Tej Pratap, RJD leader and former health minister of Bihar has reportedly gone missing after meeting his father and RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav post-filing divorce from her wife Aishwarya Rai. Tej even skipped Diwali celebrations at home. However, sister Misa thinks her brother is in Varanasi.
“I think, Tej Pratap is in Varanasi. He is probably introspecting and wants solitude,” said Rajya Sabha MP Misa Bharti, Tej Pratap’s eldest sister. Rashtriya Janta Dal chief Lalu Prasad Yadav and former Bihar chief minister is serving his jail term over corruption charges of multi-crore fodder scam.
Misa was emphatic that “all is well within the family,” claiming that “too much of attention is being given to this divorce episode. It is a family matter and it will blow over.”
Tej Pratap on November 2 filed a divorce in a Patna family court and said he don't want to live with his wife Aishwarya Rai anymore. The duo got married on May 12. After which he went to meet his father in Patna jail and since Friday last week he is missing. It is said he is avoiding coming home as he is apprehensive that his family might persuade him to withdraw the divorce petition before it is heard on November 29.
“Tej Pratap is a bit adamant and has already talked of pursuing the divorce. This is perhaps why he wants to come to Patna only before November 29 to appear before the court. It looks like he is even taking legal advice,” said a close family aide who asked not to be named.
