Posters on ‘missing’ Tejashwi Yadav come up in encephalitis-hit Muzaffarpur

Patna:  Posters declaring opposition RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav as “missing” have come up in Bihar’s Muzaffarpur where 121 children have died due to Acute Encephalitis Syndrome (AES).

The posters in Hindi also announced a “reward” of Rs 5,100 for anyone who locates Yadav whose picture is also included.

Yadav, a former Bihar Deputy Chief Minister, is yet to visit Muzaffarpur even as his party was routed in last month’s Lok Sabha polls.

It was expected that as opposition leader Yadav would have visited Muzaffarpur to meet children undergoing treatment in hospitals and their parents to express sympathy in their time of crisis.

However, some RJD leaders said here that Yadav will return to Patna by next week and others said that he was in Delhi. There are reports that he is abroad.
