NEW DELHI: Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) president Lalu Prasad on Sunday launched an unusual attack against Prime Minister Narendra Modi, stating that the PM was not a Hindu and is attacking dynasty politics as he does not have a family himself.

Speaking at the Jan Vishwas Maha Rally in Patna, Lalu lambasted the PM for criticising “parivarvad (dynastic rule)” in politics and spreading hatred.

In a video, which is being widely shared on social media, Lalu is heard saying: “Kya hai Modi? Koi cheez hai kya? Ye Narendra Modi parivarvaad par hamla kar rha hai. Tum batao tumko kyu koi santan nahi hua. Zyada santan hone wale logon ko bolta hai ki pariwarwad hai, pariwar ke lie ye log lad rhe hai. (What is the matter PM Modi? Is there an issue? Why are you attacking dynastic politics? Tell us why you don’t have any family. The PM accuses people with big families of dynastic politics but we are only fighting for our families).”

Known for pulling no punches, the RJD supremo goes on to say, “What can we do if Narendra Modi does not have a family of his own? He keeps bragging about the Ram temple.”
Lalu further alleged that the PM was not even a Hindu. “He is not even a true Hindu. In Hindu tradition, a son must get his head and beard shaved upon the demise of his parent. Modi did not do so when his mother died.”
The senior politician then signed off his speech in style, asking the crowds to “be prepared for the upcoming elections. I will be there to boost your morale as you vote to drive out PM Modi from power at the Centre”.
INDIA sounds poll bugle
The opposition bloc INDIA virtually sounded the bugle for the upcoming Lok Sabha polls on Sunday when top leaders, including Rahul Gandhi of the Congress, converged in the Bihar capital for a mammoth rally. Gandhi, who had flown down from Madhya Pradesh, taking a break from his ‘Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra’, spoke before handing over the mic to AICC president Mallikarjun Kharge and returning for the mass outreach programme.

The former Congress president made a brief, about 15-minute-long, speech and charged the Narendra Modi government at the Centre with “working for only two-three super-rich people and neglecting Dalits and backward classes who comprise 73 per cent of the population”.
Kharge, after whom the ‘Jan Vishwas Maha Rally’ was signed off by RJD president Lalu Prasad, lambasted Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar for his recent volte-face.
