Describing her brother as an enemy, Rabri Devi said there is no brother or sister but only rival in a poll battle on Wednesday. Her comments came a day after Sadhu Yadav announced that he will contest the Lok Sabha polls from Saran.

"There cannot be any agreement with an enemy. Saran's people will teach him a hard lesson in polls," she said before leaving for campaigning in Saran.

Rabri's younger son Tejasvi Yadav, who is one of the star campaigners of RJD, said Sadhu Yadav is his maternal uncle but he is doing a big mistake by contesting against his mother.

"People will not only defeat him, he will loss his deposit in the polls. Only result will prove it," he said.

Sadhu, who is Lalu's brother-in-law, earlier said he will contest the polls from Saran to challenge candidates of mainstream political parties, who have neglected its development.

Lalu had, however, said that there will be no impact of Sadhu in fray from Saran.

“He is not an issue for us," Lalu said in Patna.

Sadhu Yadav was a powerful leader during the RJD rule in Bihar. Rabri Devi was fielded by RJD in Saran from where Lalu Prasad won in 2009. But he had to quit after being convicted in a multi-crore fodder scam case last year.

Sadhu desertedthe  RJD five years ago and joined the Congress. Later, he quit the Congress.

The BJP has fielded Rajiv Pratap Rudy from Saran.
