Tej Pratap Yadav threatens deputy CM Sushil Modi
What does Tej Pratap say in the video?
In the video Tej says that Sushil Modi inviting him to his son Utkarsh's wedding is insulting. He claimed, "A fight is going on, and I will do politics there because of the way we have been cheated, and the poor are treated."
He justifies his intimidating behavior by saying that he is emotional like his father, Lalu, "who speaks from the heart."
Why is there animosity between RJD and BJP?
RJD and JD(U) had formed the government after winning the 2015 elections as part of the Mahagathbandhan, which also included Congress.
However, after corruption allegations against Lalu surfaced, JD(U)'s Nitish ditched the Mahagathbandhan; he however retained power by forming an alliance with BJP.
Further, RJD has been claiming that BJP is behind the corruption cases filed against Lalu and his family members.
