Patna: A day ahead of the counting of votes polled in the three-phase Bihar Assembly elections, the family and supporters of Rashtriya Janata Dal leader Tejashwi Yadav wished him on his 31st birthday.
The RJD supporters were visibly in a celebratory mood on the Patna roads even as Tejashwi’s elder brother Tej Pratap Yadav, eldest siter Dr Misa Bharti, and mother Rabri Devi conveyed their best wishes to Tejashwi on the occasion.
Tej Pratap tagged Tejashwi and tweeted to say ‘Happy Birthday Tutu’ to address his younger brother by his nickname.
Misa too tweeted: “Happy birthday, younger brother. Keep progress(ing) in life and do good work for every person.”
Rabri Devi and Tej Pratap wished Tejashwi seconds after the midnight hour struck. Tejashwi also cut a cake on the occasion.
