New Delhi: Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leader Tej Pratap Yadav,who has sought a divorce with his wife of six months, Aishwarya Rai, has dropped a fresh hint that he was in no mood to patch up.
Taking to micro-blogging site Twitter, the former Bihar minister wrote a stanza from a verse composed by 16th century poet Abdul Rahim Khan-e-Khana – “tute se phir na jute, jute ganth pari jaay” (May the thread of love never be broken. If it gets snapped it cannot be mended and any attempt to do so results in knots).
On November 3, Yadav had filed his divorce petition before a Patna court . The matter is likely to come up for hearing on November 29. After filing the petition, he had told reporters that his differences with his wife were “irreconcilable”.
Yadav had maintained that he would not return home till his family backed his decision to divorce his wife Aishwarya.
The RJD leader was last seen in Bodh Gaya on November 3 where he had checked-in to a hotel after meeting his ailing father at a hospital in Ranchi. The sources said Yadav performed Govardhan Puja in Vrindavan and circumambulation of the Giriraj hillock in Govardhan town. On November 9, sources close to Yadav said that the former Bihar minister left for Delhi.
Tej Pratap and Aishwarya Rai — daughter of RJD MLA Chandrika Rai and grandchild of former Bihar chief minister Daroga Prasad Rai — had tied the knot on May 12.
