Tejashwi Yadav, cricket politician, is the political heir to Lalu Yadav, the veteran leader of Bihar, and has been managing party affairs for many years now.
Once the deputy of his father’s liberal enemy, Nitish Kumar, he spent more than two years as the Opposition Leader of Bihar as Mr Kumar concluded the Grand Coalition with Parliament and Mr Yadav’s Rashtriya Janata Dal, citing corruption cases against him.
But over the past months, both sides have rectified and today, he is sworn in, is back as Mr. Kumar’s Deputy in Bihar once again.
Such ups and downs, however, have not gone the way of Mr. Rama Rao, or KTR, as his supporters call him.
The son of Telangana’s First Minister, Mr Rama Rao has been handling the party affairs of Telangana Rashtra Samithi as its Affairs Chairman since December 2018.
He is also in charge of IT, Industry and Commercial Portfolio in his father’s government, which he has been involved in since Telangana became state.
The scramble between the heirs of the country’s two prominent political families reflects the slow coming together of opposition parties ahead of the 2024 general election.
Mr. Rao’s senior has been working towards a non-Congressional, non-BJP coalition since before the 2019 general election, which has not materialized so far.
Mr Yadav’s boss, Nitish Kumar, is said to have his eye on leading the opposition in the 2024 general election.
The BJP has announced that he wants to be Prime Minister and has broken their alliance for the second time because of his national ambitions.
