PATNA: RJD president Lalu Prasad's son and Bihar Deputy Chief Minister Tejaswi Yadav today described senior JD(U) leader and Chief Minister Nitish Kumar as his "political guru" from whom he is learning about good governance.
"I see Nitish Kumar as my political guru," Yadav said while delivering a speech on the occasion of 95th Foundation day of Bihar Legislative Assembly today. "Nitish Kumar who is heading a secular coalition government has his own style of governance which me and other youngsters are learning," Yadav, a first timer in Bihar Assembly, said.
He hailed the leadership quality of the CM and said Bihar is marching ahead under his stewardship. Portraying himself as a good learner, the Deputy Chief Minister said elderly members of the House are like guardians for youngsters like him. Yadav, younger son of RJD chief Lalu Prasad, is the MLA from family bastion Raghopur in Vaishali district.
During the swearing in ceremony at Gandhi Maidan on November 20, he had touched Kumar's feet on stage before taking oath. His elder brother Tej Pratap Yadav is number three in the government and Health minister in the Nitish Kumar cabinet. Later, Tejaswi Yadav, who is holding Road Construction Department portfolio, welcomed CM for inauguration of a flyover in the city.
Yadav said a two-day orientation programme organised on the occasion of Foundation day of the Assembly was important for young legislators like him.z
