You betrayed people of Bihar: Lalu to Nitish Kumar
Amidst the last phase of the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief Lalu Prasad wrote an open letter to Nitish Kumar on Monday lashing out at the Bihar chief minister for "betraying" the people of Bihar. In the note posted on the verified Facebook page of the jailed leader on Monday morning, Lalu Prasad slammed Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar over his "lantern days are over" comment.
"It seems you have grown averse to light as you continue to play the same note of Lalu and his lantern over and over," Lalu wrote as he addressed the note to 'bhai Nitish'.
Taking a dig at the Janata Dal (United) symbol, an arrow, Lalu Prasad Yadav said, "While we removed evils of unemployment, torture, hatred and injustice from the state through the lantern light, your arrow is a symbol of violence," Lalu Prasad told as he asked Nitish on what basis was he talking about arrows in the era of missiles.
Calling him a speculator, Lalu Prasad told Nitish Kumar, "Taking a shortcut in fear and striking a compromise has been your old habit. You have betrayed 11 crore people. Now it is up to you to poke your arrow in flowers that grow in mud or hide them."
Five phases of elections will end in Bihar with polling in the remaining phase on May 19. The counting of votes will take place on May 23.
