Tejashwi Yadav's controversial video of distributing money ahead of polls surfaces on social media
Patna : Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leader Tejashwi Yadav landed in a fresh controversy after a video surfaced on social media in which he can be seen distributing money among villagers ahead of the panchayat polls.
The 21-second video has been shared by Janata Dal United (JDU) MLC Neeraj Kumar on Friday morning who alleged that this was a deliberate attempt on Tejashwi’s part to lure voters in the upcoming panchayat elections.
“Who is that prince who is dropping money in the lap of poor villagers. As poor villagers do not know him, someone says that he is the son of Lalu Prasad Yadav. The person sitting on the front seat of the SUV also introduces himself as Tejashwi Yadav, son of Lalu Prasad Yadav,” Neeraj Kumar said describing the video.
The time and place cannot be authenticated by News Heads as the video has been published by the official Twitter handle of JDU MLC Neeraj Kumar.
Though the timing of the video came on public platform is very important as nomination for the Panchayat elections is currently underway and a model code of conduct is also in force in the state.
