The Hush Post: Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leader and Bihar’s former health minister Tej Pratap Yadav was attacked by an armed person while on a visit to his constituency — Mahua.
Yadav claimed that a man with a weapon accosted him under the pretext of shaking hands. However, when he held Yadav’s hand, he refused to leave him. When Yadav’s security personnel got to know about the incident, they caught hold of the weapon.
Following the alleged attack, RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav’s son has blamed the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS) for trying to ‘kill him.’
“On my way to Mahua, an armed person held my hand and was unwilling to leave. This is a conspiracy by RSS and BJP to kill me. MLA, ministers are not safe here, how can commoners be safe,” Yadav alleged. He said that the attacker has not been arrested yet.
