Tej Pratap Yadav’s wife Aishwarya Rai likely to contest 2019 LS polls from Bihar's Chhapra
Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leader Tej Pratap Yadav's wife Aishwarya Rai is likely to contest in 2019 Lok Sabha elections for the party from Chhapra in Bihar, according to reports. However, a decision is yet to be taken.
Earlier, Tej Pratap who had gone to attend a meeting at the Bihar Legislative Assembly in Patna, when he was asked whether his wife would join politics like his mother. Lalu Prasad's elder son straightway answered "no" and also stated that,''There is no chance of Aishwarya coming in politics and I personally do not want her to be in politics. She is happy while serving the in-laws and she is a good wife, who is not only taking care of me but also my father and mother. She is a good-natured girl and I am lucky a man.''
Even, Tej Pratap's mother Rabri Devi too had said that Aishwarya would not be joining politics.
Ever since Aishwarya married Tej Pratap, there has been talk that she would contest the upcoming Lok Sabha election from Chhapra, once considered the pocket borough of the RJD first family.
Meanwhile, Even before any official confirmation about Aishwarya's candidature, the ruling Janata Dal United has taken a dig at the RJD saying workers in the party are there merely to play drums and party tickets for elections would be given only to members of Lalu's family.
Tej Pratap Yadav, the elder son of Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) supremo Lalu Prasad and Rabri Devi got married to Aishwarya Rai, granddaughter of former Bihar chief minister Daroga Prasad Rai, at a grand ceremony in Patna on May 12.
There was a huge turnout of well-wishers at the marriage venue. Amid photographs and videos of celebrations, there were also reports of mismanagement at the wedding because of some unruly section of the crowd.
