Patna:State president of Rashtriya Janata Dal, Jagadanand Singh said on Saturday that Tejaswi Yadav's reprimand of his brother Tej Pratap Yadav to maintain discipline in the party has cleared the air and ended all confusion within the party.
Tejaswi Prasad Yadav while leaving for New Delhi on Friday, had adviced his brother Tej Pratap to not break the party discipline and show respect towards the elders, after the latter clashed with Mr Jagadanand over the the state president's removal of Aakash Yadav, a close confidant of Tej Pratap Yadav from the post of president of students wing of the RJD.
Mr Singh told media persons that there was never any confusion among voters and supporters of the party over the issue to begin with. Whatever confusion and controversy had arisen had now ended after Tejaswi Prasad's remarks. RJD president Lalu Prasad was also keeping close watch over the activities and development in the party and had been giving instructions from time to time for the same, he added.
" All are welcome and there is no question of disrespect to anyone in party office", Mr Singh said adding that party leaders and workers would be invited if functions were organised. At present, few party functions were being organised, he said adding that those willing to offer any suggestion, were most welcome in party office.
State RJD president Mr Singh had recently removed Akash Yadav from the post of president of students wing of RJD which had angered Tej Pratap Yadav. Pratap had alleged that Mr Singh was working against provisions of the party constitution as Akash had not been served notice seeking explanation before his removal. He had also dubbed Mr Singh as 'Hitler' for his style of functioning. Tej Pratap had even threatened not to participate in any party activity if no action was taken against Mr Singh. Mr Tejaswi Prasad Yadav had advised his elder brother Tej Pratap to maintain discipline and respect elders during intermission with media persons before leaving for New Delhi on Friday.(UNI)
