The Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) on Saturday announced that party leader and younger son of Party Chief Lalu Prasad Yadav, Tejashwi Yadav will be the party’s chief ministerial candidate for the Bihar Assembly polls slated for next year.

Tejashwi Yadav’s name was approved by the party during its national executive meeting that held today in Patna. The meeting was attended by many top leaders including Jaiprakash Narayan Yadav, former MP and RJD state President Ramchander Purve.

The development comes amidst demand from many parties, including Congress, that Tejashvi Yadav should resign taking moral responsibility of the defeat.

RJD Leader and Leader of Opposition in Bihar Assembly, Tejashwi finally made an appearance in the state Assembly on Thursday after skipping four days of the ongoing Monsoon Session. Yadav had last week clarified that he had been undergoing treatment.

RJD, earlier this week, had clarified that Tejashwi Yadav will not follow Rahul Gandhi’s way and will continue as the Leader of Opposition in the Bihar Assembly.
