Tej Pratap Yadav, elder son of jailed RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav, is seemingly becoming more vocal against his brother Tejashwi Yadav.
Addressing a rally in Jahanabad on Thursday in favour of his candidate Chandra Prakash, he made a veiled attack at Tejashwi saying, “He (Lalu Prasad) is a very energetic man. He used to attend 10-12 programmes in a day. Now, leaders fall sick in just two to four programmes.”

Tejashwi, who is handling the party after Lalu went to jail in a corruption case, has cancelled many of his scheduled rallies due to health constraints.
Tej Pratap also claimed he was the second Lalu in Bihar. “I am the blood of Lalu Yadav. He is our idol as well as our guru. I am the second Lalu Yadav in Bihar,” he said.
Exuding confidence, he said Chandrasekhar, who has been pitted against official party candidate, will win the Jahanabad seat with a margin of more than one lakh.
Jahanabad will go to polls in the seventh phase on May 19. Results will be announced on May 23.
