Tejashwi Yadav, RJD MLA and Leader of Opposition in Bihar has returned to the State after 42 days of absence. He will be addressing a party meeting on Sunday in Patna.
After the Lok Sabha results in May, he had been absent from the State. The RJD did not win a single seat in the general election.
Pilloried by ruling NDA leaders and reportedly perturbed by the power struggle within the RJD’s first family, Mr Tejashwi Yadav’s disappearance set off feverish speculations.
Despite assurances from top party leadership, he was not present at the party’s recent two-day meeting at the home of his mother and former chief minister Rabri Devi for a membership drive, reported The Hindu.
However, Tejashwi Yadav arrived at Patna and energetically jumped into political activism.
He staged a night-long dharna with milkmen at Patna railway station where the district administration had demolished their structures. His elder brother Tej Pratap Yadav also joined him and told NDA leaders, “Beware! Tejashwi, my Arjun, has come”.
The next day Mr Tejashwi Yadav reached his Assembly constituency Raghopur in Vaishali district and kicked-off a party membership drive, The Hindu reported.
