Tejashwi said the entire family is concerned about his father's health. The RJD leader said that Lalu has been experiencing difficulty in breathing and had undergone CT scan.
Tejashwi had gone to meet the protesting teachers on Wednesday evening. He was told that the teachers were denied permission to stage a sit-in at their planned venue.
Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leader Tejashwi Yadav on Monday said that assembly elections in Bihar might happen again.
Former Chief Minister Rabri Devi and leader of opposition Tejashwi Yadav are among the over 90 RJD leaders booked for gathering here recently in large numbers in violation of the lockdown to go to Gopalganj for a protest, police said Sunday.
