Lalu names Tejashwi as RJD's next CM candidate

President Lalu Prasad on Friday hinted that his younger son Tejashwi Yadav could be the party's face in the next Bihar assembly election. Mr Prasad also slammed the Nitish Kumar government for "splurging" money on preparations for a two-day conference of Power Ministers which was later cancelled.

However, Lalu also stated that the decision will be taken after taking everyone in loop and there is a lot of time left in the upcoming elections. A former Deputy Chief Minister, Tejashwi Yadav, who turned 28 on November 9, is now Leader of the Opposition in the Bihar assembly.

"Compared to us, Tejashwi is far ahead in terms of leadership, oratory and competence", said Lalu, dwelling at length on why he chose Tejashwi to be the RJD face in the next Assembly elections.

Prasad praised his son's leadership skills when he was asked for reaction on state RJD President Ramchandra Purve's comment that next government would be formed by the party under the leadership of Tejaswi Yadav. Later, Siddiqui and Singh expressed their disagreement over Purve's view. "I am not saying this merely because he is my son", the RJD chief told media persons.

Slamming the government for "splurging huge money" on a two-day conference which was cancelled later, Mr. Prasad said: "We've learnt that about ₹60 crore was spent on elaborate preparations as the Nitish government was viewing the conference as an opportunity to get publicity".
