Chandrika Rai, the brother-in-law of RJD president Lalu Prasad, will join the JDU with 2 MLAs today. On 12 May 2018, Chandrika Rai's daughter Aishwarya was married to Lalu Yadav's elder son Tej Pratap Yadav. At that time everyone felt that this relationship between two big political houses would be carried on for many generations. However, Aishwarya's relationship with Tej Pratap and her MBA up to 12th standard only lasted 175 days.
Chandrika Rai left RJD in February
The family dispute grew to such an extent that Tej Pratap reached the court and filed for divorce. The divorce case is still in court. Aishwarya tries her best to save the relationship. Rabri stayed in the residence for several months even after filing for divorce on behalf of her husband, but this trend could not work much.
Aishwarya herself accused her mother-in-law Rabri and other family members of harassing her. The extent was reached when on 14 September 2019 she came out of the Rabri house crying. Saddened by this, on 14 February this year Chandrika Rai left the RJD in which he had been for 30 years.
Rai family's hold on Parsa seat, now family members clash
Chandraika Rai's family is taking hold despite Yadav being more in the Parsa assembly segment of Saran district. This assembly constituency was formed in 1951, when Chandrika's father Daroga Prasad Rai won the election and became the first MLA of Parsa. Daroga Prasad Rai won elections from here 7 times. Chandrika Rai later contested this seat.
RJD has chosen a member of his own family to challenge Chandrika Rai. Lalu's son Tejashwi Yadav got Dr. Karishma Rai, daughter of Chandrika Rai's elder brother Vidhanchand Rai, into the RJD. Karishma will challenge Chacha Chandrika Rai in the assembly elections this year. Karishma, who is preparing for the election, is constantly meeting the people of her area.
