Lalu Prasad's elder son Tej Pratap

Yadav on Saturday had a "political" meeting with his younger

brother Tejashwi Yadav and reiterated that he saw the latter

as "Arjuna" , whom he would assist like Lord Krishna, in

winning the electoral battle in Bihar.

Donning a 'Kurta-pyjama' and a waistcoat with a

muffler wrapped around his neck, Tej Pratap Yadav drove to

Tejashwi's bungalow at 5, Desh Ratna Marg.

Tejashwi Yadav greeted his elder brother by touching

his feet and Tej Pratap responded by placing a hand on his

younger brother's head.

Saturday's meeting took place four days after Tej

Pratap met their mother Rabri Devi. Tejashwi was in Delhi at

that time.

The elder brother had remained estranged from his

family members for a long time since they refused to back him

in his decision to seek divorce from his wife, just six months

after their marriage.

Emerging after the nearly 45-minute long meeting, Tej

Pratap Yadav told reporters, "We held only political

discussions. Things like how to make our party stronger and

take Lalu's dream forward. Tejashwi is my Arjuna and I will

see to it that he occupies the throne."

Speculations have been rife that the elder brother has

been uneasy over the growing clout of the younger one within

the party, who was named as the RJD's chief ministerial

candidate, more than a year ago.

On Thursday, Tej Pratap Yadav had also announced, out

of turn, the candidature of his sister Misa Bharti from

Pataliputra Lok Sabha constituency.

However, on Friday Tejashwi made it clear that any

party candidate would be finalized by the party's

parliamentary board after due approval from Lalu Prasad the

national president, who is at present in Ranchi serving

sentences in a number of fodder scam cases.

The point made by the younger brother was, later,

grudgingly acknowledged by Tej Pratap Yadav.
