Patna: Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) president Lalu Prasad Yadav’s eldest son Tej Pratap Yadav resigned from the post of patron of the student wing of the party. There has been no improvement in Tej Pratap’s relationship with his family for a long time.
Earlier, Tej Pratap had filed a divorce petition against his wife Aishwarya Rai. He is now gradually drifting away from the party.
Tej Pratap wrote on Facebook and Twitter, “I am resigning as the patron of the student wing of the RJD.”
With this, Tej Pratap tried his hands at an Urdu couplet and made veiled references to his future course of action. Tej Pratap wrote, “Naïve are those who consider me naïve. I know the truth of all.”
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।

Earlier on Thursday, Tej Pratap had convened a press conference. However, later, he called it off.
According to sources, after Lalu Yadav’s intervention, his eldest son did this. The father and son may go their separate ways, with the son soon announcing his new party.
After his resignation, his ouster from the RJD is all the more imminent.
