Patna, March 29: Tej Pratap Yadav, the elder son of former Bihar Chief Minister Lalu Prasad, may contest the Lok Sabha elections against the father of his estranged wife and RJD candidate Chandrika Rai from the Saran seat, as an Independent candidate.

This comes a day after Tej Pratap Yadav resigned as the chief of the Rashtriya Janata Dal’s student wing after being sidelined by his family and the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD).

As per news agency IANS sources Tej Pratap Yadav was angry that his younger brother Tejashwi Yadav had named Rai as the RJD nominee from Saran, a seat which was won by their father Lalu Prasad four times.

However, in this reagard, Tej Pratap Yadav is yet to make an official announcement.

In November, the elder son of former Bihar Chief Minister Lalu Prasad, filed a petition in a court seeking a divorce from his newly-wed wife Aishwarya Rai.

Despite pressure from his family, he refused to withdraw the plea.

Aishwarya is Chandrika Rai’s daughter and granddaughter of former Chief Minister Daroga Rai.
