Yadav said Ranveer was a fiesty leader and has been a staunch supporter of Kumar and helped him when NDA formed its government for the first time in Bihar in February 2005, he told reporters here.
"I have known Ranveer and his family for decades and worked closely with the latter's uncle Ramsharan Yadav, a three-term MP," he said and sidestepped a question when asked whether he approved of Yadav's conduct.
Earlier, Khagaria police had cleared Yadav for snatching an automatic rifle from a policeman and firing in the air to disperse protesters during Kumar's 'Adhikar yatra' in Khagaria on September 27 which was marred by largescale violence and arson by the protesters, including contractual teachers.
He had also credited Yadav and his wife for his reaching the venue of public meeting that day.
