Patna: Reacting strongly to accusations made in Lalu Prasad Yadav’s autobiography written allegedly from his jail cell, Janata Dal – U spokesperson Sanjay Singh said that the title of the book, instead of ‘From Gopalganj to Raisina’, should have been ‘From Gopalganj to Raisina Via Hotwar’ to be more relevant and factual.
Incidentally, Hotwar is the name of the jail in Ranchi in Jharkhand where the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief is doing time for his conviction in a host of cases related to fodder scam.
Speaking at a press conference in Patna on Sunday, Singh said that the writer of the book should have explained why Lalu Prasad Yadav was lodged in the jail. He should have also described how the fodder for animals that he stole and ate tasted in his mouth, he said.
As reported, Yadav, in his book states that less than six months after Nitish Kumar walked out of the Grand Alliance in Bihar, he approached him and pleaded to take him back into the Grand Alliance fold but he rejected his appeal without even giving it a second thought.
“Who believes anything this man has to say when he is a convicted criminal serving time in jail? Lalu’s ‘fame’ is not known only in Bihar but in the whole of India,” the JD-U leader said.BLOG COMMENTS POWERED BY DISQUS
