Janta Dal (U) president Sharad Yadav on Saturday took potshots at former ally BJP over controversies surrounding L K Advani's constituency and said Narendra Modi would be shown his 'real' place in Varanasi. "BJP is chanting "Har Har Modi" slogans...The place Varanasi revered by people due to Lord Mahadev will show him his rightful place," Yadav told reporters at Jaiprakash Narayan Airport in Patna on arrival from Delhi.

"Wait for the result the country will see next Prime Minister of Third Front," Yadav, an important figure behind brining 11 non-Congress and non-BJP parties together with Left parties, said. On bureaucrat-politician N K Singh switching over to BJP, Yadav described him as "opportunist".

He said Singh's departure would not make any impact on JD(U) as he had never been a true worker of the party.

Yadav, who is seeking re-election from Madhepura constituency, left for there. He is pitted against RJD Pappu Yadav in the seat. JD(U) spokesman and MLC Sanjay Singh also made a scathing attack at N K Singh for switching to "Modinomics" from "Nitishnomics."
