Patna: Despite his earlier denial that he was neither a criminal nor a terrorist, the son of Lalu Prasad Yadav, Tej Pratap Yadav on Monday, just days after threatening Deputy Chief Minister of Bihar Sushil Kumar Modi, issued threat to Prime Minister Narendra Modi saying he would skin him (khaal udherva lenge) if anything happened to his father.
Angry over the withdrawal of Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief's Z+ security cover provided by the National Security Guard (NSG), Tej Pratap, who has chosen to adopt the language of criminals since losing power, threatened the Prime Minister saying "Narendra Modi ji ka khaal udherva lenge".
"If my father is murdered who will be responsible for it? Do you think my father's life has no value and only the life of the Prime Minister is valuable?" the former minister who is said to be working to fill the vacuum created by the taming of former 'bahubalis' like Mohammed Shahabuddin, Pappu Yadav, Sunil Pandey, and Anant Singh, said before a posse of reporters.
As reported earlier, the elder son of Lalu and former Health Minister of Bihar had threatened Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Kumar Modi saying he would disrupt Modi's son's wedding on December 3 and will beat up the BJP leader in full view of his wedding guests.
Facing strong backlash for his son's crude comments and the possible political fallout from it, the RJD chief assured Modi of no threat from Tej Pratap saying the BJP leader should go ahead and perform his son's wedding without any concern for violence.
"Tej Pratap just hissed and Modi got so scared that he changed the venue of his son's wedding. The BJP leader does not need to be a such a 'darpok' (coward) and should go ahead with his son's wedding without any fear of anything. Our best wishes are with them," the RJD chief said.
Meanwhile, an FIR was lodged against Tej Pratap by a BJP West Delhi MP Parvesh Sharma.
"Tej Pratap Yadav could be facing jail time for threatening the Prime Minister of India. He would be well advised to retain a good defense lawyer because this is a pretty cut and dry case as he would be treated as the enemy of the nation," BJP West Delhi MP Parvesh Sharma said in Delhi.
