Tejaswi, younger son of Lalu Prasad Yadav and Rabri Devi, on Saturday made his debut political speech, asking for people's blessings for himself and votes for his mother, soon after she filed her nomination papers from Sonepur and Raghopur.
"Please give me confidence. I will start my political career at the right time. I am here just to seek your blessings. I will again come back to you with more confidence and preparation," said Tejaswi, adding that it was the duty of the people to ensure Rabri's victory from Sonepur. The audience cheered his stress on "Sonepur ki candidate".
Tejaswi, 20, was received with applause after he was invited to speak at Sonepur. When the audience urged him to speak more, he said it would be better for them to listen to veterans like his father and Raghuvansh Prasad Singh.
Since his mother was contesting from two seats, he would anyway spend more time with the people of Sonepur in the coming days, he added.
In his typical style, Lalu said: "Tejaswi party ka prachar aur mummy ka prachar karega aur yuvaon se milega (Tejaswi will campaign for the party and his mother, and will mingle with Sonepur youths)."
Rabri also addressed the public after a long time. "I seek your precious votes. I am doubly confident of my victory," she added.
