Former Bihar chief minister and RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav on Monday lashed out at the opposition parties and supported his coalition with the Congress during his visit to Rewari for a convocation event at a private college.

Lalu cited examples of Yoga guru Ramdev and Art of Living fame Sri Sri Ravi Shankar to take a dig at the BJP during his visit to the college.

“Kejriwal claimed I forcefully hugged him during a rally in Bihar. Is he a heroine from Mumbai that I would forcefully want to hug him,” Lalu asked. He said jinxed people have taken over the Indian government as a result of which the country is facing drought and famine.

Lalu also supported Congress chief Sonia Gandhi in the Augusta row. He said the BJP was raising the issue of Augusta deal to deviate people from major issues the country was facing. “No one is more honest than Sonia Gandhi,” Lalu said.

He also demanded an inquiry into the assets of holy saints of the country. “Saints have become businessmen. Ramdev is selling black oil while shouting foul on black money,” Lalu said.
