New Delhi :
Weeks after launching a new outfit called â€˜Lalu-Rabri Morchaâ€™, Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leader Tej Pratap Yadav - the elder son of jailed party president Lalu Prasad - has announced he will launch his new online platform â€˜Tej Senaâ€™ on Friday.
"Join Tej Sena - an online platform for changemakers. Launching on June 28," 30-year-old former Health Minister of Bihar tweeted.
This is for the second time when the mercurial leader has announced something in the past few months that clearly highlights that all is not well within the family.

Earlier in March, Tej Pratap launched the political outfit, 'Lalu-Rabri Morcha', ahead of Lok Sabha Elections claiming that he felt sidelined in the RJD.
He had expressed dissatisfaction over his younger brother Tejashwi Yadav's decision to not field candidates of his choice from the Sheohar and Jehanabad Lok Sabha. He even campaigned against the RJD and his father-in-law Chandrika Rai in the national elections. He had also threatened to contest against his father-in-law but took a U-turn later.
However, he later rebuffed reports of any rift between him and his brother Tejashwi, the leader of opposition in the Bihar Assembly. "There is no rift between me and my brother. I challenge anyone who can prove that. In fact, my blessings are always with him and I will follow whatever my father tells me to... In fact, I have always stood like a shield whenever someone tried to attack my brother," he had said.
Asked what role he foresaw for himself on the party, Tej Pratap said, "Janta (the people) will decide that and whatever role my father gives me in the party, I will take that one."
