Patna: Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief Lalu Prasad Yadav has lashed out at Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal for daring the BJP government to arrest Congress chief Sonia Gandhi and other party leader named in the Italian court order in the VVIP chopper scam.

Lalu then advised Kejriwal to refrain from demanding Sonia Gandhi's arrest, saying "This is too much".

 

When asked apropos of his embrace with Kejriwal during oath-taking ceremony of Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar last year, Lalu quipped if the Delhi CM was a “heroine” whom he would forcibly hug.

 

The image of Kejriwal embracing Lalu Prasad had gone viral and the Delhi CM had sought to defend his anti-graft credentials, saying it was the RJD chief who "pulled and hugged him".

 

The Delhi CM had faced flak from various quarters for hugging Lalu, a convict in the fodder scam.
