Taking a potshot at PM Narendra Modi’s Sankalp Rally at Gandhi Maidan in Patna, RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav on Sunday, March 3, said that he could have attracted a similar crowd if he had stopped by a paan (betel) shop.
Lalu Prasad who is serving sentences in fodder scam cases and is at the moment lodged in a Ranchi hospital for treatment, said PM Modi, Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and LJP Chief and Union Minister Ram Vilas Paswan had together failed to pull in people despite having government machinery and resources at their disposal.
“Narendra Modi, Nitish and Paswan have worked for several months to organise the rally at Gandhi Maidan using government machinery. The number of people the rally has attracted is similar to the gathering I could have attracted if I stopped at a roadside paan (betel) shop,” Lalu said in a tweet.
RJD Chief also said that the organisers of the rally used clever camera movements, magnified images and optics to show a large crowd at the PM’s rally.
“The great, justice-loving citizenry of Bihar has shown BJP its true position. In the face of his failed plans, a man resorts to lies and gimmicks. The fear of BJP’s possible defeat has shaken the confidence of the party to such an extent that their leaders need a speech teleprompter to speak even in Hindi,” Lalu tweeted.
