Yoga guru Ramdev has said a devil resides inside Lalu Prasad Yadav and that is making him to support eating of beef. Baba Ramdev slammed the RJD chief for his saying that Hindus also eat beef.

Baba Ramdev said that ugly politics is going on in the country over beef/cow slaughter and people are spreading hatred in the name of Hindus, Muslims, Christians.

“By saying that Hindus also eat beef, Lalu Yadav has insulted Yaduvansh. He says he is a Yadav but he cannot claim to Yaduvanshi any more. Such a person can never be a descended of Krishna but surely can be of the lineage of Kans.”

Meanwhile, not one to be left out in the ‘digital’ campaign for the Bihar election, Lalu Yadav chose to target his numero uno opponent Narendra Modi with a dubsmash video, mimicking the prime minister’s speeches. The video has been uploaded on the RJD party’s YouTube channel.

From Modi’s “mere pyare bhaiyo aur behno” to his trademark slogan during the 2014 election campaign “achche din anewale hain”, Lalu Prasad covered it all.

FIR against Owaisi

An FIR has been lodged against All India Majlis-e-Ittehad-ul Muslimeen (AIMIM) legislator Akbaruddin Owaisi by Kishanganj district administration for allegedly making inflammatory speech at an election rally on Sunday.

The police are also probing whether damage to idols at two temples in the town, which were discovered this morning, was a fallout of the speech, superintendent of police Rajiv Ranjan said.

Owaisi's speech, he said, violated provisions of section 144 of Crpc and an FIR has been lodged under sections 153A and 188 of IPC at Kochadhaman police station.

Section 153A deals with promoting enmity between different groups on grounds of religion, race, place of birth, residence, language and doing acts prejudicial to maintenance of harmony, while section 188 deals with disobedience to order duly promulgated by public servant.

The FIR has been lodged on the basis of magistrate's report, the SP said.

Owaisi had addressed an election meeting at Sontha haat village under Kochadhaman assembly constituency in Kishanganj district from where AIMIM state unit chief Akhtarul Iman is contesting.

He had allegedly used abusive language against all members of Parliament except his elder brother Asaduddin Owaisi who is AIMIM chief and an MP from Hyderabad. He also allegedly made provocative remarks against BJP leaders.

The police are probing if the damage to idols of goddess Kali in two temples in Nepalgarh locality had any connection to the speech.

The SP said idols were found damaged in two adjacent temples this morning and created tension in the town and protests.
