Patna, November 9: The absence of RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav from his  residence in Bihar on his birthday is not only disappointing the RJD supporters, who turned out in large numbers to see their leader, but has further added fuel to the supposed ongoing tussle in the family. Tej Pratap Yadav, the elder brother of Tejashwi, has already left home after filing for divorce with his wife Aishwarya Rai, whom he married in May, 2018. Aishwarya Rai to Get a Divorce!

Tejashwi Yadav, the former deputy Chief Minister of Bihar, is in Delhi and won't be at his residence in Patna, said reports. This has disappointed the supporters of Tejashwi, who have been turning up in large numbers at the residence of Rabri Yadav, Tejashwi's mother.

Trouble in the Yadav household began after Tejashwi's elder brother, Tej Pratap, hinted that he was being sidelined in the party. Tej Pratap Yadav had said that he was hurt by the fact that he was ignored in the party and had hinted towards retirement from political life.

However, the Yadav family was seen together in Tej Pratap's wedding on May 14.

But it was recently reported that Tej Pratap Yadav has filed for divorce hardly six months after his marriage to Aishwarya Rai, who is the daughter of RJD leader Chandrika Rai and  granddaughter of former Bihar Chief Minister Daroga Rai. Tej Pratap did not visit his home even on Diwali and celebrated the festival in Vrindavan.
