Former Bihar Chief Minister Rabri Devi has lashed out at an anchor working for ABP News TV after he used disparaging remarks about RJD supremo Lalu Prasad Yadav. Taking a dim view of the journalist addressing Lalu Prasad Yadav as Lalua, Rabri Devi questioned the ABP News anchor’s upbringing.

She tweeted, “He will also be addressing his father and mother like this affectionately. Poor chap may have received this upbringing from his parents. What’s his fault?”

ई अपने बाप को भी लाड़-प्यार से ऐसे ही बोलता होगा। बेचारे को माई-बाप ने संस्कार ही ऐसे दिए होंगे। इस बेचारे की क्या ग़लती? https://t.co/5HZTRmcBS0

Rabri Devi was reacting to a tweet posted by AAP’s Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Singh, who too had expressed his anguish over the Lalua remarks. Singh had written on Twitter, “Mr journalist addressed (Lalu Prasad Yadav) as Lalua and supporters got angry. The journalist said that he used the term with affection. Dear Mr journalist, do not ever make a mistake of using the term Modia with affection. You know what the consequences will be. Do you understand what I am trying to say?”

पत्रकार महोदय ने ललुवा बोला तो समर्थक नाराज़ हो गये, महोदय ने कहा प्यार से बोला किसी तरह बच गये, भैया पत्रकार महोदय कभी प्यार से मोदीया मत बोलियेगा वरना क्या होगा आप समझ सकते हैं, बुझ रहे हैं न pic.twitter.com/foOjg3jlyP

Other senior RJD leaders too slammed ABP anchor Anurag Muskan for showing disrespect to their leader. They blamed the journalist’s casteist mentality behind using the slur.

जातिवादी पत्रकार प्यार से "वाजपेइया", "नरेनदरा", “मोदिया”"राजनाथवा", "मालवइया" "भागवतवा", “गडकारिया” क्यों नहीं बोलते? ये प्यार से "ललुआ" या "मुलयमा" या “रामविलसवा” ही क्यों बोलते हैं? ये "प्यार" है या फिर इनके भीतर छिपी सवर्ण नफरत? https://t.co/Quwi260uSS

दो कौड़ी के पत्रकार @anuraagmuskaan की दो कौड़ी की ज़ुबान। साथियों देख लीजिये, ऐसे जातिवादी पत्रकारों के मन में ग़रीबों के मसीहा आदरणीय @laluprasadrjd जी के प्रति कितना ज़हर है। लालू जी ने युगों से स्थापित इनके बाप-दादाओं के वर्चस्व को उखाड़ फेंका, इसकी दर्द-ए-पीड़ा है इन्हें। pic.twitter.com/dhe4TWLvjD

ABP news channel was in Munger recently to hold a debate show on the ongoing Lok Sabha polls with local politicians and members of audience. However, things turned chaotic after RJD supporters reacted angrily to Muskan’s remarks, addressing Yadav as Lalua.

Faced with widespread condemnation, Muskan had expressed his regrets for his comments.
