RJD leader Tej Pratap Yadav has alleged that his Facebook account was "hacked" by the BJP-RSS to create a rift in his family and weaken his party. "My Facebook account was hacked and recovered with the help of Facebook. BJP supporters have always tried to hack my social media accounts and today they succeeded," he said on Monday night in a post on the social media site.

The former state minister's remarks came almost an hour after a post had appeared on his page suggesting that he was upset with some leaders of his party, including an MLC, and that his parents — RJD supremo Lalu Prasad and national vice-president Rabri Devi —were turning a deaf ear to his complaints.

"Upon hacking of my FB account they came up with a post aimed at creating a rift within my family and weakening our party. Some time ago, an RSS supporter had also hacked my father's Facebook page," he said in his post.
