Patna: Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief Lalu Prasad Yadav on Monday mocked Prime Minister Narendra Modi and compared him to 'Dhritrashtra' - an important character in the epic Mahabharat.

Continuing his tirade against BJP, the RJD chief said the people of Bihar will not let any outsider rule the state. "Does anyone know Bihar better than Nitish and Lalu? We will not let the people from Gujarat destroy the state," he tweeted this morning.

Taking a jibe at the PM, Lalu said Modi is like Dhritarashtra.

"The Dhritarashtra sitting in Hastinapur is not just blind but deaf and dumb too. BJP leaders are free to create anarchy in the society. This Dhritrashtra is afraid. He only shouts but when it is needed, he takes a vow of silence," he said in of his tweets.

The RJD chief also made a mockery of PM Modi's slogan “sabka saath- sabka vikas”, saying it actually means “kuch ka saath- sabka vinash” .

This is not the first time that the former Bihar chief minister has attacked PM Modi.

In a tweet posted on October 2, Lalu had held Modi responsible for Mahatma Gandhi's assassination.

Not just Twitter, Lalu had on Sunday debuted on Dubsmash to mock Modi in a video over his promise to bring back black money.

In the 17 second video, Lalu mimicked Modi who in his Lok Sabha election campaign said 'acche din aaenge' and promised to bring back black money and every citizen getting Rs 15 lakh to Rs 20 lakh.

He ended the video by calling Modi's poll promises 'jumla'.
