Lalu’s Son Tej Pratap Yadav Has Found A New ‘Sister’ In Ishrat Jahan

Updated on 17 February, 2016 at 11:14 am By

In 2013, when relations between the BJP and the JD(U) in Bihar were at a nadir, a leader of the Nitish Kumar-led government had called Ishrat Jahan a ‘daughter of Bihar’.

JD-U leader Ali Anwar had remarked:

“Ishrat Jahan was a daughter of Bihar and people from Bihar believe in fighting for truth. She will get justice; we will get it for her”.

But those were the days when India believed that the then 19-year-old was killed in a fake encounter on June 15, 2004.

A tectonic shift in perception was triggered with David Headley’s revelation on Thursday that Ishrat Jahan was actually an operative of the Lashkar-e-Taiba.

It is, therefore, understandable for politicians who had earlier supported Jahan for going quiet this time. But Lalu Prasad Yadav’s son Tej Pratap Yadav is not one of them.

He spoke, and he spoke in favour of Jahan in such a way that he might have just put the Bihar CM Nitish Kumar in a tight situation.

On Friday, Tej Pratap, who is Bihar’s Health Minister and older brother of Deputy CM Tejaswi Yadav, said:

“Nitish Kumar-ji had called Ishrat Jahan ‘Bihar’s daughter’. This is true and we will continue to maintain this stand.”

His comments came after the state BJP demanded an apology from Nitish Kumar referring to his 2013 comments. Union Minister Giriraj Singh said Nitish Kumar had played with national security for the sake of vote bank politics.

With this Tej Pratap cemented that he is too ‘innocent’ for politics, let alone the politics they play in Bihar.

We have now three signs that show why Lalu Prasad Yadav made his younger son the Deputy CM and not Tej Pratap:

1. He flubbed during his oath taking ceremony twice,

2. He came up with the weird idea of riding horses to curb air pollution,

3. And now he spoke in favour of Ishrat Jahan when the political winds had started flowing in the other direction.
