Earlier, we had brought to you Tejashwi’s maternal uncle Sadhu Yadav’s objections to this inter-faith marriage.
Sadhu Yadav had said “Lalu Yadav calls others as Bhakchonhar (incompetent), but the biggest victim is Tejashwi Yadav. Not only the family but the whole society has been tarnished by his marriage in another religion”.
