Tejaswi debuts, speaks of Lalu's magic

Bihar strongman Lalu Prasad's 20 year-old son and his heir apparent Tejaswi Yadav debuted in politics at an election meeting at sprawling Gandhi Maidan, wherein he harped on the magic of his charismatic father.

"My father's magic made Railways achieve a turn-around, he will change the face of Bihar after coming to power," Tejaswi told an election meeting.

The youngster, who was quick to add that he was ''undergoing political training at this stage," launched a scathing attack on Chief Minister Nitish Kumar saying it was unfortunate that the flow of funds which Prasad had arranged from the Centre for the development of the state had not been "properly utilised."

Tejaswi also slammed erstwhile NDA government led by Atal Bihari Vajpayee for meting out step-motherly treatment to Bihar when his mother Rabri Devi was chief minister. He said he would work as a bridge between his parents and the people and work to serve the society.

Tejaswi joined his father at the historic Gandhi Maidan to address a meeting while campaigning for Prasad's aide Vinod Kumar Srivastava from Bankipore assembly seat.
