PATNA: Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief Lalu Yadav’s son-in-law Chiranjeev Rao is confident of votes of Bihari migrants, who have settled in Haryana.
It is to be noted that Chiranjeev is contesting the Haryana assembly elections from Rewari constituency on Congress ticket. And Lalu has sent his most trusted aid Bhola Yadav to assist his son-in-law in the polls. Bhola Yadav, who is also party MLA from Bahadurpur in Darbhanga in Bihar, was camping in Rewari for the last three days and took part in the campaigning and the road shows along with Chiranjeev.
He had gone to Rewari to ensure that maximum of the Bihari migrants’ votes go to Chiranjeev. Lalu’s daughter and Chiranjeev’s wife Anushka Yadav also accompanied Bhola Yadav in door-to-door campaigning as well as the road show. Even Tejashwi Yadav had reportedly accompanied his brother-in-law Chiranjeev at the time of filing his nomination papers for the assembly elections.
As per reports, Chiranjeev’s father Captain Ajay Singh had sought the help of Lalu and requested him to send Bhola Yadav for his son’s help in campaigning.
Reportedly, Bhola Yadav had expressed confidence of getting votes of over 20, 000 Bihari migrants settled in several Rewari colonies.
The voting in Haryana is scheduled for Monday (October 21) and counting of votes will take place on October 24.
