However, it’s the youngest of the three, Subhash Yadav, who is the rising star of the "sala party". He is a nominated member of the State’s Upper House.Subhash Yadav, considered a strongman in the RJD and one of the most resourceful poll strategists in the party, could have a detrimental impact on the RJD’s performance in Bihar’s October–November Assembly polls.The broadside this time is coming from his favourite 'sala' Subhash Yadav who enjoyed a close relationship with his 'jija'.Subhash has decided to have a crack at the RJD leadership. Subhash had a big role to play in the ticket distribution during the last Assembly election. But this time, he is marginalised as Lalu feels may harm RJD's electoral prospects.Insiders have it that he is lobbying for a party nomination from either Patna or Arrah. He is utilising his image of the loving younger brother to get elder sister Rabri Devi to present his case before ‘Sahab’.
The allotment of 3, Deshratan Margto water resources minister Vijay Kumar Choudhary as his official residence, according to the JD (U) insiders, is his symbolic rise in power. "The sprawling official bungalow has been the residence for the virtual number two in the cabinet and is located near the chief minister’s office and residence. It was the residence of former Union minister Raghunath Jha, when he used to be acknowledged as number two in Lalu Prasad’s cabinet in the early 1990s." said a JD (U) leader. incidentally, the residence was taken over by Subhash Prasad Yadav — the younger brother-in-law of Lalu, when Jha decided to part ways with the RJD chief in the mid-90s. Even then there was intense one-upmanship between Sadhu (the elder brother-in-law) and Subhash to establish themselves as the "most powerful" sala. Subhash, who was just a first-term MLC, got the important landmark and emerged as the closer and more powerful sala. Subhash Yadav, who was in the news in March for almost swooping on vice-president A.H. Ansari to snatch away copies of the Women’S Reservation Bill and tear them apart during its presentation in the Rajya Sabha, was unhappy ever since the RJD decided not to nominate him for another term in the Upper House in June. The RJD boss, a rigid opponent of the bill, was clearly unimpressed by such antics of Subhash Yadav.Laloo Yadav can disown his political allies but not his "salas", because, they are brothers of the Chief Minister.

Subhash Prasad Yadav an active member of the ruling RJD along with the party workers spent at least a month to put the crowd together for the LATHI RALLY which eventually emerged as a success when Five hundred thousand lathis glistened in the midday sun.The entire Cabinet, along with the two rising stars in the RJD, Anirudh Prasad Yadav alias Sadhu Yadav (an MLA) and Subhash Yadav an MLC, who are both Chief Minister Rabri Devi's brothers,travelled across Bihar for weeks to exhort the RJD's rank and file to reach Patna on 30 April and to impress upon them the significance of carrying a lathi to Patna.
The arrangements for 30 April were not restricted to transport. The sprawling lawns of the official residences of the Ministers and important legislators such as Sadhu Yadav and Subhash Yadav were converted into camps for the rallyists and huge shamianas were erected all over. They vied with each other in making such arrangements.The most colourful camp, however, was the one at Subhash Yadav's residence. Subhash Yadav along with Sadhu Yadav are the two most powerful persons in the Bihar context now after Laloo Yadav himself. This, after all, was one way to display both their clout and their loyalty to the leader. During the days before the rally, Laloo Yadav himself was busy visiting each of the premises and assessing the level of commitment of his chieftains. The size of the tents, the mattresses laid out in them and, most important, the dishes spread for the rallyists, were all scrutinised.
