Patna: Rashtriya Janata Dal chief Lalu Prasad created a stir when he turned up at the function organised by Homeopathic Science Congress in Patna instead of his son.
As per a report in NDTV, the RJD chief's son and Bihar Health Minister Tej Pratap Yadav had been invited to be the chief guest.
BJP leader Nand Kishore Yadav said that the incident showed as to who was running the government and the department.
He also said that Bihar CM Nitish Kumar should give Lalu the designation of 'super chief minister' officially.
Earlier, the RJD chief had visited Patna's Indira Gandhi Institute of Medical Science.
Creating a controversy, Lalu had verbally ordered the retrenchment of four sacked workers.
The report added that the RJD chief had also visited a couple of other hospitals.
At the same the BJP has also slammed the move to invite Lalu at a government function for the start of work on a bridge on river Ganga.
BJP leader Sushil Kumar Modi asked as to why was a person who was neither minister nor MP or MLA invited to an official function.
The Grand Alliance of RJD, JD(U) and Congress swept the Bihar Assembly polls.
However, Lalu cannot contest the elections or hold public office as he is convicted in fodder scam case.
But both his sons were given top ministries in the Nitish government.
