Patna: Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief Lalu Prasad Yadav, while celebrating the birth anniversary of Dr. B. R. Ambedkar at party office in Patna on Thursday, chose to take cheap shots at Prime Minister Narendra Modi saying the PM was sworn-in at the dusk time which was clearly bad omen for the nation.
"Things are happening in the nation that had not happened before. People are dying in temple fires, cases of drought and fire have gone up many fold since Modi became the Prime Minister," Yadav said.
The RJD leader, talking about the Grand Alliance government in Bihar, said that the Nitish administration was under no threat from inside or outside and was here to stay.
"Some people are saying that I will not allow the government to run smoothly. These people are mistaken. Nitish government is here to stay and my party would give full cooperation to it," he said.
Yadav, supporting the government's decision to impose ban on the sale and consumption of alcoholic drink, called the idea of prohibition 'revolutionary'. He, however, favored 'conditional' ban on the sale of toddy saying those who wanted to imbibe in toddy could go to the toddy field, drink it fresh from the tree in the form of 'Neera' and that would be perfectly fine with him.BLOG COMMENTS POWERED BY DISQUS
