Lalu Yadav has no new ideas except putting his sons into politics, says PM Modi

Prime minister sells the idea of development and progress for the youth

GN Bureau | October 8, 2015



Prime minister Narendra Modi today did not mince his words and launched a direct attack on Lalu Prasad Yadav in his election rallies in Bihar. “ I'm amazed at Lalu Ji. His dialogues in 1990s and those now are the same. No new ideas.” Modi said on Thursday.

"For the first time, the Bihar polls are based on the idea of development and progress for the youth," he said while asserting that the youth of Bihar will make the right decision this time.

Modi hit out at Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) supremo Lalu Prasad Yadav, saying the former Bihar chief minister has insulted the Yadav community.

"The elections come and go, but it is the people that stay with you. Lalu Prasad Yadav has insulted the Yadav community by commenting about what they eat. In this election, there is 'jungle raj' on one side and 'vikas raj' on the other," Modi said.

"No one wants 'jungle raj' again. There have been around 4,000 incidents of kidnapping in Bihar under the 'jungle raj'," he added.

After addressing four rallies in Begusarai, Nawada, Samastipur and Munger districts, Modi is scheduled to stay at the Raj Bhavan in Patna on Thursday night. The prime minister will address two more rallies in Sasaram and Aurangabad on Friday.

His points at different rallies in Bihar today:

  • Successive governments of Bihar have neglected two features of Bihar -- water and youth (paani aur jawani), Bihar has so much water that it harms the people. Its youth have fire, but have to migrate for employment. We need to harness both.
  • The only industry that has done well in Bihar is kidnapping. The total figure for kidnapping is over 4000 from January to July.
  • I'm amazed at Lalu Ji. His dialogues in 1990s and those now are the same. No new ideas, no new thinking. Only new thing is that he has got his children into politics.
  • I want to know how the shaitan (the devil) got the address (of Lalu)...he recognises it was the shaitan the way people recognise their relatives.
  • Mahaswaarth Bandhan is nothing but the house of Big Boss. In the Big Boss house, the Boss says he is the playmaker and will make people dance to his tune. All the people who are in the house are scared of each other. Do we want this game to be played in Bihar?
  • How did "shaitan" (devil) find Lalu Prasad? I want to know how the "shaitan" got the address (of Lalu) ... he recognizes that it was the "shaitan" in a similar manner as people recognize their relatives.
  • Many polls were fought in the name of poor but nothing has been done. Now, Bihar has decided that state will move towards "Vikasvaad."
  • People who used to talk about Ram Manohar Lohia's ideology are now drinking Congress' water and abusing us.
  • Yaduvanshis have given India the White Revolution. See how a leader insulted the Yaduvansh.
  • There are no questions on what will be the result of Bihar polls. Bihar has decided to bring NDA to power.
  • Ye "Mahaswarthbandhan" kuch nahi hai, bas ek Big Boss ka ghar hai.
  • Before you vote, ask yourself - this "Mahaswarthbandhan," have they done anything for Bihar in the past 60 years?
