Jailed RJD supremo Lalu Prasad Yadav on Saturday shared a Dubsmash video on Twitter to insult Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). He tried to induce humour to the heated up political campaigning for the ongoing Lok Sabha elections by sharing something that can hurt BJp party.
Mocking the Prime Minister, Yadav shared the 17-second video on Twitter on Saturday, captioning it “Muft mei le lo 15 lakh, achche din aur jumla” which roughly translates to “Take for free Rs 15 lakh, good days and campaign rhetoric”.
Modi’s voice saying “Every Indian will get Rs 15-20 lakh” is vividly audible in the video in which Lalu Prasad is seen lip-syncing clad in a grey t-shirt.
He ends with “yeh ek jumla”
The video, that has already gathered more than 1,600 comments, 2,500 re-tweets and 12,000 likes on Twitter, is aimed at reminding the people about Modi’s 2014 promises of ushering better days and providing financial benefits to the people if his party was voted to power.
Meanwhile, Rabri Devi had claimed that Nitish Kumar offered to make her son Tejaswi Yadav Bihar’s Chief Minister in 2020 Assembly elections on a condition that Mr Kumar be made Mahagathbandhan’s prime ministerial candidate in the ongoing General elections.
Earlier this week, Lalu Yadav — who is serving sentences in fodder scam cases — issued a call to the people of Bihar to drive away “anti-reservation and anti-Constitution Narendra Modi.”
“In the election this time, everything is at stake, country, society, Lalu in other words one who gave you the aspiration to move about as equals with your heads held high and your rights, self-respect and dignity, are all at stake,” Mr Yadav wrote in the open letter which was released by his party after the Supreme Court dismissed his plea for bail in multi-crore fodder scam cases, dashing hopes of the RJD chief for electioneering during the Lok Sabha polls.
“I am imprisoned, not my thoughts,” he said adding that he was sharing his thoughts because only by doing so “we can fight against these divisive forces,” he said.
Bihar is voting in all the phases of the seven-phased elections.
