Rashtriya Janata Dal leader and former Deputy Chief Minister of Bihar, Tejashwi Yadav, is getting social media booster ahead of his party’s 26th August rally scheduled in state capital Patna. A hashtag – ‘BahubaliTejashwi’ – is trending on Twitter with scores of people, probably the supporters of RJD, expressing their confidence in the young leader. Hashtag started soon after some of the party workers have put out poster projecting Tejashwi as “Baahubali”– a strongman who can save Bihar, as per Aaj Tak. ‘#BahubaliTejashwi’ was the 5th top trending hashtag across India at the time of writing this news piece. However, on the other hand, the rally has witnessed a number of setbacks way before being held in the Patna. The rally, aimed to display opposition unity, has been snubbed by BSP supremo Mayawati and Congress chief Sonia Gandhi. NDTV reports that Rahul and Sonia may prefer to skip the rally hosted by Lalu Yadav family, due to the corruption charges they face.

While on the other hand, Mayawati denied attending the rally, probably to avert sharing stage with Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav, her arch rival in the home state of Uttar Pradesh. Speaking on her decision to skip the rally, Mayawati told ANI, “BSP has clearly told the RJD that it will share the dais with any regional or national party only when it is decided beforehand on how many seats will go to which party in the secular alliance…Before finalising any secular programme the policy and principle of seat sharing should be decided (first) as the life of an alliance is dependent on it and all should get a respectable number of seats.”

However, on Wednesday, Lalu Yadav had told media that BSP leader Satish Mishra will attend the rally. “I had a talk with Mayawati. She said senior BSP leader Satish Mishra would come for the rally,” he had told reporters. The talks of a ‘joint opposition’ had picked up the pace soon after JD(U) chief Nitish Kumar called off his party’s ties with the RJD and the Congress. Kumar quit as Bihar chief minister, only to sworn-in again the next day with support from BJP.
