Amit Shah stuck in lift for 40 minutes, Lalu Yadav says he’s too fat to use lift


BJP president, Amit Shah, on Friday remained stuck in an elevator for nearly 40 minutes in Patna. The incident took place in a guest house in Patna while Shah was being accompanied by three of his senior party colleagues.

It may have been an embarrassing and even frustrating experience for the BJP president, but it didn’t stop his political opponents from taking a dig at Shah.

Rashtriya Janata Dal chief Lalu Yadav, who’s pitted against the BJP in what many have called a battle for political survival, was quick to comment.

Lalu quipped, “A man as fat as Amit Shah shouldn’t have entered Patna lift as Bihar lifts are not made to carry such fat people.”

Lalu, who has been quite vocal in his attack against Prime Minister Narendra Modi since the latter announced a special financial package of Rs 1.25 lakh crore for Bihar, had earlier tweeted poking fun at the central government on the weakening value of Indian rupee.

His tweet on Friday afternoon said, ” The value of Indian rupee is degrading and depreciating as low as the value of PM. Why?”

While in opposition, PM Modi, had used similar analogy to launch attack on Congress when rupee lost value against the dollar.

Modi had said, value of rupee and the respect of Congress party seem to be in race with each other as to who stoops new low first.
