Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar’s cutting barb at his arch-rival Lalu Yadav throughout the recently held assembly elections prompted a sharp reaction from the latter’s boy Tejashwi Yadav, the Leader of the Opposition, in the state assembly on Friday.
Tejashwi Yadav called out the speech made by the Janata Dal (United) chief in which he had referred the Rashtriya Janata Dal supremo’s big family, without discussing them by name, and recommended it revealed Lalu Yadav’s choice of having male children.
” I hope the chief minister is conscious that the youngest kid of my parents was a lady, born after 2 children,” said Tejashwi Yadav, whose older sibling Tej Pratap Yadav is also a member of the state assembly and younger sis Rajlaxmi Yadav is married in the household of Samajwadi Party president Mulayam Singh Yadav.
” Now let us concern the reality that the chief minister has just one son. Could we use his own yardsticks and say that he did not have another out of worry that it could be a girl?” Mr Yadav stated.
The 32- year-old RJD leader, who was taking part in the dispute on the guv’s address to the newly constituted assembly, expressed discouragement that while he focused on “individuals’s concerns” throughout the elections, the judgment National Democratic Alliance (NDA) resorted to individual attacks.
” I was discussing tasks. And I bow before individuals of Bihar who chose us and assisted us become the single largest party. If not for manipulations by pliant authorities published in locations where outcomes of securely objected to elections were overturned, we may have got the possibility to satisfy our promises,” Mr Yadav alleged.
” But my challengers had other top priorities. A person no less than the Prime Minister enjoyed name-calling,” said Mr Yadav, referring to the rallies of Prime Minister Narendra Modi where he utilized the expression “jungle raj ke yuvraaj” to target the RJD leader.
” I do not like to make snide remarks versus my seniors. This goes against the values I have actually been raised with. I have actually constantly addressed the honourable Chief Minister, even in speeches uttered in the public, as chacha (uncle),” said Mr Yadav.
” But my point is, does it behove a primary minister to make such utterance,” he asked with a rhetorical flourish to which Nitish Kumar reacted with an indulgent laugh.
Last month, Nitish Kumar had taken no names in his taunt at the Yadav household about “having 8 to nine kids in the mission for a child” at an election rally.
