Mocking animal rights group PETA for challenging his plan to take out a procession with 1,000 horse carts ahead of the Assembly polls in Bihar, Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief Lalu Prasad Yadav on Saturday said he will take out 50, 000 such processions.
“PETA! What will it do? …I can’t take out (horse-carts procession)? Who is this (PETA)? I will take out 50,000 such processions,” Lalu told media persons here.
People for Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) had earlier reportedly sought the Election Commission’s intervention against the use of animals in RJD’s election campaign, which was meant to counter the BJP’s high-tech Raths (vehicles) and woo voters.
