Indian politics is a very entertaining one. Politicians here make some ridiculously funny claims in order to get public attention. They never fail to bring an ocean of laughter with their speeches, conspiracy theories and claims. The latest to join this bandwagon is none other than the elder son of fodder scam convict Lalu Prasad Yadav- Tej Pratap Yadav. After accusing the incumbent CM of Bihar, Nitish Kumar of resorting to ‘black magic’ and unleashing ‘ghosts’ to force him out of his bungalow now Rashtriya Janta Dal leader and former Health Minister of Bihar Tej Pratap strongly believes that the BJP has hired hitmen to kill him. He claimed, “On my way to Mahua, an armed person held my hand and was unwilling to leave. This is a conspiracy by the RSS and BJP to kill me. MLAs, ministers are not safe here, how can commoners be safe?” The man was later on handed over to police and nothing as such happened which caused any sort of risk to security and safety of Tej Pratap Yadav.

People, who are well aware of Tej Pratap Yadav, consider him as the perfect competitor to Rahul Gandhi. Just like Rahul Gandhi, the former health minister of Bihar appears in news because of his ludicrous claims, crazy comical antics and conspiracy theories. Earlier also, The RJD leader in July had claimed that his FB account was hacked by the RSS-BJP in order to create disharmony in the family. Before this stupid claim, he had threatened to quit politics. He took to social media to express his dissatisfaction with his mother (former Chief Minister of Bihar), Rabri Devi, over not acknowledging the issues faced by him within the party. Tej Pratap, in his post, accused RJD leader Om Prakash Yadav and Member of Legislative Council, Subodh Kumar Rai for damaging his reputation. Tej Pratap claimed that he talked about this issue with his parents but then no action was taken against these leaders, instead his mother scolded him for the same.
Tej Pratap Yadav, just like the Congress President Rahul, is working hard to keep the spirit of his party alive. He formed Dharmnirpeksha Sevak Sangh as a ‘secular counter weight’ to the nationalist Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh. He also dressed up as Bhagwan Krishna playing flute much before Rahul Gandhi’s Temple run during the Gujarat assembly elections.

Just a few days ago he took social media by storm when he showed his commitment to bring more ‘transparency’ in Indian politics. Tej Pratap Yadav while taking a half-naked bath in public exposed more than required. Video of his half-naked bath went viral on social media.

Along with his political innings, Tej Pratap Yadav is all set to begin his inning in Bollywood as well. In June, he released the poster of his ‘comming soon’ movie- Rudra: The Avtaar.

Earlier, he had tweeted a picture with Albert Einstein’s quote where he is lying on the grass- by the way, grass and Lalu family have very old relation- anyway, lying on grass and enjoying nature is not a politician’s cup of tea, and this is something more associated with a celebrity rather than a politician. It looks like it is really happening; Tej Pratap is going to be an actor “berry soon.”

Tej Pratap Yadav is following the footsteps of his own father, who never failed to entertain the masses, despite the infinite pile of criminal as well as corruption cases building up behind him. Politics is entertaining and interesting because of the presence of leaders like Tej Pratap and Rahul Gandhi.
