I will marry after 2019 Election: Tejashwi Yadav
RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav, who has taken charge of the opposition offensive in Bihar as the stand-in for his jailed father Lalu Yadav, says marriage has to wait till the 2019 national election despite a barrage of proposals. The younger son of the three-time Chief Minister says if he does get married before that, he will be “too busy with the election” for a proper honeymoon.
The question came up when reporters asked Tejashwi, 29, to confirm that since his older brother Tej Pratap Yadav’s wedding in May, proposals have flooded the Yadav home. Offers even poured in at political gatherings, he said, sharing that one time, a priest started showing him matrimonials on stage. “Yes, I’m getting a lot of proposals after the wedding but it will happen only after the Lok Sabha election next year,” Tejashwi told reporters.
“You know, one should have the time for a honeymoon too, but where’s the time for that until the elections?” He also took a dig at Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Modi – Yadav junior had the post until last July when Chief Minister Nitish Kumar dumped the RJD and resurrected his alliance with the BJP – saying: “Now I’m saying this, then he will tweet – how can he marry, first he will have to go to jail. Sushil Modi Keeps predicting every day that Tejashwi will have to go to jail in IRCTC scam.”
