“A large number of people visit my father Lalu Prasad with their problems during which I also remain present. We are always with the people, this is nothing unusual for me,” he said. Asked about the allegations that RJD chief Lalu Prasad was holding a parallel ‘Janata Darbar’, Tejaswi rubbished them and said all leaders of the alliance were working to take the state forward under the leadership of Nitish Kumar. “Senior BJP leader Sushil Kumar Modi also holds Janata Darbar, so what is wrong if Lalu Prasad interacts with the masses?” he asked. Complaints related to OBC and EBC welfare department, health, irrigation, general administration, art and culture, education and science and technology were entertained during the programme today. The name of the departments concerned whose complaints would be entertained on a particular day is advertised before hand.
