Patna: RJD leader Lalu Prasad Yadav appears to be at his witty best these days.
After mimicking Prime Minister Narendra Modi during a speech, the Bihar strongman has now described Modi's lieutenant Amit Shah as a “fat man”.
The context was Thursday night's incident wherein BJP president Amit Shah got stuck in a lift of a government guest house in Patna near Raj Bhavan.
“Itna mota aadmi ko lift mein ghusna hi nhi chahiye, Bihar ka lift chhota chhota hai (A fat man like him should not enter a lift; lifts in Bihar are very small),” said Lalu reacting to the incident.
The incident happened at about 11.15 pm last night.
Apart from the BJP strongman, Shah's personal secretary and several other state BJP leaders were also inside the lift when it got stuck between the ground floor and the first floor.
They were able to come out only after 30 minutes when help was called in.
As per reports, after the toll-free emergency number of the company operating the lift failed to elicit any response, CRPF personnel were called in who forced open the door.
Shah had arrived in Patna yesterday for a two-day visit.
