Patna: LJP President Ram Vilas Paswan's son-in-law Anil Kumar Sadhu broke down with tears rolling down his cheeks, a day after he raised a banner of revolt against him over denial of ticket for the upcoming Bihar Assembly elections.
Sadhu had also announced his decision to field Dalit Sena candidates in all the districts to defeat NDA nominees.
"Honourable Paswan ji has to think, Chirag (Paswan's son) has to think and my mother-in-law, she has to think and see whether she considers me to be her son or not, whether she considers me to be her son-in-law or not. It is upto them whether they own me or discard me. She is a guardian for me even today," Sadhu said in a choked voice while giving an interview to a television channel.
Paswan's furious son-in-law held an emergency meeting of all district presidents of Dalit Sena, of which he is the President, and decided to burn the effigy of Ramvilas Paswan to protest against the way tickets were distributed in the party.
Dalit Sena is an organisation of the weaker sections launched by Ramvilas Paswan.
Sadhu, who wanted to enter the fray from Kutumba (reserved seat in Aurangabad district), was angry over the seat allotted to former chief minister and HAM founder Jitan Ram Manjhi's son Santosh Kumar Suman.
Sadhu said he was not given a ticket though Ramvilas Paswan's younger brother Pashupati Kumar Paras and Prince Raj, son of Ramchandra Paswan, another brother of the LJP chief were given tickets.
"But, my claim has been given a damn despite the fact that I had got 53,000 votes from Masaurhi seat in 2010 elections," Sadhu told PTI on Sunday.
He said his wife would join him in opposing the LJP chief and campaign against NDA nominees across Bihar.
