Fresh row between Tej Pratap-Tejashwi over removal of youth wing leader


Patna, Aug 19 | The fight between Tejashwi Yadav and his brother Tej Pratap escalated in Bihar’s Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) after state party president Jagadanand Singh sacked youth wing state head, Akash Yadav, creating yet another crisis in the state unit.

Tejashwi Yadav, the leader of opposition in Bihar Assembly, said on Thursday that the party national president Lalu Prasad will sort out all the issues.

“There is no such issue among leaders in the party. If he (Tej Pratap Yadav) is not happy with any other leader of the party, our national president Lalu Prasad Yadav will sort out the problems,” Tejashwi said in Patna on Thursday.

“Every leader has a different way of thinking. Accordingly, they put their view point before the party’s top leadership. The differences between the two leaders will be sorted out soon. Nothing to worry about,” Tejashwi said.

Meanwhile, Tej Pratap Yadav has levelled more serious allegations against state president Jagadanand Singh when he said that the removal of Akash Yadav from the post of state youth wing president is unconstitutional.

“Jagadanand Singh may be the senior leader of Bihar but he does not have any knowledge of the RJD constitution. As per the constitution of the party, the top leadership first gives notice to leaders and asks for his/her explanation before taking action. In the case of Akash Yadav, Jagadanand Singh has not given him any notice and sacked him,” Tej Pratap said.

“Jagadanand Singh has taken advice from someone before sacking Akash Yadav,” Tej Pratap said, but did not specify who that advisor could be. Sources have said that he was referring to Tejashwi Yadav without taking his name.

Jagdanand Singh on Wednesday met with Tejashwi Yadav for half an hour. After the meeting, Singh returned to the party office and appointed Gagan Kumar to replace Akash Yadav as the state president of the RJD students wing.

Furious Tej Pratap said that the party national president Lalu Prasad gave him the responsibility to strengthen the RJD youth wing. “How Jagadanand Singh could sack a poor Akash Yadav from the post of state youth wing president,” he questioned.

Tej Pratap further also said that Jagadanand Singh is ‘a coward’ who does not have the guts and capacity to take action against him.

“In a bid to achieve political goal, Jagadanand Singh made Akash Yadav a scapegoat. If he has guts, why doesn’t he take action against me. Jagadanand Singh has become desperate now and he may kill me in future,” Tej Pratap Singh said.

Does MBA really help in getting a better job offer ?

Does MBA really help in getting a better job offer ?

Most students pursuing an MBA come with the sole objective of having a decent job offer or a promotion in the existing job soon after completion of the MBA. And most of them take loans to pursue this career dream. According to a recent survey by education portal  74% MBA 2022-24 aspirants said they would opt for education loans.

There are exceptional cases like those seeking master’s degree or may have a family business to take care of or an entrepreneurial venture in mind. But the exception cases are barely 1%. For the rest 99%, a management degree is a ticket to a dream job through campus placements or leap towards career enhancements. Stakes are high as many of them quit their jobs which essentially means loss of 2 years of income, apprehension and uncertainty of the job market. On top of that, the pressure to pay back the education loans. Hence the returns have to be high. There is more than just the management degree. Colleges need to ensure that they offer quality management education which enables them to be prepared for not just the demands of recruiters and for a decent job but also to sustain and achieve, all along their career path.

  • So, what exactly are the B Schools doing to prepare their students for the job market and make them industry ready ?
  •  Are B schools ready to deliver and prepare the future business leaders to cope up with the disrupted market ?  

These are the two key questions every MBA aspirant needs to ask, check and validate before filling the MBA application forms of management institutes. And worth mentioning that these application forms do not come cheap. An MBA aspirant who may have shortlisted 5 B Schools to apply for, may end up spending Rs 10,000.00 to Rs 15,000.00 just buying MBA / PGDM application forms.

While internship and placements data of some management institutes clearly indicates that recruiters today have specific demands. The skill sets looked for are job centric and industry oriented. MBA schools which have adopted new models of delivery and technology, redesigned their courses, built an effective evaluation process and prepared the students to cope with the dynamic business scenario, have done great with campus placements despite the economic slow down.

However, the skill set being looked for by a consulting company like Deloitte or KPMG may be quite different from FMCG or a manufacturing sector. Institutes need to acknowledge this fact and act accordingly.

  • Management institutes should ensure that students are intellectually engaged, self motivated and adapt to changes fast. In one word ‘VUCA ready’.
  • B Schools should encourage students to participate in national and international competitive events, simulations of business scenarios.
  • Institutes should have the right mix of faculty members with industry exposure and pure academics.

The placement records of 2021 across top management institutes indicated the fact that recruitment is happening, skilled talent is in demand and certain management institutions continued to attract recruiters even in the middle of an ongoing crisis.

It is time, all management institutes rise to the occasion, understand market realities and identify areas of improvement at both ends – students and faculty.

After all, the stakes are high at both ends. B Schools taking corrective measures will stay while those which are lagging will end up shutting down.
