Bihar : LS poll - First wife to contest on JDU ticket, second wife from RJD!


Patna, Mar 8 (PTI): The Khagaria Lok Sabha seat in Bihar is all set to see an interesting in-house battle with Lalu Prasad giving RJD ticket to the second wife of a local strongman whose first wife is a JD(U) legislator from the same place.

Prasad has given RJD ticket from Khagaria to Krishna Yadav, second wife of local strongman Ranbir Yadav. His first wife, Poonam Devi Yadav, is JD(U) MLA from Khagaria and both are biological sisters.

But, the two denied any "dharam sankat" because of this. "I am in JD(U) and will work for the party," Poonam Devi Yadav told PTI over phone. She said there was no rift among them over the issue and they love each other.

Krishna Yadav, a national athlete in her youth, was also all praise for her elder sister. Both live under same roof in Khagaria.

"People of Khagaria will decide the election results," she said exuding confidence of her victory.

Ranbir Yadav is a convict in the 1985 Lakshmipur-Taufir diara carnage in which nine people were killed. He has completed his jail term.

He said there was no fight within his home and said even Poonam Yadav will vote for Krishna Yadav.

Krishna Yadav, who is Khagaria district board chairman, told PTI that her elder sister herself had sought JD(U) ticket for her from Chief Minister Nitish Kumar. The CM had suggested to talk to National President Sharad Yadav, who is MP from neighbouring Madhepura, in this regard.

"But since nothing came from him, I accepted the offer from Lalu Prasad to contest from RJD," Krishna Yadav said.

Ranbir Yadav had hit the news when he had brandished a sten gun to escort Chief Minister Nitish Kumar to the dias in Khagaria in 2012 amid violent protest by contractual teachers who had also hurled slippers at the CM.

    Is polygamy legal in India under the Hindu Marriage Act given that Ranbir Yadav and his wives are Hindus?

    Thank God , he did not have more wives. Otherwise, they would have contested one each from BJP, Cong, CPM, CPI, including AIADMK from Bihar itself.
    Why our own Kumaraswamy should not emulate this Bihari Bahu-Patni-Vallabha ?
