Yadav had led the party’s campaign in the Lok Sabha elections, in the absence of RJD chief Lalu Prasad, who is currently lodged in jail in connection with fodder scam cases. However, the party – which was in Grand Alliance with the Congress – failed to win a single seat in Bihar.
However, some RJD leaders said here that Yadav will return to Patna by next week and others said that he was in Delhi. There are reports that he is abroad.
