Ahead of the Lok Sabha Elections 2019, Tej Pratap Yadav had launched his own political outfit ‘Lalu Rabri Morcha’ in Patna and demanded two Lok Sabha seats of Sheohar and Jehanabad.
In November, he had filed a petition in a court seeking a divorce from his newly-wed wife Aishwarya Rai, granddaughter of former Chief Minister Daroga Rai, and despite pressure from his family he had refused to withdraw the plea.
