Tejaswi issues WhatsApp number to improve roads but ends up getting personal messages from women

Patna: In a bid to improve the condition of roads in Bihar, deputy chief minister Tejaswi Yadav, few days back, issued a WhatsApp number 9470001346 of the state road construction ministry which meant to assist the citizens of Bihar and allow them to send the images of bad roads for repair. But to his surprise, women started sending personal messages to the young deputy CM instead of the pictures of bad roads.

The number is believed to be Tejaswi yadav's personal one.

“Hundreds of personal messages for Tejaswi Yadav landed in the WhatApp number in the last two weeks,” an official of the road construction department said.

Yadav jokingly said that such personal messages could have landed him into deep trouble had he been married. “Thank God, I am still single,” he reportedly said, according to a ministry official.

26-year-old Yadav -- son of RJD supremo Lalu Prasad -- is said to be one of the most high-profile bachelors in Bihar along with his elder brother Tej Pratap, who is Bihar’s health minister.

Yadav had earlier used social media platform to help the residents of Bihar. Last December, he helped an engineering student from Sitamarhi district to get his pending scholarship. The student had complained to Yadav through Facebook that he was not getting the scholarship which was due to him.

Yadav had then directed concerned officials to look into the complaint and ensure that the youth received the scholarship money.
