New Delhi: Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief Lalu Prasad Yadav Thursday advised Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Gopinath Munde to "be a Bihari Yadav" when he takes rebirth.

Lalu`s advice to the BJP leader came while he was participating in a debate in the Lok Sabha on caste-based enumeration in Census 2011.

Responding to Munde, who said even God will ask which caste you opt for rebirth, Lalu said: "When you take re-birth, you should become a Yadav in Bihar."

"In fact, there is a religious scripture... he Yadav... he Yadav... he Madhav," Lalu said.

The Bihar leader also congratulated Munde for supporting the demand for caste-based census.

"In fact, you cleansed the BJP`s policies," Lalu said referring to the saffron party`s opposition to the implementation of the Mandal Commission report.

"When we were fighting for Mandal, you were fighting for Kamandal," Lalu said.
