Rashtriya Janta Dal (RJD) chief Lalu Prasad was caught napping in Lok Sabha on Friday.

Speaker Meira Kumar noticed Prasad sleeping in the house during the question hour and asked his party colleague, seated behind Prasad in the second row, to wake him up. "Umashankarji, please wake him up," she said.

Singh promptly tapped Prasad on his shoulder and pointed out that the Speaker had caught him sleeping. Later, JD(U) leader Sharad Yadav later took a jibe at Lalu.

"He was sleeping in Bihar for 15 years, now he is taking rest in Parliament….he is tired," Yadav said.
