Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief and Railway Minister Lalu Prasad elicited laughter from the treasury benches and even had Speaker Somnath Chatterjee smiling when he said in his inimitable style that the "rakshasas" (opposition) would be vanquished at "gau bela" (dusk) in the trust vote.
Speaking in the Lok Sabha during the debate on the trust motion, the RJD chief said: "The rakshasas are always vanquished at gau bela. And today too, the enemy will be defeated at gau bela. But the voting should take place just at after dusk, at 6 pm, at gau bela."
Gau, or cow, bela is the time the cows are herded back to their sheds after being allowed to graze in the fields the whole day.
Voting on the trust vote is scheduled for 6 pm and Lalu Yadav appealed to the Speaker not to change the time of voting.
He also targetted those opposing the deal, especially the Left, saying they wear "Made in America" watches and send their children to the US for studies even while railing against the US.
