Fatua (Bihar): JD(U) leader Sharad Yadav today launched an unusually strong personal attack on the Gandhi-Nehru family and said Rahul Gandhi should be thrown away in the Ganges.

"These people with the symbol of hand (Congress party's symbol)...this country and this family, your family has also got fifty years (to govern).

"Motilal, Jawaharlal, Indira Gandhi, Sonia Gandhi and now Rahul Gandhi. Right now a new boy (babua) has come. He does it like this," Yadav said imitating Rahul Gandhi's style of pulling up his sleeves while making public speeches.

Stepping up attack on Rahul, Yadav, who is also the convenor of NDA, said addressing an election meeting here, "What do you know. Somebody wrote on the paper and gave it to you and you read it out... You should have been picked up and thrown away in the Ganges. But the people are sick...this country is unfortunate".

Congress took exception to Yadav's personal attack on the Gandhi- Nehru family and urged the Election Commission to take strict action against him.

"We strongly condemn Yadav's remark against the Gandhi Nehru family... The Commission must take cognisance and take strict action against him," Bihar Pradesh Congress Committee (BPCC) spokesperson Prem Chandra Mishra said.

He alleged that Yadav's remark was not only an insult but criminal as well.
