Lalu's son Tej Pratap Yadav alleges Nitish released ghosts in his bungalow
Tej Pratap Yadav, Bihar's former health minister and the elder son of Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief Lalu Prasad Yadav, has alleged that Bihar CM Nitish Kumar had let lose ghosts in his bungalow to haunt him out.

While talking to reporters in Patna on Sunday, Tej Pratap said, "I decided to vacate the bungalow because Nitish and deputy CM Sushil Kumar Modi had released ghosts in it. The ghosts were haunting me."

Tej Pratap Yadav vacated his official bungalow last week, six moths after he ceased to be Bihar's health minister.

The bungalow located at 3, Deshratna Marg in Patna, had been allotted to Tej Pratap after he had become health minister in the Nitish Kumar-led coalition government following a victory in the October-November 2015 Assembly election.

After almost 20 months, Nitish Kumar parted ways with the RJD and formed an alliance with the BJP on July 27, last year.

The state building construction department (BCD) had sent notices to former RJD and Congress ministers in August last year, asking them to vacate their official bungalows.

Tej's statement does not come as a surprise as reports suggest that he is know for his hyper-religious beliefs and superstition. Sources close to him have revealed that in June last year, a "dushman maaran jaap" (chanting of hymns to eliminate enemies) had been organised at his bungalow while central agencies were busy investigating corruption charges against his family members.

Reportedly, Tej Pratap had also got the bungalow's south-facing gate shut on the advice of vastu experts to prevent bad omen.

Tej decided to vacate the bungalow after receiving a second notice, said RJD spokesperson Shakti Singh Yadav. In the second notice received by Tej last year in October, he had been warned of being heavily penalized amounting to 15 times the rent for his unauthorised stay.

However, BCD minister Maheshwar Hazari said that Tej had not informed the department that he had vacated the bungalow.
