Patna: Bihar strongman Lalu Prasad`s 20
year-old son and his heir apparent Tejaswi Yadav debuted in
politics at an election meeting at sprawling Gandhi Maidan
here, wherein he harped on the magic of his charismatic
father.

``My father`s magic made Railways achieve a turn-around,
he will change the face of Bihar after coming to power,``
Tejaswi told an election meeting here last evening.

The youngster, who was quick to add that he was
``undergoing political training at this stage,`` launched a
scathing attack on Chief Minister Nitish Kumar saying it was
unfortunate that the flow of funds which Prasad had arranged
from the Centre for the development of the state had not been
``properly utilised.``

Tejaswi also slammed erstwhile NDA government led by Atal
Bihari Vajpayee for meting out step-motherly treatment to
Bihar when his mother Rabri Devi was chief minister.

He said he would work as a bridge between his parents and
the people and work to serve the society.

Tejaswi joined his father at the historic Gandhi Maidan
to address a meeting while campaigning for Prasad`s aide
Vinod Kumar Srivastava from Bankipore assembly seat.
