    "It is true that I have filed a petition. Ghut-ghut ke jeene se toh koi fayeda hai nahi (It had become suffocating, no point living like that)," ANI quoted Tej Pratap as saying today (November 3).

    Soon after the matter came to light, Ms Rai and her parents rushed to meet Tej Pratap Yadav's mother Rabri Devi at her residence. Lalu Yadav, who is also the head of the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD), summoned Tej Pratap Yadav to the Ranchi Jail, where he is being held. Relatives said efforts are on to make him withdraw the divorce petition, said an NDTV report.

    Yashwant Kumar Sharma, Tej Pratap Yadav's advocate, on Friday said, "They couldn't get along. The application under Hindu Marriage Act was filed through me on behalf of Tej Pratap Yadav. I can't say anything else at this moment."

    "I cannot give much details. I was only told by my client that he and his wife were not compatible and hence he wanted divorce," Sharma said.
