Lalu not to celebrate Holi as "EC is watching everything"
Patna: RJD supremo Lalu Prasad, famous for celebrating Holi in rustic style at his residence, has decided not to celebrate the festival this time as the election model code of conduct is in place.
"I have not become mad. The model code of conduct for the elections is already in place. The EC is watching everything, so no Holi this time. Holi khel kar humko phansna nahi hai (I don`t want to be in trouble by playing Holi)," Prasad said here on Friday.
Prasad is known to play Holi in a grand scale with his supporters and common people at his residence.
Apart from the model code, he cited fatigue as the reason not for not playing Holi this time.
The RJD supremo was taking rest at home today as continuous election campaigning since March 3 has started taking a toll on his health.
