PATNA: RJD supremo Lalu Prasad's son in-law Tej Pratap Singh Yadav will campaign for Samajwadi Party (SP) in the Bihar Assembly elections, a SP leader said today.
Yadav, the SP MP from Mainpuri Lok Sabha seat in Uttar Pradesh, will come to Bihar during Assembly polls and campaign for his party's candidates, Bihar unit SP president Ramchandra Singh Yadav told reporters.
"Politics and familial relations are separate things... Tej Pratap Singh Yadav is a SP leader first and a relative or son in-law of anybody later," he said.
It may be mentioned that Yadav, a third generation politician from the SP patriarch Mulayam Singh Yadav's family, was married to RJD supremo Lalu Prasad's youngest daughter Raj Laxmi at a high-profile function in Delhi earlier this year.
However, the bonhomie between the RJD supremo and the SP chief did not last for long as the latter dumped the 'Grand Alliance' in Bihar earlier this month in protest against the number of seats alloted to the SP.
