Patna: Former Bihar Chief Minister and former RJD Chief Lalu Prasad Yadav wants to contest in the upcoming Presidential election, firm in his belief that there must be a Bihari in the contest. Lalu Prasad Yadav claims to have already booked a flight ticket to Delhi where he proposes to file his nomination papers on June 15th.

He had filed his nomination papers in 2017 as well when the contest was between the then Bihar Governor Ram Nath Kovind, who went on to win and former Lok Sabha Speaker Meira Kumar, who was also a native of the soil. My papers got rejected last time since these were not endorsed by an adequate number of proposers. This time, I am better prepared, Lalu said.

I keep trying my luck, from Panchayat to Presidentship. If nothing else, I may come to hold the record for contesting the maximum number of elections, he said with a deadpan expression.
