Brimming with joy, Yadav, a fifth time Lok Sabha member now, points out that both of them had achieved the distinction in the 2004 general elections as well, becoming the only couple then to enter the Lok Sabha.
While Yadav won from Madhepura LS constituency on a Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) ticket this time trouncing JD (U) national president Sharad Yadav by over 56,000 votes, Ranjeet clinched the Supaul seat as a Congress candidate defeating JD (U) rival Dileshwar Kamait by around 60,000 votes.
When asked about his compatibility with his wife inside the Parliament as both of them belong to different parties he laughs saying, "Our ideologies or path may be different but our aim is one. Old experience will come in handy in running the household, as well as, meeting in the Lok Sabha."
