Lalu: Bihar rejects Modi

In Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s official kickstart to the Lok Sabha election campaigning in Bihar, the Prime Minister mocked the Mahagathbandhan by calling it Mahamilavat, which had the agenda of uplifting one of “their own family”.
Post rallies in Amethi and other cities of Uttar Pradesh, where he condemned the opposition for questioning and raising doubts over the airstrike and asking for proof, Modi once again attacked them for “making the enemies smile”, hinting at Pakistan quoting Indian leaders over evidence of the airstrike.
Amid reports of Modi and Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar’s Patna rally being a huge successful event, Rashtriya Janata Dal chief Lalu Prasad Yadav shattered the image, by saying that the number of people attending the rally was equal to the turnout he himself “could have attracted at a roadside paan shop”.
Yadav undermined the efforts of the PM, Bihar CM and Union Minister Ram Vilas Paswan by condescendingly saying that they had worked hard for months to organize the rally, but they should keep trying and “ask organizers to zoom the camera more”.
He used the hashtag #BiharRejectsModi and claimed that the government had starting lying and “throwing jumlas in desperation” as their confidence was shaken with their possible defeat in the upcoming general elections.
