Tejashwi Yadav, the younger son of Rashtriya Janata Dal chief Lalu Prasad Yadav, took blessings by touching the feet of his elder brother Tej Pratap Yadav along with mother Rabri Devi before filing the form from Raghopur on Wednesday. These pictures became very viral in the media but now it is learned that Tejashwi is one year ‘older than his elder brother Tej Pratap Yadav. It has been revealed from the nomination papers filled by Tejapratap and Tejaswi that he has filed from his constituency. According to the details given at the time of nomination, the age of Tejashwi is 31 years and that of Tej Pratap Yadav is just 30 years.
Tej Pratap is a RJD candidate from Hasanpur seat. In his nomination papers, he has stated his age as 30 years. While on Wednesday, Tejaswi filed his papers from Raghopur, he recorded his age at 31 years. Now people are questioning this. The world sees Tejashwi Yadav as Tejapratap’s younger brother. But no one can understand how Tejaswi has grown from Tej Pratap in nomination papers. However, in the last assembly elections of Bihar in 2015, there was a similar difference in age in the nomination papers of Tej Pratap and Tejashwi.
Then Tej Pratap had stated his age as 25 and Tejaswi 26. In 2015, Tej Pratap contested from Mahua seat while Tejashwi contested from Raghopur seat itself. As the controversy over age increased, Tej Pratap had clarified that he wrote the age in the nomination papers as recorded in the voter list. He also talked about applying for age improvement. But after five years have passed, the same problem has arisen again regarding the age of the two brothers.
