RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav alleged on Sunday that he was not being allowed by the “autocratic” BJP government in Jharkhand to meet his father, Lalu Prasad Yadav, who is undergoing treatment at a hospital. “I have been waiting since yesterday (Saturday) evening to meet my father who is undergoing treatment at a Ranchi hospital but the autocratic BJP government is not even allowing a son to meet his father as per the rules,” Tejashwi Yadav tweeted.
“A conspiracy is being hatched against Lalu ji. He is in jail and undergoing treatment in a hospital under security but his room is being raided every day,” the leader of Opposition in the Bihar assembly said. Tejashwi Yadav’s tweet, Bollywood style, read: “Listen, BJP goons – I am a son of lion. I am the son of Bihar. I am not going to get scared by your antics. Why are you taking cover like cowards… come let’s have a straight fight and prove that you drank your mother’s milk.’’
