Tej Pratap divorce case: Yadav scion denies withdrawing petition

Patna (Bihar): Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief Lalu Prasad’s elder son Tej Pratap Yadav on Wednesday denied withdrawing his divorce petition.

Yadav scion made these remarks after appearing in the Patna Family Court.
He said, “I have not taken my petition back.”

Tej Pratap Yadav on November 2 had filed a petition in a Patna Court seeking divorce from his wife Aishwarya Rai.

Tej’s advocate, Yashwant Kumar Sharma, who filed the petition, informed that the two could not get along with each other and, therefore, have decided to part ways.

“They could not get along. I filed an application under the Hindu Marriage Act on behalf of Tej Pratap Yadav. I cannot say anything else at this moment,” he said.

A day later, Tej Pratap Yadav also asserted that he was unhappy after his marriage with Aishwarya Rai and hence had filed the divorce petition.

“Yes, I have filed a petition in the court. I will be fighting the case. There is no point in leading an unhappy life,” he said.

Tej married Aishwarya, daughter of senior party leader Chandrika Rai, on May 12 this year. The lavish wedding, which took place in Patna, witnessed around 10,000 guests including Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and other politicians.
