Had Lalu Yadav joined hands with BJP he would have been considered ‘Harishchandra’: Tejashwi Yadav

New Delhi (India): RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav said that if his father Lalu Prasad Yadav had joined hands with BJP, then the alleged “fodder scam” would have been converted into “brotherhood scam” within two minutes.

Taking to Twitter, he said that joining hands with BJP would have given his father the reputation of being “Raja Harishchandra” (considered an epitome of honesty) while asserting that this all could have happened if Lalu Yadav’s DNA would have changed.

“Had Lalu Ji joined hands with BJP then he would have been considered as ‘Raja Harishchandra’ of Hindustan. The alleged fodder scam would have converted into brotherhood scam within two minutes if the DNA of Lalu Ji had changed,” tweeted Tejashwi Yadav.

Meanwhile, in his bid to put rest to all speculations regarding alleged ‘tension’ between him and his elder brother over the distribution of party tickets, Tejashwi went on to meet Tej Pratap Yadav to wish him on his birthday.

“There was never a difference at all. We have to fight together against the communal and ‘Manuwadi’ forces. This election will decide the future of the country as it is the fight of ideology. Lalu Yadav was falsely implicated and sent to jail. We have to fight together to save constitution and democracy,” said Tejashwi Yadav.

Tej Pratap Yadav, has floated a new outfit called ‘Lalu Rabri Morcha’ stating he would contest as an independent candidate in the Lok Sabha elections. Tej Pratap Yadav had said that Tejashwi is surrounded by “courtiers” who want to create a rift between the brothers.
