In perhaps another in his long list of unique acts, former Bihar Minister and son of Lalu Prasad Yadav, Tej Pratap has appealed voters to Not vote for a Rashtriya Janata Dal candidate in Bihar.

Reason? He feels the seat belongs to Lalu Prasad Yadav and not to any 'outsider'.

Interestingly, Tej Pratap's father-in-law Chandrika Rai has been given RJD ticket from that seat. Tej Pratap's marriage with Chandrika Rai's daughter Aishwarya is going through a rough patch.

In his Facebook post written in Hindi, Tej Pratap has stressed on the words "outsider" and "one who is not part of my family" while mentioning Chandrika Rai. The post does not identify Rai by name.
