RJD leader Tej Pratap Yadav, the elder son of party president Lalu Prasad, today resigned as the ‘sanrakshak’ (mentor) of the party’s students wing.
“I am resigning from the post of Chhatra Rashtriya Janata Dal Sanrakshak. Those who think I am ignorant are ignorant themselves. I am well aware of who is worth what,” he tweeted.
छात्र राष्ट्रीय जनता दल के संरक्षक के पद से मैं इस्तीफा दे रहा हूँ।
नादान हैं वो लोग जो मुझे नादान समझते हैं।
कौन कितना पानी में है सबकी है खबर मुझे।
— Tej Pratap Yadav (@TejYadav14) March 28, 2019
The sudden development comes as a major embarrassment to the party which has been beset by speculations of fierce rivalry between Tej Pratap and his younger brother Tejashwi Yadav.
Tejashwi has been declared as the political heir apparent of the RJD supremo.
