NEW DELHI: Tejashwi Yadav, the leader of the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) in Bihar and former Bihar Deputy Chief Minister, has found himself at the centre of attention once again as political tensions escalate in the state. With the Nitish Kumar-led government facing a crucial floor test, the corridors of power are abuzz with speculation and apprehension.
Amid this backdrop, a video has emerged, showcasing a unique moment of camaraderie and solidarity among Tejashwi Yadav and his party’s legislators. Following a legislative party meeting on Saturday, Tejashwi Yadav, along with the legislators, engaged in a musical interlude.
The video captures them singing the lines of “Na Chhedo Humein Hum Sataye Hue Hain, Bahut Zakhm Seene Pe Khaye Hue Hain” (Do Not Tease Us, We’ve Endured Much Pain). Accompanied by the melodious strumming of a guitar, the scene seems symbolic. Yusuf Salauddin, an RJD legislator and the son of MP Mahboob Ali Kaiser, showcased his musical talents by playing the guitar alongside Tejashwi Yadav.
In a strategic move to prevent any potential defections, parties across the political spectrum have taken measures to safeguard their legislators. Congress legislators have been relocated to Hyderabad, while BJP legislators are on a pilgrimage to Bodh Gaya. The Janata Dal (United) has kept its legislators together, and the RJD has chosen to confine its legislators to the residence of Tejashwi Yadav.
Tejashwi Yadav’s residence, a government bungalow on Deshratna Marg, has become a focal point as legislators gather under one roof. With all arrangements made for their stay, the atmosphere is charged with anticipation and uncertainty. Measures were taken to ensure the legislators’ comfort and well-being, including arrangements to protect them from catching a cold amidst the chilly weather.
