Lalu wants his sons to play cricket, not political games

Anand Mohan Sahay in Patna | October 28, 2007 21:17 IST

RJD supremo and Railway Minister Lalu Prasad does not want his two sons to join politics. Describing them as very good cricket players, he said he would not bring them into the world of politics.

Upbeat at the massive turn-out of people at a rally in Patna on Sunday, Lalu Prasad for the first time introduced his two sons to the crowd as his sons and as cricket players.

"Both--Tej Parat and Tejaswi-- are good cricket players. I will not bring them into the world of politics," Lalu told the massive rally.

 It was being speculated in the local media that Lalu's sons would soon join politics.

When Lalu was introducing his two sons, his wife and former Bihar chief minister and leader of opposition Rabri Devi was seen smiling .So were many other top leaders on the dais.

Lalu asked the sons to offer a traditional pranam to the crowd. Like mature politicians, the duo greeted the gathering with folded hands. Interestingly, Lalu's both brothers-in-law RJD MPs Sadhu Yadav and Subhash Yadav were also present.
