Lalu Yadav replies to Nitish Kumar with limerick



Patna: After Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar's parody of Bollywood hit 'Jai Ho' against Lalu Prasad, it was the RJD chief's turn today to hit back with a limerick.

Dubbing Kumar a 'maharaj of misgovernance', Prasad presented an eight line limerick before newsmen which he said he had composed himself.

Accusing Kumar of making the people cry during floods and drought, he said that it was time for the chief minister's departure.

"After his departure we will ask him what kind of secular credentials he had by sitting in the lap of the RSS and hiding from the Maoists," Prasad chanted.

Recalling that Kumar was with him when he had formed his first government in 1990, Prasad claimed he had left and taken shelter in the RSS 'to save himself from the fodder scam cases'.

Prasad dared Kumar to project an upper caste leader as chief ministerial candidate in his place if he was really interested reaching justice to the upper caste people.

"If Nitish gets an opportunity he will like to become Chief Minister even on the moon and cannot sleep without power," he alleged.

Prasad said his party would ensure ten per cent reservation for the upper caste in the event of his party coming to power.

He delivered the limerick when JD(U) leader and General Secretary Durga Prasad Singh, from the Kushwaha Samaj from Samastipur district, joined the party.
