD-U,” Yadav told the media on Sunday.
The comments came shortly after a JD-U parliamentarian RCP Yadav was quoted as telling the media that his party was totally against “parivarvad” (family rule) and supports crackdown on “benami” property.
Strangely, the RJD has been accused of promoting dynasticism in politics with many of RJD chief Lalu Prasad’s family members in active politics.
They include Prasad’s sons Tejashwi and Tej Pratap Yadav, both ministers in the Nitish Kumar government, wife Rabri Devi, a legislator, and daughter Misa Bharti who is a Rajya Sabha Member.
