In a show of strength, former Bihar Deputy Chief Minister Tejashwi Prasad Yadav has been unveiled as “Baahubali” in a series of posters ahead of the Lalu Prasad Yadav-powered ‘BJP hatao, Desh bachao’ rally slated for August 27 later this month. 

The poster borrows a catchy phrase from Bhojpuri film industry, reads “Jiya Ho Lalu ke Laal” and impersonates the face of Tejashwi in the poster of South blockbuster starring Prabhas as ‘Bahubali’.  

Apparently, Tejashwi Prasad Yadav has emerged as the leader of opposition in the state of Bihar after the unceremonious exit from the govt following Nitish Kumar’s decision to break ‘Grand Alliance’ and align with Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP) to form the government in Bihar. 

Post the split of the Mahagathbandhan (Grand Alliance) of Bihar government, Tejashwi Yadav has been constantly attacking Bihar CM Nitish Kumar and has leveled various allegations.

Meanwhile, upping his ante against the now Janata Dal (United) and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) led government in the state, RJD has organised a rally called ‘BJP hatao, Desh bachao’ on August 27 for which non-NDA groups and parties are also invited.

A couple of days ago, the former Deputy Minister Tejashwi Yadav, who is the second eldest son of former RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav also demanded Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and Sushil Modi’s resignation over involvement in Srijan scam.
