Lalus monkey business

The debate on FDI in multi-brand retail became more dramatic following the entry of Rashtriya Janata Dal leader Lalu Prasad Yadav, who is known for his puns, rhetoric and antics. On most occasions, he amuses both his allies and the opposition with his speech. But today it wasnt amusing at all for the BJP members. Lok Sabha proceedings were disrupted for 15 minutes after Lalu called an opposition member Jamure (a monkey who dances to the commands of a street charmer), which prompted loud protests from the opposition parties, who termed the word unparliamentary.
