He has been openly campaigning against the official Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) candidate in Jehanabad constityency for last one week.

Tej Pratap Yadav said his younger brother is not listening to him, rejecting his advices and neglecting him.

Tej Pratap also claimed that if his father Lalu Prasad Yadav had been outside jail, he would have joined him.

Appealing to people to vote for his Lalu-Rabri Morcha, Tej Pratap Yadav said: "The RJD candidate from Jehanabad, Surendra Yadav, is not suitable as he has twice contested unsuccessfully from the seat. He is a weak candidate. I appeal to the people to support my candidate."

He also reiterated that the Lalu-Rabri Morcha was a part of the RJD.

Tej Pratap Yadav launched the Morcha last month after allegedly being sidelined from the RJD. RJD chief Lalu Prasad has been undergoing treatment at a government hospital in Ranchi, after being convicted in fodder scam cases.

As per the Grand Alliance seat-sharing formula for the Lok Sabha elections in Bihar, the RJD is contesting 19 seats, the Congress in nine, while smaller parties are in the fray for the remaining 12 seats, out of the total 40 constituencies in the state.

Bihar has three more phases to go of Lok Sabha polling - on May 6, May 12 and May 19.
