Lalu loyalist Ram Kripal quits party posts over ticket row
Upset over denial of ticket from Patliputra Lok Sabha seat, RJD leader Ram Kripal Yadav, a close aide of Lalu Prasad, today quit from all party posts but said he was in the party "as of now". Addressing a press conference two days after RJD named Lalu's daughter Misa Bharti as candidate from Patliputra in Bihar, he disputed his party chief's version that he had not expressed his inclination to contest from the seat. Referring to Misa Bharti's visit to his home here yesterday and staying put for five hours in a bid to persuade him, he said it was an attempt at "emotional blackmail". Yadav, currently a Rajya Sabha member and a three-time Lok Sabha MP from Patna, said he was still in the party and has not quit Rajya Sabha. He said the party, which was born to uphold the principles of social justice, now appeared to be interested in "family justice".

Bihars ruling JD(U) and the BJP are eyeing to rope in two top confidants of RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav Ram Kripal Yadav and Ghulam Gous who have displayed ample signs of rebellion after being denied party tickets for the Lok Sabha polls. Apart from these two leaders, at least three other RJD leaders are also actively thinking of quitting the party because their demand for LS tickets were brushed off by Mr Yadav, who reportedly finalised the list of 25 candidates without consulting his senior party colleagues.

Ramkirpal relents to Misa?s request, ready to contest from Patliputra
Ramkirpal, the man Friday of Lalu Prasad who is angry on denial of ticket from Patliputra, said that he has accepted Misa's request to contest on RJD ticket, instead of her, from the constituency in Patna district. "But, this would have to be announced by RJD chief Lalu Prasad himself," he said. Ramkirpal Yadav, who is presently Rajya Sabha MP, said that he was feeling ‘sorry’ that he could not meet Lalu's daughter Misa Bharti, who waited for her 'uncle' at his Delhi residence for nearly five hours. "But, later I had a talk with her over phone in which I agreed to her request that I shall contest from Patliputra seat," he said. Misa had rushed to Delhi to meet Ramkirpal Yadav, who is also party general secretary, after reports that he was seeking an entry into BJP on being denied ticket from Pataliputra. Misa, the eldest daughter of Prasad and an MBBS degree holder, had earlier said that she was not aware that Yadav was interested in contesting from Pataliputra. Lalu Prasad Yadav on Friday announced Misa's name for Pataliputra from which he had lost in 2009 elections. Misa had said that if fighting from Patliputra seat is an issue she would leave it for Ramkirpal and campaign for him. While Lalu's wife Rabri Devi had described the incident as ‘fight within family’, the RJD president feigned ignorance about the reason of Yadav's anger. "Whether it is over ticket or is being instigated by others to protest," Rabri said. The RJD supremo said that he was confident that Ramkirpal would not ‘ruin’ his life and career by leaving the party. "Two years of his term in Rajya Sabha were still left. He never staked a claim for Pataliputra seat before me," Lalu added. Sources said that RJD legislature party leader in council Gulam Gaus was also angry after being denied ticket from Bettiah seat. Meanwhile, RJD has removed Ramkirpal's close aide Randhir Yadav from the post of state party spokesman. (Agencies) Latest News from Bihar News Desk
