PATNA: Swatting away rumors on the discrepancies in the age of his sons as per the affidavits filed by them, Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) supremo Lalu Prasad Yadav on Tuesday said that there was no error whatsoever and what was mentioned in the voter list was final.

“Tejaswi’s age in voter id is real and there is no dispute related to that. What is written in the voter list is final,” Lalu told the reporters here.

Lau’s younger son Tejaswi, however, said there is an error in the affidavit and added that they have filed a complaint in this regard.

The affidavit filed by the RJD chief’s elder son Tej Pratap Yadav while submitting his nomination from the Mahua Assembly seat in Vaishali district shows his age as 25 years.

The affidavit filed by Tejaswi, who is contesting from the Raghopur assembly seat, shows his age as 26 years.
