Close supporter of Lalu quits party posts over ticket issue

download (16)Patna: Rashtriya Janata Dal leader Ram Kripal Yadav, a close supporter of Lalu Prasad, on Saturday quit from all party posts due to an issue over denial of ticket from Patliputra Lok Sabha seat, but he mentioned that he was still in the party.
Addressing a press conference two days after RJD named Mr. Prasad’s daughter Misa Bharti as candidate from Patliputra in Bihar, he disputed his party chief’s version that he had not expressed his inclination to contest from the seat.
Referring to Ms. Bharti’s visit to his home here on Friday and staying put for five hours in a bid to persuade him, he said it was an attempt at “emotional blackmail”.
