Ram Vilas Paswan worse than a prostitute: Pappu Yadav

Patna: At a time when the politicians have crossed all limits while making scathing personal attacks on their opponents, Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leader Pappu Yadav has made a highly objectionable remark on Lok Janshakti Party (LJP) chief Ram Vilas Paswan by saying that even prostitutes are better than him.

Commenting on Paswan`s decision to join the BJP-led NDA alliance, the former RJD MP said that even a prostitute does something better than such a politician, but he (Paswan) is even worst than them.
Yadav reportedly made the derogatory remark while campaigning for Congress candidate Sanjeev Prasad Tony in Hazipur constituency.

Lalu Prasad Yadav-led RJD is contesting the General Elections in alliance with the Congress.

RJD has fielded Pappu from Madhepura constituency against Janata Dal-United president Sharad Yadav.
Last year, citing lack of evidence, the Patna High Court acquitted Pappu Yadav, 53, in a case related to the killing of Communist Party of India-Marxist leader Ajit Sarkar in May 1998. Pappu remained in jail for 12 years. Pappu Yadav won the Lok Sabha polls from Purnia thrice - in 1991, 1996 and 1999 - and once from Madhepura (2004).

Madhepura`s significance also lies in the fact that the winner will send across a strong political message - either that the Yadavs support the social justice that Lalu Prasad champions and propagates, or the `development` plank which Sharad Yadav and Nitish Kumar are promoting.
