Lalu Prasad may have been convicted by a CBI court in the multi-crore fodder scam, but Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief has always managed to be the nation’s official rib tickler. He is someone who is known for making outrageous statements.
Today, we bring to you 10 quotes by Lalu Prasad Yadav that reveals the funnier side of the politician. You may want to give these quotes a read, quotes that are some awesome comebacks by the man himself.
When Lalu compared his sentiments about poor roads to BJP’s Hema Malini
“I will make Bihar’s roads as smooth as Hema Malini’s cheeks.”
When he called Modi ‘Brahma Pishach’ (Ghost)
In 2015, during Bihar’s election campaign, Lalu Prasad trolled Prime Minister Narendra Modi. He referred Modi a ‘Brahma Pishach’ and said “Modi is a brahm pisach and he needs to be chased away with black magic”.
On BJP President Amit Shah
He also called Amit Shah a ‘Narbhakshi’ meaning man-eater.
On Hema Malini
A journalist once said Yadav that Hema Malini was his fan, to which he replied, “If Hema Malini is my fan, I am her air conditioner.”
Lalu can be brutally honest sometimes.
In 2015, Amit Shah and other BJP leaders were trapped inside the state guest house in Patna for around 40 minutes. Talking about the incident, he said, “A man as fat as Amit Shah shouldn’t have entered the lift. Lifts in Bihar are small and not made to carry such fat people.”
Taking a jibe at right-wing forces in his cheeky style, Lalu said-
“Those who talk of gauraksha, keep dogs as pets instead of cows. You do know who these people are, don’t you?”
Upon handling the railway portfolio in the UPA government-
‘My mother always told me not to handle a buffalo by its tail, but always catch it by its horns. And I have used that lesson in everything in my life, including the Railways.’
Amazed by Anna Hazare’s capability of being on hunger strike for days, Lalu said-
“Doctors should conduct a research on Anna ji and tell us what we should eat to be able to sit on a fast unto death at such an old age for 12 days.”
Sometimes, Lalu‘s jokes can also catch you off guard.
“If Hema Malini is my fan, then I am her air conditioner.”
The best reply to his competitors he gave was-
“Jab tak samose mein rahega aalu, Bihar mei rahega Lalu.”
Do you think he should take up stand-up comedy as a side profession?
