New Delhi, June 11: Amid speculations over a rift between RJD leaders Tej Pratap and Tejashwi Yadav, the Yadav family on Monday celebrated its chief Lalu Prasad Yadav’s 71st birthday in Patna. Party workers too participated in the event.
Prasad’s elder son Tej Pratap Yadav was recently seen in a video accusing Tejashwi of trying to sideline him in the party. However, the brothers later discarded speculations of a split and claimed it was the work of some anti-social elements.
Using Lalu Yadav’s birthday as an opportunity to send out a message that ‘all’s well’ within the party, both Tej Pratap and Tejashwi were seen cutting the mighty 71-pound cake along with their mother Rabri Devi. The party members have made major arrangements for the occasion in Patna.
