Congress hits back at Lalu Prasad Yadav over derogatory

New Delhi: Congress leader Meira Kumar hit out at RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav over a derogatory remark he used for the former’s party state chief Bhakta Charan Das.

She said that the comment hurt the self-respect of Dalit community.

A respected leader has used objectionable language against Bihar Congress in-charge Bhakta Charan Das, hurting self-respect of Dalit community of Bihar and the country and qualifies as an offence under SC/ST Act,” Kumar said.

Talking to media about Das’s alleged claims that RJD would join hands with the BJP, Yadav had said the Congress leader did not know anything.

Yadav also took a potshot at Congress hinting at a possible rift in the alliance.

“What is Congress' alliance? Should we align with them for losing? For forfeiting deposits (in elections),” said Yadav.

He has returned to Bihar after over 3 years, amid the strained relationship between Tej Pratap and his younger brother Tejashwi.

He will campaign in Tarapur (Munger) and Kusheshwar Asthan (Darbhanga) on October 27 for the upcoming bypolls in the state.

Notably, RJD was the single-largest party with 75 seats in the Bihar assembly elections held last year while its partner Congress only won 19 of the 70 seats it had contested.
