Tej Pratap Yadav: Armed man clutched my hand, RSS, BJP conspiracy to kill me
On the occasion of Eid-al-Adha on August 22, Rashtriya Janata Dal leader and Lalu Prasad Yadav’s elder son Tej Pratap claimed that an armed man “clutched” his hand during a visit to his constituency at Mahua in Bihar. He alleged that the incident was a “conspiracy” by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) to “kill” him.
“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?” Tej Pratap told news agency ANI.

The unidentified accused man was spotted by the former state health minister’s driver in the crowd that had gathered to greet him in Mahua. The driver and the people present raised an alarm and the man was then handed over to the police.
In July, Tej Pratap had accused the BJP and the RSS of hacking his official Facebook account allegedly in an attempt to create a rift in his family and threatened to file a case, but the ruling JD(U)-BJP government in the state dismissed all accusations.
The Facebook post appeared on his official Facebook page in which caused him to make such allegations as he appeared to be resenting the behaviour of a few leaders of his own party and complained that even his parents did not pay attention to his concern.
Deputy chief minister and BJP leader Sushil Kumar Modi had taken a dig at Tej Pratap by saying that he was frustrated after allegedly being overshadowed by his younger brother Tejashwi Yadav.
