RJD leader Tej Pratap Yadav violently pushed away a party worker on stage at a party function onMonday, May 13. A video of the incident went viral on social media platform X. In the video, Tej Pratap is seen angrily pushing away a party worker. The incident took place in Patna after the nomination of Misa Bharti. Local reports said that a scuffle broke out between Tej Pratap Yadav and RJD supporters at the Shri Krishna Memorial Hall.

It is not clear what led the mercurial RJD leader to lose his cool at the party worker. Thankfully, Tej Pratap's sister Misa Bharti and his mother Rabdi Devi intervened to control the situation.

Tej Pratap Clarifies

After the incident, Tej Pratap Yadav issued a clarification and said that it was the party worker who was pushing him after coming in between Misa Bharti and his mother Rabri Devi on stage. He also said that he already has an injury on his hands and that he was forced to push aside the worker from stage.

Tej Pratap in his X post also clarified that he did not intend to hurt the party worker and said that all those reposting the video should know that every "incident has two sides just like a coin".

BJP Attacks RJD Over The Video

The BJP was quick to react to the video. BJP national spokesperson Shehzad Poonawalla said that the video was a sign of things to come if the RJD came to power in the state and recalled the "jungleraaj" time in Bihar.

"VVIP arrogance & gundaagardi peaks Jungle raj display on public stage as Lalu’s son Tej Pratap assaults & pushes a karyakarta on stage. Imagine if they are like this to workers on stage before elections what they will do to Janta after elections," said Poonawalla sharing the video of the incident.

Tej Pratap Yadav is known for his mercurial nature and has lost his cool in the public in the past too. The RJD leader has courted controversy due to his controversial utterings and actions. However, with this incident coming at a time when the Lok Sabha Elections 2024 are underway, the BJP is leaving no stone unturned to attack the RJD and INDIA alliance.

YSRCP MLA Slaps Voter

This is the second such incident in a day. Earlier, a YSRCP MLA in Andhra's Guntur, slapped a voter after the person raised objection over the MLA jumping the queue at the polling station on Monday. The video of the incident went viral. The state of Andhra Pradesh votes for the Lok Sabha as well as the state assembly on Monday, May 13.
