The son of RJD leader Lalu Yadav has started a new stint in politics after a short stint in Indian Premier League. Tejaswi Yadav, who was squad member of Delhi Daredevil, has taken oath as deputy chief minister of Bihar on Friday.
He was elected from Raghoupur Vuidhan Sabha (assembly seat) of Bihar. Tejaswi is the youngest child of nine hails from a family that has been in politics for the years.
The son of the former chief minister of Bihar Lalu Yadav, Tejaswi had made a name for himself in his youth as a cricketer with abilities (not that he is old now). He got selected for the Indian Premier League franchise Delhi Daredevils in 2009.
Tejaswi did not have an illustrious career. He played one first-class game, two List A matches and four T20s. It was believed that he was paid around 3 to 4 million by the Delhi IPL franchise.
But, Tejaswi left cricket to fight for the common people. However, after his short stint in cricket he could be the next big man in the Bihar’s political canvas.
The Delhi Public School student certainly will have to shoulder great expectation from cricket fans as Bihar Cricket Association is not recognized by the BCCI which jeopardise the career many aspiring cricketers from the state.
