Controversies• In November 2015, Tej Pratap and his brother Tejasvi attached their affidavits with their nomination papers for the legislative elections. But, the education certificates attached ignited controversy as according to the affidavits, Tej Pratap passed intermediate in 2010, whereas, Tejaswi passed Class 9 in 2006, which meant that Tej Pratap was 25 years old, and Tejaswi was 26. It completely changed the equation of their age, as according to it, Tej Pratap was younger than Tejaswi, which was incorrect.
• On 13 May 2016, journalist Rajdeo Ranjan was shot to death by unknown attackers in a bike, near the crowded Station Road at Siwan, Bihar. After the murder, Ranjan's wife had filed a case alleging Tej Pratap was part of the murder's conspiracy. The Supreme Court had asked the CBI to investigate after Tej Pratap was seen in a picture with criminal-politician Mohammad Shahabuddin's aide, Mohammad Kaif. In September 2016, the Supreme Court sent notices to Tej Pratap Yadav and Shahabuddin, but in March 2018, the Supreme Court acquitted Tej Pratap and Shahabuddin due to lack of evidence.
