Lalu Prasad Yadav’s dig at PM Modi’s Patna rally: I attract more people when I stop my car at paan shop


Former Bihar Chief Minister Lalu Prasad Yadav on Sunday took a potshot at Prime Minister Narendra Modi for the poor turnout at his election rally in Patna. The veteran RJD leader said that he attracted more people at a paan shop than the number of people had gathered to hear Modi.

He tweeted, “I attract more people when I stop my car at a paan shop than the number of people, who had been brought to Gandhi Maidan by using the government machinery with  months of combined efforts of Narendra Modi, Nitish (Kumar) and (Ram Vilas) Paswan ji.” He also taunted the NDA leaders including Modi for faking the crowd by zooming the camera.

Yadav also mocked Modi for reading his Hindi speech from a teleprompter. He wrote, “Bihar’s law abiding citizens have shown Modi his place. One can speak any amount of lies when his schemes have failed. He can also resort to fake promises. His confidence is so shaken by the prospect of losing in Bihar that he now has to speak even in Hindi by using a teleprompter.”

Modi in Patna made desperate attempts to woo Muslim voters by informing them how he had managed to convince the Saudi government to increase the quota for Indian Hajj pilgrims to 2 lakh annually.
