PATNA: Tej Pratap Yadav, former Bihar health minister and son of RJD chief Lalu Prasad, has earned wide applause after he allowed a poor, shelter-less woman to stay in the premises of party office in Patna.
For the past one week, Tej Pratap had been holding ‘junta durbar’ in his party office to help the poor.
On Monday, a poor woman whose hut had been removed by the district administration under the ongoing anti-encroachment drive reached Tej Pratap’s junta durbar and narrated her tale of woes before him, seeking help.
Moved at her pathetic plight, Tej Pratap asked the poor woman to stay in the premises of party office itself.
“The RJD is a party of the poor. If RJD doesn’t support them then who ones will take care of them,” he told the media on Monday.
The RJD was thrown out of power in July last year shortly after chief minister Nitish Kumar broke away from the ruling Grand Alliance and formed his new government with the BJP support.
