RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav made a strong attack on PM Narendra Modi's 'Ganga remark' on his visit to Varanasi on Monday.
RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav made a strong attack on PM Narendra Modi’s ‘Ganga remark’ (Main khud nahi aya, Maa Ganga ne bulaya tha) on his visit to Varanasi on Monday. During the Lok Sabha polls in 2014, the PM had also said the same thing – “Maa (river) Ganga called me to Varanasi”. Taking a despicable jibe at PM’s comment, Lalu today said that Ganga only calls someone when he is dead. Lalu Yadav was in Varanasi on the day to campaign for Samajwadi Party-Congress alliance for the ongoing assembly elections. During the day, Lalu Yadav made public meetings and interacted with his as well as the alliance’s office bearers. He listened to the issues of residents of the temple town and tried to woo them to vote for SP-Congress alliance.
The 68-year-old RJD leader also surprised everyone by calling himself “young.” The leader when asked by NDTV about the absence of Mulayam Singh Yadav in the campaigning in Varanasi, he said, “We have blessings of Netaji (Mulayam Singh) and as far as campaigning is concerned, we young people are here for this.”
