Just hours after Prime Minister Narendra Modi kick started his first election meeting after announcement of polls from Banka, RJD chief Lalu Prasad issued a series of tweets accusing the BJP’s biggest crowd puller of indulging in his time tested rhetoric of change and better job opportunities to woo voters, especially the youths.
He also posted a Dubsmash video mimicking Modi for failing to keep his promises of giving jobs to youths and bringing good days in the micro blogging site Twitter.
The video is one of the first by RJD chief captioned “Kya Hua tera vaada, Vo kasam vo irada, Vaadey hain, Vaadon ka kya, Chunav jeet gaye uske baad tu kaun aur tera kya” poking fun of Modi’s alleged failure to fulfill his poll promises. The video got over 70 retweets with the twitterati giving mixed opinion on the video.
Lalu in a tweet demanded that PM Modi should first spell out one single scheme launched for welfare of youths by the BJP led NDA government.
Modi, in his election speech, had said that progress of Bihar was imperative for faster growth of the nation, underlining that youths have a major role in reshaping the state’s fortunes.
“Janab, bhashano se pet nahin bharta (big speeches cannot eliminate hunger)’, Lalu said, in a tweet. In another tweet on the micro-blogging site with 1.26 lakh followers, the RJD chief said, youths were feeling cheated because of the BJP’s unfulfilled promise of giving 2 crore jobs.
“Yuva rutha, Modi jhootha, Pehley hi 2 crore yuvaon ko rojgaar ke naam par peeth mein chura ghopa gaya. Bihar mein kaun yuva neta hai inke pass. Bataein (youths have been cheated in name of jobs. BJP should say which are their youth faces in Bihar)”.
Earlier, Lalu had tweeted on PM Modi’s visit to Bihar by describing Modi as “Jumlo ke Ustad, Vaadon ke Baazigaar” and cautioned the people not to believe the latter’s poll rhetorics and false promises.
