A day after voting for the first of the seven-phased Lok Sabha polls in Bihar, Rabri Devi, who is pained by Tej Pratap's decision to stay separately in the state capital, instead of living with the family, said in Hindi: "Bahut hua, laut aao beta" (Enough son, please return home).
Tej Pratap Yadav has not returned home since he visited his father Lalu Prasad in Ranchi last year, after filing a petition in court seeking divorce from his newly-wedded wife, family sources said. Tej Pratap Yadav got married in May last year to Aishwariya Rai, the daughter of a senior RJD leader.
"It is all a creation of vested interests," she said.
She said there have been attempts made to divide her family.
She also revealed that she telephoned her son daily to talk to him.
Tej Pratap has, however, repeatedly expressed his displeasure over younger brother Tejashwi's refusal to field a candidate of his choice from the Sheohar Lok Sabha constituency.
Rabri also expressed her serious concern about the absence of her husband, who has been undergoing treatment at a Ranchi hospital after being convicted in the fodder scam case.
"I miss Laluji...his absence is really painful. Without him everything is useless. Hope,he will come back soon," she said.
