Lalu`s comment on tea seller is a good wish for Narendra Modi: BJP
Patna: With RJD President Lalu Prasad expressing doubt over Narendra Modi selling tea and claiming himself a "real" tea vendor, senior BJP leader Nand Kishore Yadav on Saturday said one thing is clear that even the RJD chief accepts that a tea seller could become Prime Minister.
"Its another thing that he is trying to compete in a race with Narendra Modi by claiming that he is a real tea seller. One thing is clear that even he is emphasising that a tea seller will become Prime Minister of the country," Yadav, who is leader of opposition in the state Legislative Assembly, told PTI.
The reaction also highlights that a humble background of tea seller is not a disadvantage but an asset for winning top constitutional post, he said.
Seeking to turn Prasad`s reaction to his party advantage, Yadav said "since he cannot contest election for 11 years following conviction in a fodder scam case indirectly he is wishing well to Narendra Modi sharing similar background of a tea seller."
Yadav, who has been winning Assembly elections from Patna Sahib seat for five times, himself used to sell tea in a cinema hall in the capital in his student days. His grandfather owned a canteen in a prominent cinema hall of the capital where he used to help him in selling tea and food stuffs during interval time.
