“Before coming to politics, my background was of a pilot. I had applied to join Indian Air Force and was selected too. I have also done two years of training from Bihar Flying Institute…Cessna 172 was my aircraft. There was an instructor Captain Surya Pratap and he used to train me. I used to fly aircraft. It was my childhood passion to join the Indian Army. I have my ID card of that, all documents, my medical test was also done, I have kept all these things. ‘Captain’ is a prefix to my name but I don’t use it. Many people don’t know, if you go to the airport of the flying institute, many old personnel there will tell you that Bhaiya (Tej Pratap) used to come here to fly aircraft,” Tej Pratap was heard claiming in the viral video.
Tej Pratap is working to strengthen his new organisation amid the Bihar bypolls and is said to have working to defeat the RJD candidates. He recently slammed the party for dropping his mother Rabri Devi’s name from the list of star campaigners.

He further said that the people of Bihar won’t forgive the party for this mistake.
ऐ अँधेरे देख ले मुँह तेरा काला हो गया
माँ ने आँखें खोल दीं घर में उजाला हो गया…
मेरा नाम रहता ना रहता मां और दीदी का नाम रहना चाहिए था…
इस गलती के लिए बिहार की महिलाएं कभी माफ नहीं करेगीं,दशहरा में हम मां की ही अराधना करतें हैं ना जी…???????? pic.twitter.com/SpfImByK4C

Tej Pratap also slammed Tejashwi Yadav’s political advisor Sanjay Yadav. “Respected Tej Pratap Yadav ji will campaign for me in the election, says Sanjay Yadav. Sanjay Yadav ji had withdrawn his candidature for the public, says party. Neither I said nor wrote anything, so what was my role in this? Haryanvi scriptwriter, you should write this useless C-grade story somewhere else, Bihari understands everything,” said Tej Pratap hitting out at Sanjay Yadav who hails from Haryana and is said to be related to Lalu Yadav’s family.
मेरे लिए चुनाव में आदरणीय तेजप्रताप यादव जी प्रचार करेंगें-संजय यादव,
जनता के लिए संजय यादव जी ने अपनी उम्मीदवारी वापिस ली-पार्टी,
ना मैंने कुछ कहा ना लिखा तो इसमें मेरा क्या रोल था या है?
हरियाणवी स्क्रीट राईटर तुम ये फालतू की सी ग्रेड कहानी कहीं और लिखना।
बिहारी सब समझतें हैं।
