Recently, Akash Yadav was replaced by Gagan Kumar by the party’s state president Jagdanand Singh, Lalu Prasad’s elder son Tej Pratap Yadav targetted Singh yet again on Wednesday, terming the removal of Akash Yadav against the Constitution of Party.
There were reports of altercations between Tej Pratap and his brother and leader of opposition in BIhar Tejashwi Yadav over the sacking of Akash Yadav as RJD youth wing’s state chief. The scaking of Yadav from the post had resulted in a full-blown war between both the sons of RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav.
Tej Pratap had even claimed that RJD state chief Jagadanand Singh had sacked Akash Yadav on the suggestion of a “migrant advisor” and Tejashwi Yadav clarified that the barb was meant for his advisor Sanjay Yadav who hails from Haryana’s Mahendragarh district.
This was not the first instance when the infighting within the RJD was displayed. Earlier, Tej Pratap Yadav had lashed out at Jagdanand Singh comparing him to Hitler in working in the party. He had said that the post in the party was not the fiefdom to anyone. After Tej Pratap Yadav’s outbursts, Jagdanand Singh didn’t come to the party office for many days.
Singh was allegedly so annoyed at being compared to Hitler by Tej Pratap Yadav that he didn’t come to unfurl the national flag on August 15 in the party office.
