Patna: Tejaswi Yadav, while meeting with the party leaders from Saran district in Patna on Thursday, mocked his former boss and Chief Minister Nitish Kumar saying the whole exercise of creating a state-wide human chain to spread awareness about the ills of child marriage and dowry was nothing but a 'self-congratulatory' drill intended to feel good about himself.

The former Deputy Chief Minister, who is acting as the de facto leader of the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) in the absence of his father Lalu Prasad Yadav who remains behind bar in Ranchi in connection with an embezzlement case, an offshoot of the fodder scam, said that the entire human chain exercise was nothing but a 'self-praise' effort by a man who thrives on such things to draw attention towards himself.

"To receive accolades, he is putting school children and government employees of Bihar through brutal chilly condition. He has a habit of using government machinery to enhance his own image. There are more important issues in Bihar like dealing with the issues of the contract teachers but he would rather promote himself than take on issues that really matter to the people of Bihar.

Yadav, who blames Nitish Kumar for the conviction and incarceration of his father, further said that education, health care, and crime situation had deteriorated in Bihar since the Chief Minister walked out of the Grand Alliance last July but instead of trying to resolve these issues, he prefers to engage in grandstanding by abusing the government machinery.

"He has an insatiable appetite for taking credits for social changes even if it means inconveniencing school children who would be forced to stand outside in freezing temperature just to keep the Chief Minister in good humor," the RJD leader said.

Meanwhile, the two servants of Lalu Prasad Yadav who got themselves arrested just days before the RJD chief was sentenced to three and a half years in prison so they could serve their master during his stay in the jail, went into hiding a day after they were released from the prison

Police in Ranchi said that both Laxman Mahto and Madan Yadav, the two personal attendants of Lalu Prasad Yadav, were released from the prison after officials found out that they had staged the crime in an attempt to be sent to the jail ahead of the arrival of their boss. However, the two immediately went into hiding to avoid being re-arrested and sent to some other jail.
