Taunting the decision of the BJP to field its prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi from the Varanasi Lok Sabha seat, RJD president Lalu Prasad on Sunday said it will prove to be a "political graveyard" for Modi.

"What do you think of Varanasi. It's a completely secular place. Narendra Modi is going to be defeated there. It will prove to be his political graveyard," Prasad said.

He also questioned why Modi was "fleeing from his own state".

Prasad claimed BJP leaders were not getting seats to fight the Lok Sabha elections.

"This is hilarious. The BJP leaders are not getting places to contest the Lok Sabha elections. They are running helter skelter to find a seat. Modi is also one of them. He has fled from Gujarat in search for a safe constituency," added Prasad.

At a press conference on Sunday, the RJD chief said vested interests were spreading rumours that a couple of dissatisfied RJD candidates were thinking of returning Lok Sabha tickets.

He also lambasted media in this connection. "Whatever is reported in the media is on the directions of the owner and management of the media house. Journalists do what the owner or the management wants them to do," said Prasad.
