sacked from his position recently, has now announced his plans to start afresh
by launching his own venture, reports Business Today.
In a Facebook post on
Wednesday Yadav said,
“If the path is smooth, dig your own
holes. If no challenges, create them on your own. Just for the sake of
practice. Just to push yourself to the extreme. Just to become stronger. Just

Yadav back in his game or will the ‘verbal-wars’ continue? Looks like we will
just have to wait and see which way the cat jumps.
