PATNA - Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief Lalu Prasad’s brothers-in-law Sadhu Yadav and Subhash Yadav bit the dust Wednesday in the Bihar assembly elections.
Sadhu contested for the Gopalganj assembly seat on a Congress ticket, while Subhash fought from Bikram assembly constituency as an independent.
Subhash, the youngest of Lalu’s three brothers-in-law, left RJD just before the polls as he was denied a party ticket.
“He felt he was being sidelined,” a party leader said.
Sadhu, alias Anirudh Prasad Yadav, deserted RJD last year and joined the Congress. He had earlier lost the Lok Sabha polls as well.
Lalu’s wife and former Bihar chief minister Rabri Devi too lost the election for both Raghopur and Sonepur assembly seats.
